Julie (Julia) O'Brien, daughter of William "Bill" and Janette O'Brien, passed away in the early morning hours on August 24, 2021 after a valiant battle with COVID pneumonia.
She has two surviving adopted children, Nathan (Angel) Gabriel O'Brien age 19, and ShayLa Elizabeth O'Brien, age 17. Julie also had two younger siblings, Jeralyn Dee O'Brien from OR and John Joseph O'Brien from OK.
Julie loved so many things, first and foremost was her love for Jesus! Her favorite bible verse was Isiah 12:2. Julie loved kids, and loved coaching. She was very creative, and she loved to watch cheerleading videos! She enjoyed taking her kids to the movies and traveling. She so much enjoyed her pets and would adopt 100 animals if she could!
Using her extensive knowledge and experience as a high level gymnast, Julie was instrumental in shaping the All Star Cheerleading community by bringing the two sports together, starting with her own gym, Charlotte Allstar Gymnastics & Cheerleading.
