Julie Celeste Cassels
April 27, 1974 - November 3, 2021
Julie Celeste Cassels, age 47, of Newark, DE, formerly of Minden, LA, Corpus Christi, and Epsom, NH, passed away on Wednesday, November 3, 2021.
Born in Baton Rouge, LA on April 27, 1974, she was a daughter of Julius L. Cassels and the late Sara Jane (Addison) Cassels.
Many knew Julie only through the lens of the addictions she battled for years and the resulting side effects it had on her life. Drugs took her down a path that she never fully recovered from. It robbed her of some of her sanity and eventually her life. That wasn’t the real Julie though, and those fortunate enough to truly know her recognized that she was a special person. Julie graduated from the University of Delaware. She was a brave, fearless, and beautiful young lady. She was very passionate in what she believed in, and she touched the lives of every person she met. Julie loved children and animals, plants and gardening, she loved to sing and write, and she was a wonderfully expressive artist. She lived a life that was uniquely her own. She was misunderstood by some, but loved by so many more. Memories of the beautiful little blonde girl with a mischievous smile will always be in our hearts and minds.
In addition to her father, Julie is survived by her brothers, Justin Cassels of Boulder, CO and Oliver Cassels of Ogden, UT; and aunts and uncles, Johnny and Sandy Addison, Jean and Johnny Allison, Jackie Ashley, Hilda Poche, and Janet Hughes.
All services will be held privately.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Julie’s memory to Adult and Teen Challenge, PO Box 249, Ozark, MO 65721, or online by clicking here.
We love and will miss you, Julie. Our daughter, sister and friend.

Julius heartfelt with emotions as I read this about your daughter’s lifepath! The verse that gives me insight into life happenings with an answer I needed and live by today came from Billy Graham
1 Corinthians 13:12. Today we know in part, then we shall know fully! Give some thought to this verse as you feel your heart’s emotions in ways only known to you! Thank you for sharing this with me!
I met Julie once at Lums Pond in 1993 and she made such an impression on me that I thought of her yesterday and wondered what she’s up to. I had the pleasure of meeting her before the trials and tribulations mentioned in the obituary. She was an adorable, friendly, sweet girl who radiated positive energy. I’m sorry to hear about her struggles but we can be sure she is in a good place.
