Julia Sowers, better known to her family as "Sissy," was the second born child of Albert Sebok (1903-1968) and Irene Vera Balla (1913-2006).

As a young girl, she lived with her parents in California and Texas. In 1961, she married Loren Dale Sowers (1939-1998), the son of Ora Sowers (1905-1978) and Stella Catherine Garrison (1908-1970), in Reno, Washoe Co., Nevada. Following their marriage, Julia and Loren lived in Texas for a while before moving to Florida by 1967, though they returned to Texas about two years later. Julia and Loren had two daughters together: Pamela and Debra.

Soon after the birth of her youngest daughter, Julia was diagnosed with breast cancer. Treatments, however, were unsuccessful, and the cancer spread. Julia passed away at her home in Houston, in the arms of her niece who was helping Julia following her treatments. Julia was buried in Old Hardin Cemetery next to her father.

When my Mother (her niece) hears this song, she thinks of her Aunt Sissy--it's called "Sissy's Song" by Alan Jackson:

Why did she have to go
So young I just don't know why
Things happen half the time
Without reason without rhyme
Lovely, sweet young woman
Daughter, wife and mother
Makes no sense to me
I just have to believe

She flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
By the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees
And she walks with Jesus and her loved ones waiting
And I know she's smiling saying
Don't worry 'bout me

Loved ones she left behind
Just trying to survive
And understand the why
Feeling so lost inside
Anger shot straight at God
Then asking for His love
Empty with disbelief
Just hoping that maybe

She flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
By the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees
And she walks with Jesus and her loved ones waiting
And I know she's smiling saying
Don't worry 'bout me

It's hard to say goodbye
Her picture in my mind
Will always be of times I'll cherish
And I won't cry 'cause

She flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
By the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees
And she walks with jesus and her loved ones waiting
And I know she's smiling saying
Don't worry 'bout me
Don't worry 'bout me
Don`t worry 'bout me
