Julie Tripp

Age 48 of Nowthen.

Passed away June 2nd, 2020 after a long battle with breast cancer.

After graduating from Houston High School and Winona State College, Julie began a long career as an educator. She had a drive to help children learn, which lead to a master’s degree from St. Kates. Her passion for working in education lead her to many places, teaching at Blaine High School, Brooklyn Center, Coon Rapids, and many others. When not in the classroom, Julie was deeply involved in sports. She loved watching her kids play, and even coached basketball, volleyball, and softball. A doting mother, she cherished spending time with her children most of all.

Julie was preceded in death by her father, Jim; and grandmother, Irene Kelley.

She is survived by her loving husband of 17 years, Aaron Barr; children, Brody and Bree; mother, Colletta; siblings, Sandi, Jim Jr., Mike, and Mark; and loving aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, family, and friends. A public celebration of life will be held at Lord of Life Church in Ramsey, MN. In lieu of flowers, donations preferred to the breast cancer charity of the donor’s choice.

A private family service will be held at Dare’s Funeral and Cremation Services;  the service can be streamed Tuesday, 6/9, 3:00 PM. Streaming details below
