Julia was a political activist with a passion for politics and worked on a several democratic campaigns. She would hand out flyers to alert commuters about President Obama at the Hamilton train station long before he was a household name. She wanted people less fortunate to have a fair share at life.

Her lifelong friendship with Catherine Nagle meant the world to her and she cherished it her entire life. We will miss her wonderful sense of humor and her laugh was always contagious. She was the life of any gathering and would regularly say “that’s my stage whisper, I can’t help it” as her voice often carried throughout the house.
