Julie was the daughter of Jack Perry Harrison and Millie Ruth Boynton. Her mother, Millie, loved her dearly and would spend hours rocking her sweet baby daughter. Julie grew up to be a beautiful woman, kind, compassionate and loyal. She had a happy childhood with her brothers, Randy and Dennis and her sister Susie. There were many extended family members and some of the best times were when all the cousins, aunts and uncles got together. She attended Santa Fe High School and after graduation married Joe Ferkin on Apr 22,1947. To this union were born four children: Forest Joseph, Fawn Jence, Field Jonathan, Flint J.and Freesia Joy. She loved her children and spent many hours enjoying and teaching them. She was active in her church, even becoming the Relief Society Pres. serving the women of the ward. She loved the sisters in the ward with all her heart. She will surely be missed by many people, friends and family.

A note about the picture. In 1954 the family gathered at the cemetery to clean up and place flowers on the graves. It was a time to greet friends and tell stories and share memories of those who had passed on. Afterwards, everyone would go to a nearby park and have a potluck lunch. We looked forward to it every Memorial Day. In the picture is Julie Ruth Harrison and her cousin, Wayne Wilson Harrison sitting near their grandfatherís tombstone in this very cemetery
