Julie Ann Woods, 56, of Sycamore Street, died at 7:52 a.m. May 17, 2018, at Our Hospice of South Central Indiana Inpatient Facility.
Julie was born March 4, 1962, in Scottsburg, the daughter of Vernon and Barbara Ann Stearns Plessinger.

Julie loved being a “mom,” grandma and a best friend to all who knew her.
She loved fishing, boating, skiing, the beach, gardening and flowers.
Even while battling cancer, Julie remained brave, thoughtful, and caring — thinking of others first and showing her friends and family how to live through trials with dignity and grace, all with a “big beautiful smile.”
Friends may celebrate with the family from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, May 20, 2018, at Jewell-Rittman Family Funeral Home in Columbus.
