She is also survived by her four brothers Larry, Michael, Paul, and Patrick.

However, her husband went against her wishes and had her cremated.

In the weeks leading up to her death, Julie wrote a letter that foreshadowed her demise.

The late victim wrote: “I pray I am wrong and nothing happens …but I’m suspicious of Mark’s suspicious behavior and fear for my early demise.

“If anything happens to me, he would be my first suspect.

“Our relationship has deteriorated to the polite superficial.

“I would never take my life because of my kids — they are everything to me!”

On February 21, 2008, Mark was found guilty of Julie’s murder and sentenced to life in prison.

The court overturned his conviction in 2013 and granted him a new trial.

The outcome remained similar to the first trial; Mark was found guilty of first-degree intentional homicide on February 1, 2023.
