She worked at Champlain Spinners and the adjacent Silk Mills in Whitehall, NY until she married her sweetheart George Bly, Jr. from Kent, Ohio on July 1, 1950. They moved to Meadville where George started his business, Bly Drywall and Plastering, which is still run by his son, George Bly, III, today. They raised 8 children.

She worked as a nurse’s aide at Wesbury for 8 years and the Crawford County Career & Technical Center for a few years until her retirement.

Julia was a very devoted member of St. Agatha Parish for many years. In that time, she was a member of their Altar and Rosary group as well as serving as a Eucharistic Minister.

George, Cathy, Mark, Regina, and the entire Bly family, You have my deepest sympathy at the loss of your Mom and Grandma. I have many fond memories of Julia throughout my high school years and beyond, as I enjoyed the company of my dear friend, your sister and mom, Lynne Bly. Julia will be remembered as being kind and gracious with a sense of humor. May all the special memories you hold of Julia give you strength as you press through this difficult time. Love and prayers .
