Julia was born on March 3, 1970 in Clinton, MO to Joseph Charles and Martha Jerrilee Goodrich.
“JuJu” as she was affectionately called by her family and friends was one of the most loving, caring, giving people you would ever want to call a friend. She was born with an adventurous streak and we would often find she would and could try anything new. Nothing scared this girl! She lived her life with amazing grace and she lived more in her short time than most of us do in a 100 years. She was independent to the extreme and a very dedicated employee to whomever she was employed by.
She loved to dance, and going rock climbing in her jeep was one of her favorite things to do. At every opportunity she could, she would jump on her beloved motorcycle and just go. Feeling the wind on her face and the sound of the bike roaring was one of the many things she missed in the final months of her life. She rediscovered her faith shortly before she passed and fell in love with Jesus all over again and pushed us all to get back to church. She loved family more than anything and enjoyed cooking for all of them and she did that well. Time spent with family and friends and just enjoying life was a true calling for her.
Those left to cherish her memory are her parents, Joseph & Martha Goodrich; brothers, Ryan Goodrich, Andy Goodrich and wife, Amy; sister, Amanda Goodrich- Martin; nieces and nephews, Makayla Goodrich, Brooke Goodrich, Madison Goodrich, Cole Goodrich, and Chaz Martin; great-nephews, Hunter Brown and Killian Brown; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. The family would like to give a special thanks to her cousin/sister Erin Brando for all her hard work in taking care of Julie in her battle.
She will be greatly missed this beautiful soul known to us as JuJu.
