Julie Irene Berry, 64, died July 21st 2019, at her home in Baker City, Oregon, after a long valiant battle with cancer. A private memorial will be held at a later date.
Julie was born December 31, 1954, in Prairie City, Oregon, to Lois Faye Harvey (Wilson) and Phillips C Harvey. She was the Second oldest of 7 children. Julie was very young when her family moved to Portland, Maine in 1959, where she went to Elementary School. Then in 1967 her mother and the 7 kids moved back to Grant County, Oregon. She always talked about her trip back to Oregon on the train with great detail and the beautiful dress that she wore the whole way back and how it had to be discarded because of it.
In 1971-72 she spent a school year in Seattle WA, living with her Aunt and went to Monroe High School. In 1972 she met her partner for life Richard “Dick” Berry and they were married on April 7, 1973. They proceed to have 3 children Shawn, Phillip and Adam.
In 2000, she moved to Baker City with her husband. She said she loved this area because she was closer to everything. Julie considered herself blessed to be “Grandma Care” for all her Grandkids, whom she doted over immensely. She enjoyed her visits with her family and always had a story about one of her Grandkids, either Grant, Jadyn, Isaac, Elijah or Brynn. Julie said once that she was cursed with only having boys in her house and then was blessed when Megan and Trista joined her family, because she confided in both of them immensely. Julie cherished her adventures in the Bourne area and treasured her scrapbooking time. She was a Caring Mother, Loving Wife and Amazing Grandmother!
She was preceded in death by her parents Lois and Phillips Harvey; her older sister Melanie Harvey and Brother David Harvey
Julie leaves behind her husband of 46 years, Dick Berry; sons Shawn, Phillip and Adam Berry; sisters April and her husband Tim Olds, Barbara Harvey and Terri Casper; brother Dennis and his wife Diane Harvey and numerous nieces and nephews that she kept in contact with over the years.
