Ms. Julia Cammon was born September 17, 1944 to the late Ms. Frances W. Hudson, and the late Mr. James Cammon in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

During her stay in Chattanooga, she worshiped with her family at Stanley United Methodist Church, and there she gave her life to Christ.  Julia was a faithful member until she moved to Atlanta, Georgia, and joined Cascade United Methodist. Julia served both her family and church faithfully. She worked diligently in her church in whatever position, capacity, or area she was needed, and served on, and with, various boards and ministries.

Julia received her elementary and high school education in Chattanooga.  She attended Clark College in Atlanta, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Education in 1966. She became a certified teacher. In addition to being an educator, Julia was also employed as an instructional coach, and a counselor in several Atlanta Public Schools. She furthered her education to receive a Master Degree in 1969 from Atlanta University. Julia was a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated, pledging under the Clark College chapter. She was a member of the Clark Atlanta University Alumni Association, and the Clark Atlanta Booster Club.

Julia was employed by Atlanta Public School for many years before retiring, including John Fitzgerald Kennedy Middle School, and Samuel Howard Archer and Booker T. Washington High Schools. She was a loyal and dedicated educator committed to excelling at all times, and making a difference in the lives of the students she educated and counseled. Julia was well-liked and thought of by her friends and co-workers.  She was known for her willingness to lend a helping hand to anyone, anytime. She has touched the lives of many through the schools, and churches, she attended at various times in her life. She was the knowledgeable person for directions and information.

Julia enjoyed traveling, and did so often.  Her final travel was to Torrance, California to participate in, and be witness to the marriage of her goddaughter, Shuntoria (Mrs. Johnathan Plater). From there, she traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada to further enjoy the blessings that God had given to her.  

On Wednesday, September 12, 2018, Julia departed her life and went home to be with the Lord. She leaves to cherish her love and memories to: her cousins – Ms. Vanessa Robbs of Chattanooga, and Mr. and Mrs. William (Doris) Frazier of Raleigh, North Carolina; an adopted daughter - Mrs. Rosalyn Reid-Thomas (Louis) of Torrance, California; two goddaughters –Mrs. Shuntoria (Johnathan) Plater of Torrance, and Mrs. Joyce (Ron) Coar of Atlanta; and devoted friends – Dr. Isabella Jenkins and Mr. Lowell Dickerson both of Atlanta, and a host of other relatives and friends.
