Julia has been a great friend. I first met her when she became a volunteer coordinator in Allegan in 1978 and when she got a promotion and came to Lansing social services we grew very close. I traveled with her to Mexico several times and to Italy once. After work we Went out to eat. I spent Some Christmases together. When I move back to Lansing in 2013 we spent almost all holidays together. She will be missed by many, she was a smart caring woman.

I am saddened by the loss of my sorority sister and friend. She and I go back to our college days in the early 60s. God will keep her in his care forever more.

As Julia’s older brother, I want to pay special appreciation to Estes Leadley Funeral Home for your very professional and kind service and support. My younger sister, Marva Pritchett, who coordinated for our family had nothing but praise for your support. Thank you very much!
