It is with deepest sorrow that we share the devastating news of losing one of our Ascent family members, Julie Wright. Julie had been with us for almost 4 years as our Mortgage Specialist. She helped countless members with their home buying process, and made many friends along the way. Julie also served on the credit union’s Fun Committee and helped to plan events for employees and their families. The news of her unexpected passing has hit us hard, and she will be sorely missed by all of us. For anyone who has worked with Julie, please feel free to share your memories with us and we will pass them along to her family.

Julie’s Obituary

“Julie was one of the first people I met when I started at the credit union. She was always so willing to help me get started, give advice, and be there for any questions I had. I miss Julie and don’t think that feeling will ever go away. She was a special friend who cannot be replaced.”

“Julie always had a smile on her face. You would never know the struggles she had as she was always so happy and upbeat. She was never afraid to be silly and dance around. She was truly a fantastic presence around the office and she will be so missed.”

“Julie was always so nice and welcoming. When I was in a panic of getting my documents done, it was so nice to talk to Julie because she was always so calm and sweet. Julie was such a great example of how a co-worker should be and I will always remember her warm smile.”

“I looked up and saw your name in yellow on the ShoreTel directory list.
I smiled as I thought of you, my friend, forever you’ll be missed.
I didn’t get to say see you later or Godspeed, and I don’t believe in goodbye
So until we meet again, Jules, on that mountain go rest high.”

“Working on the mortgage team with Julie was a pleasure. Her smile had a way of lighting the room. She was so knowledgeable and reliable and loved by her clients. There has been a huge void in the mortgage department here at the credit union. She has been and will continue to be greatly missed. I feel it an honor to known her.”

“She was always so kind and thoughtful to our members and her coworkers. My heart goes out to her family at such a loss. She will definitely be missed.”

“One thing that sticks out in my mind about my friend Julie is the way she laughed so easily. She would throw her head back and just let it out. She was a confidant and a good listener. We sure enjoyed some good talks and good laughs. We even argued one time in a meeting in John’s office what we were going to call our thrift shop we planned to open when we retired and what we were going to sell there. Thanks for being a good friend Julie. We are all going to miss you so much!”
