November 13, 2023

Julie Rebbeca Steltz of Sellersville, unexpectedly passed away on November 13, 2023 at the University of Pennsylvania Presbyterian Hospital in Philadelphia. Julie was 59 years young.

Born at Andrews Air Force Base in Prince George’s, Maryland, she was the daughter of William J. Steltz and the late Barbara J. Mitchell, where at the time of Julie’s birth her father was stationed in the United States Navy.

Julie was a long time resident of The Indian Creek Foundation in Sellersville where she enjoyed working at the organization’s group workshop doing piece work and other various duties for more than 30 years. When Julie was able, she enjoyed crafting, listening to music, dancing, helping out in the kitchen, going to the beach, swimming, riding her bike, various vacations, shopping at the local Dollar Store loading up one of her many huge purses with her latest finds, bossing around her many siblings and housemates but most of all Julie loved spending quality time with her family, her Indian Creek Family and her many friends. Julie was a very special soul and she will be dearly missed by all those who knew and loved her. Although we all miss her dearly, we know she is now free from all her earthly burdens and pain, fly high sweet girl until we are all together again.

Julie is survived by her father, William J. Steltz (Nancy),her  sisters: Jessica Barlow-Elsner (Herb), Jennifer Kaufinger (Greg) and Alyson Devlin (Brian), her brother, Jeremy Onori, as well as many nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews.
