Julia Mae Heringer, age 57, of Edmond, Okla., passed away into God’s Heavenly Realm on Tuesday, December 1, 2015 after her 20-month battle with pancreatic cancer. She was born July 28, 1958 to the late Charles Elmer Winton and Jewel Mae Denson. She grew up in Oklahoma City with her five sisters. She married Ed Heringer Nov. 11, 1982. She and Ed raised their two daughters in Edmond, Okla. Family and friends were Julia’s passion and delight. She loved working outdoors in her garden, camping, hiking, fishing, and shopping. She also enjoyed crafting...especially when she was giving her project to the ones she loved. Julia never met a stranger and always jumped at the opportunity to make a new friend. She was always happy and was known for making people feel like family. Later in life, her favorite activities included spending time with her grandchildren. She absolutely adored her grandchildren. She never missed an opportunity to watch them play sports and to spend time with them. Julia worked for Reid Printing in Edmond for 25 years. She enjoyed going to work each day and loved the friendships she made with her coworkers...especially LaVerna Reid. Julia was preceded in death by her parents, and sisters Lillie Katherine Ives, Terry Delia Hill, and Rita Voncile Brennan. She is mourned by her husband, Ed Heringer; daughters, Corey Ann Hawker and her husband Jason Hawker and Ginger Adele Trotter and her husband Clay Trotter; her five grandchildren; Alexa, Ethan, and Madeline Trotter; and Conner and Morgan Hawker; her sister, Pam Snead (Ron); her twin sister, JoAnn Hennessey (James); and 11 nieces and nephews. Services were Friday, December 4, at Matthews Funeral Home, Edmond, with burial immediately following at Rose Hill Cemetery, Oklahoma City. Julia’s family would like to extend sincere appreciation to all of the wonderful physicians and nurses at Stephenson Cancer Center and OU Medical Center for the compassionate care she received during her illness, including Dr. Russell Postier and Dr. Shubham Pant. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research.
