    There is only one word to describe dearest Julie and that is ‘special’.
    She shared her love, knowledge, courage, optimism, sense of fun, thoughtfulness and kindness so freely and so generously with us all.
    An irreplaceable friend who blest our lives, never to be forgotten and always missed.

    Julie was a committed and inspired early years literacy educator. As a Reading Recovery Tutor, through her gentle, warm approach to teaching, she supported the learning of teachers over many years and in turn influenced the lives of hundreds of children with the gift of literacy. She was a well-respected colleague and friend, always smiling and generous with her time. Julie will be sadly missed by the Reading Recovery community nationally and internationally. With sympathy to Brian and her family.

    Julie had such an influence on me as an educator. I will always look back on my Reading Recovery days with appreciation that I had the opportunity to learn from such a knowledgeable empathetic and kind leader. Julie was always able to lead positive conversations yet make you think hard with her penetrating questions. She did so much to build understanding of reading locally, nationally and worldwide for parents and teachers. My sympathy to Brian and her family.
