Julie Ann "Judy" Shoffit, 90, of Taneyville.

Julie Shoffit passed away at home, surrounded by her loving family, in the wee hours of Sunday, July 9, 2023. She was born July 17, 1932, in Dallas, Texas, the daughter of James Allen “Jimmie” Brown, Sr., and Eva May (Weaver) Brown. She was a talented decorator with a passion for travel.

During their retirement, she and Lee loved to travel, and traveled all over the country with her mother, Eva May Brown, along. They also frequently took their grandchildren, Jared and Jessica, on trips in their motorhome. They traveled to nearly 40 states, Canada, and Mexico.
