Julie’s marriage to Bob, while serving in the U.S. Air Force, took her to: Hampton, VA; Fairbanks, AK and Colorado Springs, CO.

Both children bring tremendous joy and love to their family. Julie was employed with the U.S. Air Force / Civil Service for almost 35 years, retiring in February 2007. At her retirement she held the distinguished position as the Protocol Officer for the Air Reserve Personal Center, located in Denver, CO. Upon retirement Julie received the civilian award for “For Outstanding Civilian Service to the Department of the Air Force.”

Julie’s retirement provided the opportunity for her to do what she loved best; caring for the babies/children; her first grandchild; Emma Julia Brown, born November 2006. Julie’s grandchildren include; Caiden Ronald Brown, born February 2011, Hadley Grace Beeman, born March 2012 and Lucy Claire Beeman, born January 2014.

Julie Beeman and family

She was an old soul, loved all, always had a kind word, was a great listener, willing to help, loved children, enjoyed all animals, laughed often, smiled always and could light up any setting with her presence. Nowhere are the qualities more evident than at Christmas. For over 23 years; Julie opened her home during the Christmas season – with over 100 people attending most years and over 36 Christmas trees to admire, the entire home was filled with; family, friends, love, joy, food, and for a few hours the air of peace and joy.

During the last four and a half years, Julie was a resident at Chelsea Place Memory Care in Aurora, Colorado. Without any doubt; the management and care staff at Chelsea Place provided; love, engagement, protection, compassion, quality care and many beautiful memories for Julie throughout the years. Our family is eternally grateful to all of their staff and especially; Jenni and Toni – whose love of Julie flowed endlessly during her final days.
