Julie was born on December 16, 1950 in Riverview, Michigan to Wylie and Eavy (nee Eldridge) Pittman. She later attended beauty school and worked as a talented hair dresser for many years. Julie was a hairdresser for over twenty years at Cheryl's Hair Network in Warren before retiring in August of 2020. Julie was one of the kindest people anyone could ever meet. She was always known for her caring and loving ways. Julie was known to make house calls to clients who could no longer come into the salon, and continued to do this throughout her own illness. Not only was she a talented hairdresser, she was also a skilled seamstress in her younger days and was always crafting in her spare time. Julie could be found working on crafts and wreaths for family and friends. She loved to keep a well appointed and updated home, and was always shopping for the latest designs and furniture. Julie also always took pride in her appearance, and always took the time to make sure her hair and makeup were as perfect as could be. Outside of her work, Julie enjoyed watching television, and especially liked to watch The Golden Girls and The Walking Dead.
Julie was not only a wonderful mother, but also adored her grandchildren and loved every moment she spent as a grandmother. Above everything, Julie loved her entire family and especially enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren. No matter what was going on in her life, she always wanted to know how everyone else was doing. She was a truly courageous woman who would let nothing stop her, even into the final days of her life. Her smile and kindness will truly be missed by all who knew her, but memories of her will continue on in all who loved her. Julie's sense of humor, devotion to others and love will never be forgotten.
Julie is survived by her loving daughter Christine Pittman; cherished grandchildren Asher and Henry Meisels; beloved sister Patricia Langlois; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents and siblings James Pittman, Ruby Bland, Annie Hill, Joanne Richards, Harold Pittman, Thomas Pittman, Jimmie Wagne, Lloyd Pittman, Clifton Pittman, Mildred Webster, and Kenneth Pittman.
