A lifelong resident of El Dorado, she graduated from El Dorado High School in 1977 and attended the University of Arkansas where she was a member of Chi Omega sorority and graduated in 1981. She was dance teacher for many years at Gayle’s Dance Studio in El Dorado, a member of El Dorado Service League, a supporter of the South Arkansas Arts Center, and member of Pierian Club. Her most cherished organization was one that her mother-in-law, Robin Berry Trimble, gave so tirelessly towards, and that was Vera Lloyd Presbyterian Home in Monticello, Ark., where Julie served on the Board of Directors.
She was a member of First Presbyterian Church of El Dorado where she served as a deacon and worked lovingly as a “Martha” of the Presbyterian Women and a longtime member of the Mission Committee. She formerly was a member of the Chancel Choir and Bell Choir. Julie loved her church family dearly.
The family wishes to thank Julie’s loving caregivers who brought much comfort and compassion towards the end of her life: Sue Jenkins, Terry Jamerson, Willie Bridges, Joann Bright, Marie Frost and Lovie Hall.
