Julie passed away Sunday, Sept. 9, 2007, at her home. She was born in St. Louis, Mo., on Oct. 7, 1944, to Eugene H. and Arleen H. Bacon. She graduated from Wasson High School in Colorado Springs, Colo., in 1961, and worked her entire life in accounting. The past 12 years she worked for Waldrop Construction in Brownwood.
Upon moving to Brownwood in 1983, Julie quickly became acquainted with Texas football. In 1984 she purchased season tickets for the Brownwood Lions games and she kept those same tickets all these years. In fact, you could probably count on one hand how many games she missed. She was passionate in her love for the Texas Longhorns, as well, which was evident by the UT sticker covered, burnt orange vehicle that she drove.
She had a love for animals that some might consider extreme, having stopped numerous times to untangle an animal from a fence or get a stray out of harms way. Her gentle nature and quick wit will be missed by many.
Julie is survived by two daughters, Karen Mosqueda and her husband Fernando of Brownwood, and Laurie Andres and her husband Tom of Dixon, Calif.; five grandchildren Marcus and Molly Mosqueda of Brownwood, and Chelsae, Rachel and Jake Andres of Dixon, Calif.; and an “adopted” sister, Alyce Mclean of Brownwood and many, many friends. Julie was preceded in death by her parents, Eugene and Arleen Bacon; a sister, Sue Bacon; husband, Dick Troyer; an infant son; and her best friend Betty Morris.
Donations can be made to the youth fund at St. Mary’s Catholic Church of Brownwood, or to a charity of your choice.
