Julia’s Love – Marion Newton “Mook” Tredaway passed May 1986. They met in a dance hall and the courtin’ was on, all the way up until their marriage in January 1978. Bitter-Sweet Love… they never lost being smitten with each other. Love never has come in age with us.
Julia is survived by two loves of her life, sons…. Robert Stone and his wife Lise and they live in Ooltewah, Tennessee; Bryan Stone and he lives in San Angelo, Texas.
She was raised in Big Spring, Texas from grade school to High School.
Julia was a rebel who tried to keep her fire alive. She tamed the fire inside her but would never let anybody else tame her. She was a non-conformist who would not follow the heard just because the masses did. She would question everything about it.
She was always a jack of all trades and master of none… hairdresser, worked with her love, taking care of a cattle and sheep ranch in between his main job, a foreman’s wife for the Big Bend Ranch, Diamond A Cattle Co.. After he soared, she worked for Lajitas Inn at Lajitas, Texas and then moved back to civilization, Big Spring where she worked for Howard College Bookstore. She later moved to San Angelo, Texas and became the Howard College Bookstore Manager. She took another leap of faith and worked for Shannon Medical Center, where she worked in registration, and later worked in medical records, and the business office billing. She then took another leap of faith into West Texas Rehab Rehabilitation Center and retired from there in July 2014.
She was blessed by the Grace of God with a sobriety date of January 1, 1992, 26 years plus in AA and Alnone.
Per her wishes there will be no funeral or memorial services. She will be cremated and her ashes put into Bread and Butter Pickle jars, one for each of her sons. (Oh how she loved those Bread and Butter Pickles as far back as she could remember the taste)
Julia wants all to know how very blessed and thankful she was to all her friends in her life who supported her, uplifted her, comforted her and brought joy to her soul. Just got to mention her “Chitty Chatty Girls WTRC, The little Raschals of her do-wah-diddy journey, St. Gabriel Palitive/ Hospice Care that helped make this last leap of faith with her and became family with simplicity and humor… We can pluck it or Pull it moto.
