Julie Lelone passed away Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2018 in Spokane, Wash.
She was born March 8, 1959. She attended school in Puyallup, Wash.
After residing in Inchelium, Wash., and Coulee Dam, Wash., "home" was found in Omak, Wash. (Disautel) because simple country living is what life was all about. Surrounded by all the animals (horses, dogs, cats, rabbits) you were never surprised to find out the pet names because it was usually a family member name. Julie treated all animals as children especially, Rueben, the horse that won numerous "King of the Hill" titles at Omak Stampede. Julie enjoyed Rueben's remaining years in their pasture in Disautel.
Together 28 years on July 11, 1998 Julie married the love of her life, Vern Lelone. Together the family grew to daughter's Stacey Peterson and Jamie Lelone and son's Joe Rosenbaum, Vernon Lelone and Michael Rulien.
Julie had the knack of crafting, creating and decorating things that Vern would build. Many family members are fortunate to have the bird houses, light up frames or reindeer that were made with love in every piece.
Additional family survivors are her parents, Ida and Andy Zayemopoulas; sisters, Janna Seymour, Joanna Seiber and Peggy Rogers; brothers, Mike Seiber, Fred Seiber, Ted Seiber, Michael Seiber and Jay Manasco; in addition to 11 grandchildren.
A "Celebration of Life" will be held in the spring 2019.
