We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at St. Stephens Funeral Home, LLC.
Julie Yocum passed away at home Sunday, July 10, 2022, a few short months after a late diagnosis of liver disease. She was born to James L. and Joyce Yocum at Kindley Air Force Base in Bermuda on April 22, 1960 and lived in Howardtown, Alabama for much of her life. Growing up, her family traveled frequently for her father's military career and she attended 13 schools before enrolling at University of South Alabama. She was the founder of The Helping Hands and worked with the postal service for several years. She was well known for her intellectual nature and her interest in many crafts and hobbies, from crochet to gardening to stained glass and many more. She was always working on a project. She also had a deep love for animals, leaving behind a dog and three cats. She was known to many as a mentor and was always willing to lend an ear when anyone had a problem.
Julie was preceded in death by her father; her brother, James L. Yocum, Jr.; and recently her nephew, Christopher Yocum. She leaves behind her mother, Joyce Yocum; her child, Morgana (Elyse) Yocum; her niece and nephew; many great-nieces and nephews; more treasured cousins than can be listed here; and several very special friends.
There will be a memorial service at Tibbie Baptist Church Tuesday, July 19th. Visitation will be at 11 a.m. and service at noon. The family asks that attendees wear masks. Brother Woody Baughn will be officiating.
