Julia Marie Yesner Bragan
Julia Marie Yesner Bragan, a loving, kind and multi-talented human being, left this Earth on Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2019. She is now free of the pain and fear she experienced these last six-plus years with Alzheimer’s disease. All the dogs in heaven are receiving dog treats from her whenever they want one; unfinished craft projects are completed; and there’s a good supply of ice cream in the freezer to enjoy in the evening.
Julia is survived by her sister, Jan Wachsmuth (David); niece, Donna Schopp (Doug); nephew, Mike Wachsmuth; grandniece, Julia Henegar and grandnephew, Andrew Henegar, all of Eagle River, Alaska. Julia is also remembered by her beloved friends, Mattie Good of Luray, Va., Vivian Kay of New York, N.Y., and stepdaughter, Catherine Bragan and her children of Catlett, Va. She was preceded in death by her husband, Odell A. Bragan.
