Juli May Troendle was born on October 31st, 1958 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa to Mike and Joan Troendle. She graduated from Washington High School in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in 1977. July worked many jobs when she was younger, including being the first female paper delivery girl in Cedar Rapids history and in High School a baker at Donut Land. She went on to get a 2 year degree in Interior Design at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She married Chris Reed on May 17th, 1980 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa the day before Mt. Saint Helens blew in Washington State, we had no idea at that time that event was happening. Before moving to Washington State, Juli gave birth to her first child, Brittany. Within 2 years Chris received an offer from Boeing and we moved to South Hill Puyallup, WA in 1989, with Juli pregnant with our second child Tyler. Juli worked hard at maintaining the home and kids while Chris worked. Juli would work off and on during this time to make extra money, she was a very had worker and very dedicated to her family and friends. In 1994 Chris had an opportunity with a company in Mukilteo, WA north of Seattle, so a move was planned and Juli was now pregnant with our third child Danielle. Juli was very dedicated to her children making sure they had everything they needed to be successful, including lots of love an attention. Over the next many years she would volunteer at the elementary school where all thee kids went to school, just 3 blocks away from our house and a ten year role as Community Kitchen Leader for our church, where she also volunteered with many other activities through out the year As the kids got older Juli started working for a business right next to Chris’s business called Tubs To Go, where she did sales and order taking for the business. As the kids were growing up now and becoming adults, July noticed some odd physical challenges. She often would not bother anyone with her concerns, but in 2014 when things started getting worse she decided it wasn’t just the aging process and we started the long tedious process of determining what was going on. After endless road blocks of tests and more tests in the NW, we decided she should go see the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN where they specialize is neurological diseases, which also included a road trip with her older sister Kim and a visit to her younger Sister Traci in Nebraska. In the Fall of 2014 we received the report that Juli had MSA, Multiple System Atrophy, we all were devastated. As her condition started to progress in 2014, she retired from Tubs To Go at the end of the year. Juli’s condition was progressive and continued to progress, but through it all she was amazing. With this progression came more care and with resources dwindling, in the fall of 2020 she was approved for an AFH, Adult Family Home in Lynwood, Wa, Dedicated AFH. What an amazing place for Juli, they took such good care of her and you can tell they turely loved her and how amazing she was. Through all of this July has always stayed positive, smiled, laughed, never making anyone one feel unloved or unappreciated. Juli will be greatly missed by all, she truly made this world a better place. The whole family would like to truly thank all the friends and volunteers who supported Juli during this extremely difficult time, your care, contributions, and visits to Juli will not be forgotten. A Celebration of Life is scheduled for Saturday July 2nd, 2022 at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 5511 64th Street SE, Snohomish, WA 98290 at 10am, with a reception to follow at the church. Pastor Bob Sinclair and Karen Reed will officiate the ceremony. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Juli Reed’s life. The whole family would like to thank everyone again who helped, contributed, and supported Juli and her care through all of these years especially Evergreen Hospice and Dedicated Adult Family Home.
