Services will be Saturday for Julia Ann (Herman) Sturtevant, 56, a Tracy resident for 27 years. She died early Sunday at her home after a nine-month battle with cancer.

Mrs. Sturtevant was born Aug. 28, 1957, in Allentown, Pa., and moved to Livermore with her family when she was 10 years old. She graduated from Granada High School and received a Bachelor of Science degree in health science from California State University, Chico, in 1979. She and her husband were married three years later, in June 1982.

Mrs. Sturtevant was a deacon at the First Presbyterian Church of Tracy and was presented with an honorary life membership by Presbyterian Women of (PC)USA in January. She also volunteered at her children’s schools and in the community.

Survivors include her husband, Allen Paul Sturtevant of Tracy; three children, Jeannine Sturtevant of North Hollywood, Lindsay Sturtevant of Eureka and Phillip Sturtevant of Los Angeles; and her parents, Paul and Dolores Herman of Livermore.

A public memorial service will begin at 1 p.m. Saturday at the First Presbyterian Church of Tracy, 101 Berverdor Ave. After the service, a gathering will be held in Grant Hall.

Contributions in Mrs. Sturtevant’s name, in lieu of flowers, may be sent to the First Presbyterian Church of Tracy, 101 Berverdor Ave., Tracy, CA 95376.

How can you put a lifetime of love, spunk, concern for others needs, devotion to family AND friends following Christ's example ...into a few words? Her smile says it all! I only had to been in her presence...hear her laugh...or receive a call or message from her...to know she was my friend with angelic qualities.

Julia was a gift to me and our entire family. My life was not only blessed by her presence...but she will continue to be an example of the way to live and serve and enrich the lives of those who were fortunate to be in her company.

God has welcomed an angel Home.
