Julianne Marie Andrews

December 13, 1959 — November 23, 2023

Julianne Marie Andrews, born on December 13,, 1959, in Pomona, California, to Robert Derk Andrews and June Julian Snyder. Julie has been a resident of Weber County for the past 25 years. She is the wife of David Searcy, mother to Matthew Church, Candice, Jason, and Janina Sargeant, and stepmother to many more. Nana to Heather, Matthew, Jilian, Scarlett, Wiley, and Memphis. Great-Grandmother “Nana” to Alice and Henry. Sister to Larry and Tony Andrews.

 

Julianne passed away on Thanksgiving Day November 23, 2023, at the age of 63, after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer just one month prior. She passed away peacefully surrounded by family. Her passing was quick, painless, and dignified.

 

Julie spent her life taking care of others, from children and grandchildren to in-laws and friends. She was always there to help others at a moment’s notice. She led by example; Julie was a good friend and mentor to everyone without ever trying. Always choosing to do the right thing and be the bigger person in all situations. She often pointed out the good in everyone she knew. She was funny...with an unforgettable laugh that couldn't help but fill a room with joy. Julie was truly beloved by her community a dear friend to many. The best mother and nana in the world.

 

For those who sought our mom/nana they knew that if she wasn't in the garden, she could be found by the river with a big pile of rocks in her bucket or at savers going up and down the aisles until she'd seen absolutely everything in the store. It was always difficult to find her when it was time to leave because she was short in stature and couldn't be spotted over all the racks of clothing.  If she wasn't at any of those places, you could probably find her just at home. Where she would most likely be kneeling on the ground, as she always did, scribbling into a notebook. Julie was creative and was always thinking about the next big event she could craft for. She rarely showed up for a visit without a gift in hand, whether it be something she had handmade just for you or a treasure from her latest thrift store haul. She was always looking for an opportunity to leave her mark or make a person feel loved. If you knew our nana, you loved her.

 

You could tell when she was getting tired because she would start to mumble some of the craziest things. She often joked, when we teased her, that we'd "miss her when she was gone". How right she was.

 

If you were to ask about her greatest accomplishments, she would undoubtedly mention her children and grandchildren. She was immensely proud of the next generations and valued family above all else.

 

Julianne was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She spent her life a faithful servant of God and couldn't wait to reunite with him someday; finally learning of all the glorious wonders of heaven.

 

Julie was preceded in death by one daughter, Janina Lane; her father, Robert Andrews; great-grandparents; and many dear friends.

 

She wishes that her ashes be returned to her family in Pomona, California, where she will be placed with her grandmother whom she adored; and often spoke of reuniting with in heaven.

A heart of gold stopped beating

Working hands at rest

God broke our hearts to prove to us

He only takes the best

Leaves and flowers may wither

The golden sun may set

But the hearts that loved you dearly

Are the ones that won’t forget.
