On July 27, 2022, Julie Rae Rogers Pierce passed away at home with her devoted husband Charlie at her side. She was also surrounded by her children and siblings. Even to the end, her spirit was stronger than her affliction.
Julie was an incredibly warm person who touched countless lives with her innate ability to listen and love without judgment or reservation. She was an authentic person who always took a genuine interest in others, often putting their needs before her own.
Julie was born in Sioux City, Iowa and grew up in Salt Lake City where she attended Skyline High School. After high school she served an LDS mission in England which further strengthened her testimony, which would sustain her throughout her life.
As an adult she returned to college to become a schoolteacher so that her schedule aligned with her children’s. After graduating from Weber State, she became a junior high English teacher where she was a favorite of her students. Julie loved sharing her fondness for literature.
In 1997 she married the love of her life, Charlie Pierce. They enjoyed many happy years together in Kaysville, where their home was a popular spot for friends and family alike.
Julie held strong to her Mormon faith as she spent much of her adult life coping with the effects of progressive multiple sclerosis. In recent years she dedicated herself to scripture study. You could reliably find her with her iPad, immersing herself in the Book of Mormon and Come Follow Me. The teacher was also a student.
As Grandma Julie, Mama JuJu, and JuJu, she was adored by her grandchildren. Her record of remembering birthdays and special occasions was nothing short of impeccable. Her Amazon packages were always on-time and contained something thoughtful.
Julie Rae Rogers Pierce loved others wholeheartedly, and we all loved her dearly. She will be truly missed.
She was preceded in death by Douglas Rogers (father), Dolores Niedert Rogers (mother), Audrey Rogers (stepmom), and Gale Bailey (brother-in-law).
She is survived by her five siblings Leslie (Reg), Grant (Cindy), Jane, Caroline (Vic) and Kent (Karla). Included is a large circle of nieces and nephews who shared mutual adoration.
She is also survived by her two children Judd (Bobbie), Ali (Craig) and two stepchildren Mike (Cathy) and Aaron (Kellie), and by her eleven grandkids and one great-grandchild.
Last but not least, she is survived by her loving husband and caretaker, Charlie Quentin Pierce.
A celebration of her life was held on Saturday, July 30th at Russon Mortuary, 1941 N. Main Street, Farmington, UT, 84025.
