Julie was a teacher in Sparta for 30 years. She enjoyed serving on the National Ski Patrol for 45 years as well as volunteering with a local ambulance service, Tyrone Township Fire, and Ottawa County Sheriff Mounted and Marine units. Julie liked to camp, scuba dive, and kayak…but her real passion was horseback riding. She received her first horse as a wedding gift and never looked back! Julie will be missed by all who knew her.
