Julaine was born on August 12, 1938 in Cleveland, Ohio. She was a graduate of James F. Rhodes High School in Cleveland and a proud 1960 graduate of the Scripps College of Journalism at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. After graduation, she worked as a reporter for the Berea News in Berea, Ohio, until the birth of her first child. The family moved to Cincinnati in 1963, and Julaine began attending St. James Episcopal Church in Westwood shortly thereafter. When the church discovered her talents as a writer, she was asked to take on the duties of producing the church newsletter, and she served as the editor of the St. James Journal for 40 years, until 2013. She also faithfully worked as the secretary at the church for 30 years, and in many volunteer leadership roles. Serving God and the people of St. James was truly her heart and soul.

Julaine enjoyed gardening, bowling, shopping and attending Broadway musicals. She and Bob loved to travel, especially their yearly trip to Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains with friends. She collected cardinals and lighthouses and loved to send greeting cards for all occasions.

A resident of Delhi Twp. for over 50 years, Julaine died peacefully on Monday, January 28, at Ohio Living Llanfair after a long journey with Parkinson’s Disease.
