Julie A. Christman, age 81, of Toledo, passed away on March 22, 2020 surrounded by her family.  She was born on April 19, 1938 to Frederick and Gladys (Batt) Marden in Brighton, England.  
   Julie came to America in 1956 and was truly proud to be an American citizen.  She married Carl Christman Sr. who preceded her in death in 1969. After raising her family, Julie was a nanny for several families in the area.
   Julie will be remembered for her humor, kindness and compassion. She was quick to forgive and always saw the silver lining.  If Julie loved you, you were her Bubby. Julie was an avid Dallas Cowboys fan, a huge animal lover, and was known at the Humane Society as the official kitty cuddler.  She loved ice cream, garage sales and sitting on the porch sharing coffee and gossip. She also loved car rides while listening to her favorite band, Journey and Josh Groban.  Julie fought a valiant fight with dementia with her family by her side.
  Julie will be dearly missed by her children, Jacqueline Christman, Laura (Tom) Villagomez, Carl (Amy) Christman Jr., Patricia (Cliff) Winter, Sarah (Mike) Quigley and Allison Hamilton; grandchildren, Tom Jr., Julie, Marcus, Jennifer, Anthony, Jessica, Jamie, Ashley, Stephanie, Sarah, Samantha and Jordan; 26 great grandchildren; and many extended family and friends. Julie was preceded in death by her husband, Carl Sr.; her parents; and siblings, Phyllis, Kenny and Barbara.
   The family would like to express a special thank you to her wonderful caregivers at Heartland of Waterville and the Lakes of Sylvania for their compassionate care and support.
   Due to current restrictions regarding public gatherings, services will be private.  A celebration of life will be held at a future date.
   Memorial tributes may be directed to the Humane Society.

Julie was 5 years my senior growing up on Whitehawk Estate in Brighton, England, she was my idol. I would watch her walk past my house as she was coming home from work, smartly dressed in nice clothes and high heels - I always wanted to be just like her. When Julie got married and moved to the US I used to picture myself doing the same thing one day. Well it happened, I got married in1962 and left for Texas. I too was very proud to become an American citizen. Julie and her sister Phyllis came to visit me around 1967 with a car load of kids, I had just one. Soon after that we lost touch, the family moved to Toledo. Fast forward to 2015 and advanced technology, I located her, called her and it was so special. Around that time though, and I didn’t know it, Julie had onset dementia and over time it got worse. I know when I talked to her she couldn’t remember who I was, it was sad - I had gone through that with my mother, devastating. Last year Julie’s daughter Sarah tracked me down on FB and told me her momma was in a nursing home. We became FB friends and I got to see sweet pictures and videos of Julie, thank you Sarah for being so thoughtful. Rest In Peace my sweet idol Julie, I will always remember you fondly and will see you in heaven one of these days.

Wow, where do I begin... this wonderful woman molded me into the woman I am today and I know I have so much more to prove and do, but with her advice and guidance I know I'll make her proud. My Granny was a treasure and if you had the pleasure to know her and be a part of her life count yourself lucky. She's taught us all so very much, but her one liners are a rare treat!
Punch it Mabel..... or Buckle up For Safety..... will always be used in my household 💜 I love this woman with all my heart and not a day will go by and I won't think about her! She was our rock!! LOVE YOU BUNCHES GRANNY!!! I promise I'll make you proud!!
