Ms. Julia Galbreath Obituary

Reflections of a Life Well-Lived

Julia Mae Johnson was born May 24, 1933, in St. Louis, Missouri to the union of Ocreta and Julian Johnson.  She was the oldest of only two children, and both parents and her sister Beverly Ford, preceded her in death.

Julia accepted Christ at a young age and was an usher at Antioch Baptist Church.  She was educated in Missouri Public schools and became a seamstress following her passion for sewing.  For many years, Julia was known for making beautiful wedding and prom dresses, praise dance uniforms, and altering anything you needed.  She worked for Bridal Original for many years until she retired. 

Her signature line was “Praise the Lord,” whenever she entered a room.  She even had her great grandchildren running around greeting people the same way.  She enjoyed playing cards with her family at get-togethers and listening to church music.

Julia was also preceded in death by a daughter-in-law Darlene Galbreath, a niece Cynthia, and a nephew Lynn.  She was loved and will be sorely missed.

She leaves behind three children, Diane (Nathaniel) Brown, York Galbreath, and Sheri (Edward Hellm) Galbreath; Seven grandchildren, Lisa, Selena, Andrew, Morrel, Quintin, Quiniqua, and Quavon; Five great grandchildren, ZaNesha, Dyesha, Philishia, Jevon, and Arron; 15 great-great grandchildren who she adored; nieces, Brenda and Nena; nephews, Ricardo and Gerald; special cousins, Pat, Thelma, Jackie, and Betty; and a host of other nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
