I had the privilege to work with Julie for many years, she was such a genuine person who always had a smile and a quick comment to brighten anyone's day. She had love for her family but also treated co-workers as family and if challenges arose she would always ask what she could do, at work or otherwise, very unselfish. Many good memories, she definitely made a positive impact! Mike Henke

Julie is my hero. She came to Centura everyday with a smile on her face, never once complained about how she felt and always asked how others were doing. She fought courageously and with so much grace. Her "boys" of the summer loved working with her and just being around her. She impacted so many at Centura. Thank you for Julie for your friendship and thank you her family for sharing her with us. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
