Obituary for Julie Yvonne Garrison
Julie Yvonne (Judy) Garrison, 59, of Alachua, Florida, passed away on Friday, June 11, 2021 with her children by her side. She was born on July 4, 1961 to Betty Jean Garrison of Alachua, FL and the late Nathaniel Latson of Newberry, FL. Judy, as most knew her, was known for just being a good person and a hard worker. She was a graduate of Santa Fe High School, Class of 1980. She enjoyed cooking, spent 30+ years working at Sonny's of Alachua, and made the best baked macaroni & cheese. If you know, you know! After retiring in 2016, she spent her days getting the much-needed break she deserved until she developed a rare cancer in 2019. She would spend two years fighting until the Lord saw fit to end her pain and suffering.

She is preceded in death by her two grandchildren, Soren Edward and Emelia Louise Foster; her father; stepmother, Lola Mae Latson; sister, Rosa Howell; and brother James Carl (Ben) Richardson.
