Julia Ann Edwards (nee Hutson), loving and dearly beloved wife of William M. Edwards, entered peacefully into her eternal rest on August 12, 2013 at home among family and friends. Born in Baltimore, MD, she was the youngest daughter of John T. and Lillian Hutson.

Julia was preceded in death by her first husband Eugene Heemann in 1998; by sisters Elsie (Joe) Siwa and Mary (Sam) DeRita; and by brothers William Hutson, John Hutson Jr., Richard Hutson, Henry Hutson, and George Hutson.
Her many joys of daily life included her grandchildren, nationwide travel, home gardening , mountain hiking, and most especially, partner dancing. Although her vibrant life was cut short, she lived every day with a positive passion and a royal grace.
