Spainhour and Bobby Spainhour.  She is survived by her two daughters, Jenifer Lynn Peeden and husband, Mike and Allison B. Hart and loving partner, Brian de Lyon; one grandson, Dalton Gray Messer; and two great grandchildren, Jase Stover and Jackson Stover.  A service to celebrate Julia’s life will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, January 7, 2023, at Fries Memorial Moravian Church with Rev. Dr. Worth Green officiating.  A private interment will follow at Salem Moravian Graveyard.  The family will receive friends from 5:00 pm until 7:00 pm on Friday, January 6, 2023, at Hayworth-Miller Silas Creek Chapel.  The family would like to extend their sincere gratitude to the staff of Village Care of King for the compassionate care they provided to Julia.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials be made to Crisis Control Ministry, 200 10th St. E, Winston-Salem, NC 27101;
