At the request of the family, there will not be any visitation held as cremation has already taken place.
The family has suggested for those desiring to do so, that memorial considerations can be made to the White Pine Library, where the family will help select books on diabetes research and education. There will be envelopes available at the church.

Mike & Lori, Carol & Roger and family, My condolences for the passing of Julia. I am glad to have had the pleasure of knowing her for the past couple of years. The many stories she shared about your family, her Beloved Carl, England and Carl her cat. One “Brilliant & Lovely” woman that I will always remember fondly. Dolores Johansen P.S. In Julia’s sense of humor, was wondering if you informed the Queen of her passing?

Carol, Mike, and Steve, May the many years and memories you had with your Mom bring you “all” comfort and peace in days to come. I remember your Mom as one “classy” lady who loved being with her “kids”….. With deepest regards and sympathy.. Jane
