Juli married the love of her life, Darrell Price, on April 28, 2012, after a 16-year relationship. Together they enjoyed World War II and Vietnam re-enactments. Juli has represented the Women’s Nurses Corp (WWII), the Army Medical Corp (Vietnam) and dearest to her heart, the Red Cross Donut Dollies. She has made many lifelong friends while participating in these organizations and LOVED meeting Veterans and hearing their stories.
She and Darrell enjoyed many other activities together, including Georgian football, golf, riding pets in the countryside, and grilling. She loved watching murders and crime stories, reading, baking cupcakes and browsing flea markets with her girlfriends.
Juli pursued her passion through her employment at Glenwood Medical Center in labor and delivery. Her work family was exactly that for her…. a real family. She loved her job and cherished her colleagues even more.
Juli was predeceased by her father, Luther Gilbert; his maternal grandparents, Floyd and Artie Arnold; lots of treasured aunts and uncles and a very special pet, Georgia.
Survivors include her husband, Darrell Price; mother and stepfather, Shirley and Barney McCallister; brothers, Louie and Lloyd Gilbert; Uncles Dwight Arnold (Linda) and Terry Arnold (Kim); lots of cousins and her fur babies Merle, Sydney and Champ.
