"When Julie comes around and sings her happy song of summer, and
lifts my spirits up and fills my foolish mind with wonder."
"When Julie Comes Around" The Cuff Links 1969. The party that
was the life of Julie Gareff McCandlish ended abruptly and without warning
July 26, 2013. The first of three daughters to George and Joan Gareff who
preceded Julie in death, Julie was the organizer, planner and instigator
of parties and events for family and friends. She was at her finest on
holidays, especially the UA 4th of July and Christmas. Julie is survived

DeWeese (Kevin) of Austin, TX, Courtney Simmons (Justin) of Worthington;
and her son, Kyle of Upper Arlington; sister, Jennifer "Boo"
Milligan (Mike) and Amy Adams (Colin) all of Columbus. She also leaves
with great love her grandson, Jackson and soon to arrive granddaughter,
Rylie and grandson, Cooper. She will also be missed by her lifelong and
devoted friends from school and summers at camp Akita along with family
and friends who had the pleasure of having Julie be a part of their lives.
