Mrs. Julianne Braden, age 77, passed away Tuesday, March 3rd, in North Florida Regional Medical Center, Gainesville, Florida after succumbing to a long illness. Known for her kindness, patience, and internal strength, she quietly responded to the needs of others all of her life. Her dedication to family, friends, and the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was extraordinary. Julie was born in Miami, Florida to Dr. Thomas Earl and Elspeth Kelley Moore.

As a young adult, she joined the Mormon Church and served in numerous callings in Miami and Lake City, Florida. While working in the Family History Center in Lake City, Julie’s interest in genealogy and her computer skills led her to engage and teach many people to hone their family’s lineage. She continued her genealogy tutoring until her death. For years following the death of her parents, Julie served as General Manager of the family business. Julie was a member of the Edward Rutledge Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) as well.
