After her marriage, she worked at Tiny Tots Child Care in Jamesville, NY as a childcare provider which she also did for many years from her home. She loved all children and was loved by all those she cared for and they called her “Aunt Julie”. Julie was a devout Catholic and a former parishioner of Immaculate Conception Church in Fayetteville and of Holy Cross Church in DeWitt. She was a devoted, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and aunt. She was known for her beautiful selfless spirit, strength, kindness towards strangers and the elderly.
