Julie A. Bradley, age 60, of Ingraham, Illinois, passed away Friday, November 9, 2018, at her home.
She was born March 12, 1958, in Champaign, the daughter of the William E. and Gertrude (Akers) Bradley. After William passed away, Gertrude later married Lloyd Dale Fulk, and he became an important part of Julie’s life at age 4, raising her as his daughter.
