As a young woman, she met and later married her husband Keith Marshall, and together they shared three beautiful daughters, Shawntay, Tanesha and Keionnie.
Julia was a very loving and fun filled person. She brought life to many people when in the same room. Julia loved to sing, dance, and draw. Her favorite song was "Groove Me" by King Floyd. Even when faced with adversity, she always found a way never to let it get her down. Her motto was, "Put the H on your back and handle it," as well as "Keep it pushing." She touched so many in her time on earth and loved unconditionally.
