In 1887 she married Francis Mills Swanzy who was born in Ireland and was for many years managing director of Theo H.

For over a half a century, Julia was a leading civic and social figure in Honolulu. She is best remembered for her work in education; she established and directed the activities of the Free Kindergarten and Children's Aid Association. She was also the chairman of the recreation commission in the City and County of Honolulu. She donated land on which was established the Swanzy Beach Park at Kaaawa on O'ahu's North Shore in 1921 and it was named in her memory. She restored Hulihee Palace at Kailua, Hawaii'i, which was built in 1837. The Swanzys had two daughters.
