Julie Kohlscheen Woodliff

Julie Ann Kohlscheen Woodliff, 46, of Hewitt, passed away peacefully at her residence and went to rest in the arms of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Wednesday, October 31, 2018.

Visitation: 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, November 6, at Lake Shore Funeral Home.

Celebration of Life Memorial Service: All are invited to attend at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, November 10, at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Crawford.

She was born the daughter of Joan and Russel Kohlscheen in Kearney, Nebraska the 28th of December 1971. Julie lived her childhood years in Kearney and later moved to the Waco area with her family. She spent time living in California after her college graduation and made it home to Texas to raise her own family.

She was a beautiful woman devoted to her family and faith. She was a loving mother who took great pride in her three children Sarina, Jacen and Wytten. She cherished the special moments spent with each of them.

Julie was a lifelong member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and spent many years serving its youth through camping ministries. She was a current member of St Paul’s Lutheran Church in Crawford. Julie was a graduate of Texas Lutheran University and Midway High School.

Julie was a woman of faith that carried a spark that could be seen the moment you met her. She was always kind and helpful to those around her. She never knew a stranger. She was trusting and loyal and an instant friend if you had the opportunity to meet her. She was very well liked by her work associates and by her many customers at Starbucks.

She had a laugh and a smile that were absolutely infectious. She was the person who lit the room up when she walked in. She was the girl who did take time to dance in the rain. She savored life and those she shared it with.

Julie was preceded in death by her mother, Joan Kohlscheen.

Julie is survived by her three children, Sarina Guerra, Jacen Guerra and Wytten Woodliff of Hewitt; her father, Russel Kohlscheen of Hewitt; brother and sister-in-law, Bob and Jodi Kohlscheen; niece, Joani Kohlscheen; nephew, Seth Kohlscheen of Crawford; special friend, Roy Mettlen and son, Will Mettlen of Hewitt; along with numerous extended family and friends.

    So very sorry to hear of Julie’s passing. We were classmates at Midway and I remember Julie’s smile and how infectious it was. We of course know she is in a better place smiling down on all she loves, but that does not erase the pain and grief of your missing her and the loss of future memories made with her. But hold tight to the Lord and the knowledge that through Him all things are possible and find in Him peace and comfort in knowing that one day you will all be reunited in HIS home! Bless you all during this difficult time and bless Julie for the gift that she was on Earth!

    Dear ones,

    I was so shocked to see that Julie had died. She was such a sweet young woman and always had such a great sense of humor. It was a joy to be your family’s pastor from 1988-1995.

    My prayers are with you all as you grieve, but not as those without hope.

    Rest eternal grant Julie, O Lord, and let Light perpetual shine upon her. Amen.


  13. I want to express my sincere sympathy to the family and share some comfort and hope from God’s word. In it he promises to bring our loved ones back to life in a perfect world where there will be no more suffering or death. (Acts 24:15; John 5:28, 29; Revelation 21:4; Isaiah 25:8) Until that time comes, Jehovah God assures us at Psalm 34:18 that he “is close to the brokenhearted” and “He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” So he understands your pain and grief and is eager to help you by giving you the strength you need to cope during this most difficult time. (Philippians 4:13)

  14. Julie’s California friends are sending love and prayers from afar and many blessings to all she loved. Special prayers to her children and family. Much love to you Julie…please keep an eye on us from above!
    The Heck/Caldin Family…Chris, Carol, Sterling, Storme and Taegen (Tigger)

  15. May the peace of the Lord fill your hearts during this time. Your family is in my prayers.

  16. To the Kohlsheen/Woodliff Family, Please accept my sincerest condolences for your loss of your Mother, daughter, sister, Sister-law. It is so hard to loose a family member especially at the young age of 46. Please remember that we are promised by Jesus that we will have an opportunity to see our loved ones again here on earth. John 5:28+29 gives us such a wonderful hope, please read it for yourself and be encouraged as I was when I lost my Dad.
