Julia was a woman of unwavering faith in God, and the Heart of the Orellana family. She was a devoted wife to Marcial Orellana for 67 years, whom she is happily reunited with in heaven. She is the loving mother of ten surviving children and many beautiful grandchildren.

As a member of the St. Augustine Church Parish she served in the Eucharistic Ministry and Ministry to the sick. She cherished spending time with her large family, the more the merrier. Her nurturing and caring spirit was evident by her unconditional giving of her many God given talents; cooking amazing and delicious meals, sewing, crafting, gardening, crocheting and passion for creativity. She loved sitting on her front porch surrounded by her colorful flower garden. Her self-taught mastery of crocheting is a gift that keeps on giving and will continue to give comfort to all those who enfold themselves in her beautiful creations. Every stitch made with love. Her kind and loving presence, and compassionate spirit will forever live on through her children, grandchildren, great grand children, great, great grandchildren, and all who loved her dearly.
