What a wonderful lady! So energetic, always smiling. Without Julia & her family, there would be no St Paul Farmers Market. The whole community has benefited from her many talents. Many families have one of her famous quilts to remember her by. Never an idle day for Julia, rain or shine.
We will remember her with smiles.
Our condolences to family & friends.
