Julie Ann Mearns walked through Heaven’s Gates on Thursday, March 9, 2017, in Arcadia, Florida.
Julie was born on Jan. 25, 1961, in Parkersburg, West Virginia.
She moved with her family to Punta Gorda in March 1962. During her school years, Julie attended Charlotte County Schools. She studied cosmetology and enjoyed many years helping people look their best. Julie cherished her children and her family.
Even though Julie struggled with her own imperfections in her adult life, she always expressed kindness and love for those around her. The family is glad that she is happy, healthy, free and now walking with Jesus.
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, but love leaves a memory no one can steal.
Julie is survived by her children, John Eric, Lana and Megan; her grand-baby, Jacek; special friend, Hector; loving parents, Jack and Shirley Mearns; sister, Debby Mearns; brother, Jeffrey (Diane) Mearns; and many nieces and nephews.
