Flowers for her mass may be sent to St. Andrew's on the day of the service. Julia was born on April 14, 1928 to Cruz and Rosa Guevara in Arabella, New Mexico. She was married to Robert Flores (deceased) for 68 years. She was an active volunteer at San Mateo Church for many years. Regarding employment, her favorite job was that of teacher's assistant for young children with special needs, often taking bright ribbons and barrettes to comb their hair, called them "my kids". In keeping with her New Mexican heritage, she always made tamales and empanadas on Christmas Eve, her home was the place to be to celebrate with extended family and friends. One of the greatest joys in her life were her grandchildren, especially having them over to play all day or spend the night. She sewed beautiful dresses for the little girls to wear on holidays, and used her artistic skills to paint fun characters on their shirts. She loved them dearly and the feeling was mutual. She also painted beautiful Nativity scenes for her family. The Flores family is grateful to the nursing staff at Stonegate Facility for their excellent care and compassion, some even known to join her in song; she loved to sing for anyone and everyone! Most importantly, we thank Jennifer, her companion/caregiver, for the loving care she gave Julie and the countless moments of joy. She was preceded in death by her sons, William (Billy) Flores in 1980 and Larry Flores in 2016. Survivors: daughters, Carolyn Ahlstrom and Connie Flores (Doug Tucker) from Seattle area; sons, Sam (Ceil), Tom, and Richard (Courtney) from Ft. Worth area; brother, Carl Guevara and sister, Viola Martinez from New Mexico; 9 grandchildren, Aron, Erika, Katy, Carrie, Shelby, Lauren, William, Bobby, and Pippa, and 4 great-grandchildren, Mara, Mats, Miles and Gabe.
