Julie was the youngest of 7 children, Julie went on to become a dedicated worker for Plain Talk Printing before deciding to travel and get a good look at the beauty that surrounded her. Julie was a cherished Aunt to 12 very lucky nieces and nephews who she loved unconditionally as if they were her own, Julie was very dedicated to her role as an Aunt as she was unable to have her own children, Julie was a momma to her fur baby Trouble. Julie also had the joy in spoiling and entertaining her many great nieces and nephews before falling ill and being denied the chance to do so with her many great-great and great-great-great nieces and nephews. Julie was given the horrible reality that her life would be cut short a few years back when she was diagnosed with terminal breast cancer.

Julie was a “lefty” and taught herself the skills of knitting and she absolutely loved playing pool, riding her Harley and fishing along with many other hobbies.

Julie “Juls” leaves behind to cherish her memory, her Mother Luetta Bowlby, her brothers Byron Bowlby and Tom Bowlby and her sister LouAnne Bowlby, her many nieces and nephews and a host of other family and friends.

Julie left this world with her loving nieces by her side to run to the ones that left her not so long ago that she’s missed so very much, her Father Harold Bowlby Jr., her brother Harold Bowlby the 3rd, her sisters Kay Page and Bonnie Bowlby (Miller) and her fur baby DOG
