Julia Y. “Julie” Harrison, age 56, of Wilmington, DE, passed away on Monday, April 10, 2023.
Born in Wilmington, DE on May 10, 1966, she was a daughter of the late Julio Soto and Pauline (Miller) Harrison. Julie worked for W.L. Gore & Associates and resided for many years in Flagstaff, AZ before returning home to New Castle, DE to be with family. She was an extremely hard worker but always put her family first. Julie would always say how beautiful it was in Arizona, the last place she lived while in the mountains of Flagstaff was truly remarkable. When it was night time the stars felt so close that you could touch them.
Julie loved to challenge herself to a word search puzzle or read in her spare time. She also enjoyed watching the Hallmark Channel. Most of all, Julie cherished the memories she made with her beloved grandchildren.
In addition to her parents, Julie was preceded in death by her sisters, Elaine Perdue and Linda Harrison; and niece, Maria Maldonado. She is survived by her son, David Harrison (Amanda); grandchildren, Desireé, Marcus, and Trey; siblings, Jerry Harrison (Sandra), Paula Smallwood (Steve), Victor Stone, Julio Soto, and Tammy Brown (Fred); numerous nieces and nephews including Dajah Brown, Zyaire Brown, Jahsir Maxwell, JaVius Maxwell, Steven Beltran, Michele Dailey, Denice Perry (Adam), Jordon Dailey, Josh Dailey, Kylie Beltran, Shanna Beltran, Zach Perry and Spencer Perry; and cousin, Papo Beltran (Ricky).
