Julia "Julie" Gay Jarvis
The Jarvis Family will gather on Thursday, October 20, 2022, to remember and honor our beloved sister and aunt, Julie Gay Jarvis. Julie passed away on Wednesday, October 12, 2022, at the age of 70 after years of numerous health challenges.
Julie was born on August 15, 1952, to Keith DeWayne and Beulah Marie Jarvis. Her twin sister Jamie preceded her in death in 2018.
After graduating from Rolla High School in 1971, she went to get her associate degree from Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho. She earned her LPN certification and was a practicing nurse working in hospitals in Idaho Falls, Idaho and Amarillo, Texas. Then because she wanted to be closer to her family, she moved back to Kansas to work in the Stevens County Hospital.
Julie loved her fur babies, Maggie, and Molly; two sweet schnauzers. She, like her Aunt Monie and Aunt Wilma, loved to keep in contact with all her family and friends. Through the years, Julie wrote thoughtful, and heart felt cards and letters to everyone. Keeping in touch and keeping family traditions going was very important to her. She loved hearing from her family and friends, and cherished her coworkers, and loved her college roommates; Donna, MaryEllen, and Laurel.
Julie loved her Savior and was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Throughout her life she always strived to live the commandments and follow the teachings of Jesus Christ by loving to serve others.
Her chosen career as a nurse allowed her to fulfill her desire and compassion to serve and love all those around her. Julie loved her patients, and they loved her.
She was blessed to leave this earthly home to return to her Heavenly Home where family members, who had already passed on before lovingly greet her with opened arms. She is preceded in death by her mother and father, Keith and Beulah Jarvis, twin sister Jamie, and brother Mark.
Julie leaves behind her sister, Lana Jarvis of Rolla, KS.; sister-in-law, Terri Jarvis, Navasota, TX.; nieces and nephews, Clark Jarvis and wife Crystal, Pflugerville, TX., Stacie Powers and husband Nate, Provo, UT., Shad Jarvis and wife Cortney, Spring, TX., Brandon Jarvis and wife Linsay, Navasota, TX., and Jenny Lewis and husband Dan, Jacksonville, NC.; and twenty-four great nieces and nephews. She will be missed by them all.
