Julia McClaran

Julia Iola Golden McClaran, 56, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday, October 8, 2017.

Born in Fort Bragg, NC, she was a daughter of Imogene Merck Golden Head of Central and the late, Foyle "Pete" Golden. She graduated from Daniel High School, received a bachelor of science degree from Bob Jones University and an associates degree in nursing from Greenville Technical College. After working as a professional cake baker, she began her career as a registered nurse. She enjoyed continuing her baking skills for all her friends and co-workers at Jervey Eye Group. When she wasn't working she enjoyed exercising, outdoor activities and spending time with her friends and family. To her six grandchildren she was known as Grandma Julie and she loved making memories with them. One of her greatest joys in life was being a mom to her four children.

Her life exemplified the love and kindness of Jesus to all who knew her. She often stated how blessed she was for all God had done for her. She will be remembered for her sweet spirit and beautiful smile.
