Julie, originally from Southampton, moved to Wolfscastle in 1967 when she married local man Mr Tommy George. They had two daughters Sian and Carys. Julie helped Tommy run their hardware/ironmongery store in Letterston until his death in 1998, after which she finally retired in 2000.

Julie had a very strong faith and a keen lifelong interest in the Bible. She loved ballroom dancing, music, gardening and travelling, but loved nothing more than being with her family. Her two grandchildren Jessica and Keiran brought her great joy.
