Julie worked for the State of Louisiana for many years in Vocational Rehabilitation and Disability Determination. She enjoyed her beloved pets. Her dogs had an elaborate wardrobe, and it brought her much joy dressing them up and photographing them, often with themed backgrounds. She also enjoyed collecting antique and collectible dolls, bears, and a few other favorites.

She is survived by her husband of 28 years, Eric Boatner; daughter, Melody O’Daniel; son, Jonathan Boatner; grandchild, Colton Martin; sister, Leita Boatman and husband Terry; and a host of friends.
