Juli Anna was a resident of Woodstock for the last 20 years.
Born in San Diego, CA. in 1944, Juli Anna grew up at the beach in Playa Del Rey, CA.
She was the daughter of Corinne Bailey and Robert DeLauer and later adopted by Corinne’s second husband, Bill Firmen. Juli was granddaughter to her beloved Charlotte (Rosy Cheeks) Bailey.
Juli Anna loved growing up on California’s beaches and the freedom of playing by the ocean with her younger brother Dean and all of her childhood friends.
She was married at 18 to her high school sweetheart, Brad Gardner, and was a loving mother to Tamara Gardner, Gina Maloney, and son in law David Maloney. Juli moved to Woodstock, NY in 1998 to be near her daughter Gina, knowing grandbabies would be coming soon. She was a playful and eternally loving Grandmother to Quinn and Chloe Maloney. She filled their early lives with unconditional love, creativity and wonderment.
Juli was a kind and loyal friend. Her dearest friends were Peggy W., Kathy J., Ellie M and Patti. They walked thru life always supporting each other. Juli Anna was a beautiful spiritual being that loved the beach, dancing in her hay day, decorating, creating art and most of all her family. She has finally earned her wings after a long battle with lung disease. Juli Anna left this earth on November 10, 2018 at the age of 74.
She will forever be in our hearts and always loved. A family service will be held in Playa Del Rey, CA in the Spring.
