Julie Clewett died on Saturday 20th April. The ultimate cause was Sepsis, resulting
from an infected surgical wound following an operation on her spine. The underlying
issue was discovered to be secondary bone cancer – so in a way, the Sepsis saved
Julie from a very painful and distressing last few months of a shortened life.

Julie was born in Meriden and grew up in Coventry. After leaving school she worked
in the Architects Department at Coventry City Council where she met Tony. They
married in June 1970 and moved to Nether Heyford in July 1977. Julie was very
well-known in the village and was an active member of the community here, having
been ‘Little Owl’ at Brownies for over 20 years, a member of the Village Hall
Management and Fete committees, the Picturedrome Committee and a keen
member of the Crafty Club, Pilates Club, Heyford Amblers and Heyford Garden
Club. Anyone who met Julie will know how she was always cheerful and friendly and
had a wonderful sense of humour. What is difficult to believe is just how quickly
someone who was outwardly healthy, fit and active was brought down within just
two months of being seen for a ‘bad back’.

She will be very much missed as ‘Mum’ to Ian, Chris and Becky, ‘Grandma’ to
Olivia, Felix, Ellie, Erin, Owen and little baby Harriet and wife and best friend to
Tony. As her close friend said, “they won’t make another one like Julie”. RIP
