She graduated from Louisiana High School in Missouri. She then attended SCC and received her CNA. She continued her education at Malcolm X college in Chicago where she studied psychology. She was passionate about her education and had an insatiable appetite for learning new things.
Julie had a passion for taking care of others. She spent the majority of her career as a CNA on the West side of Chicago caring for elderly clients in their homes, always making sure they felt cared for and loved, as if they were her own grandparents. When Julie became ill, she moved to Wapello, IA where she eventually passed from complications of a stroke.
Julie was a funny and kind individual. She had a great heart, but if you crossed her she would let you know. Julie had an adventurous spirit. She loved to travel and see new things and places and was never afraid to start over anywhere. She loved to get dressed up. Julie was very close with her siblings and extended family and always kept in touch with them. She loved her grandmother and grandfather, Dorothy and Eugene Bryant, very much and could do no wrong in their eyes.
