On October 31, 2020 Julia Barbin Coleman of (Lucy) Edgard, LA peacefully entered into eternal rest at the age of 80, while living with her daughter Regina in Ford Heights, IL. She was under the care of her daughter and Elara Care Hospice.

Julia mostly enjoyed spending time with her great-grandchildren, as they enjoyed eating frozen grapes together. In addition, she liked sewing, ceramic arts, working in the yard, cooking, baking and bingo.
