She attended some of the finest San Francisco schools, graduating from Wilkins Private High School and attended San Jose State University. In 1972, she married Jim Graziani and together they built a life that was full of love, laughter and elegance, rich with friends and family. She thrived as a real estate professional that included 25 years with West Coast Properties. Jim and Julie retired 19 years ago to the Silverado Country Club, living their dream in the Wine Country, where they enjoyed golf, wine, and dear friends. Her children and grandchildren remember her as a loving, supportive person with a true and honest spirit. All will remember her striking blue eyes; her elegant grace will live on through all who knew her. A special thank you from the family to Collabria Hospice of Napa, and to Evelyn Duckett for her loving attention to Julie in her final days.
