Julia was a loving and faithful wife who was always by Gary’s side. She loved the Lord and her life was devoted to serving Him unwaveringly. She, along with Gary, nurtured a decade’s long ministry for the Lord that included building Jesus First Church. She loved her family, loved her Church family, singing gospel songs, listening to Gary play his guitar, fishing at the beach, working with her flowers in her yard, making her house a home, and her puppies, Baron and Duke. She was a wonderful example of a Christian woman, mother, grandmother and First Lady of Jesus First Church. She will be missed by so many and those whose life she touched in the Lord’s work.
