Obituary: Julia Ann Hobbs

Julia Ann Hobbs 1939 ~ 2005 Julie Ann Hobbs, 66, passed away peacefully at her home on September 20, 2005, in Salt Lake City. She was born in Franklin, Idaho, on May 10, 1939, to Donald P and Julia Johnson Hobbs. She taught first graders, who loved her very much. Julia taught in Hawaii for three years, and in Salt Lake until she retired. Her love of history led to her traveling many parts of the U.S. and Europe. Auntie Ann, as she was affectionately known by her many nieces and nephews, loved nature, horses, baby pigs, and people. Julia's love of all kinds of books was evident by the size of her personal library. She was called to work in the Salt Lake Temple until cancer took over her body. She is survived by her sisters Joyclyn (Hal) Fisher, Smithfield, UT; Patricia (Wendall) Gardner, Amarillo, TX; a brother Clint (Jean) Hobbs, Salmon, ID and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, two brothers, Donald J. Hobbs and Jerald George Hobbs. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 am on Friday, September 23, 2005 at the Monument Park 11th Ward, 1565 So. Foothill Dr. Friends and family may call Thursday evening from 7-9 p.m. at Larkin Sunset Lawn Mortuary, 2350 East 1300 South, and from 9:30-10:40 prior to the service at the ward. Interment will be in the Franklin, Idaho City Cemetery at around 3:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations be made to the Huntsman Cancer Center or Rocky Mountain Hospice.
