A few words from one of the granddaughter’s: “I remember when my brothers and I, or just me, would stay the night with her; we would wake up, or she would wake us up how she always did, and ask what we wanted for breakfast. She always made the best breakfast. Days like that felt like home and I will never forget that feeling.”
Julia was preceded in death by her mother, La Juan Nance and a brother Ronnie Dalton Nance. Those left to cherish her many memories are her daughters, Anna Lisa Iturrino and Carmen Irene Iturrino, her father, Tom Nance of Brownwood, TX, a sister Deborah Woodlock of Lago Vista, TX, 2 brothers, Tom Nance, Jr of Brownfield and John David Nance of Fort Myers, FL.
