Julia Ann Bohl, age 63, of Carmel, IN passed away unexpectedly on December 26th, 2020 after a tragic fall. She was born in June of 1957 in Vancouver, Washington to Max and Leona Morgan.
Above all things, Julie loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She unconditionally loved her husband, children, and grandchildren. Being a mother and grandmother brought her such joy. She also loved to run and did so frequently with her dog at her side. She enjoyed the beach (yes, she enthusiastically escaped Indiana weather) and being out in the sunshine. She had a passion for gardening and antiquing. Julie prided herself on being active and was such an example of discipline and motivation. She exemplified health despite her secret snack drawer at her desk.
Along with her hobbies, Julie was a nurse for over 40 years. If you knew Julie, it was evident that this was a calling from the Lord. She thrived in stressful moments that only those in healthcare experience so frequently. She went to great lengths for her patients as a dedicated nurse at the St. Vincent Heart Hospital as well as numerous other hospitals throughout her career. Her passion was caring for others and being present. Part of her gift with her patients was her ability to listen, empathize, and bring steadfast comfort.
Julie had an uncanny, exponential effect on people. She had a way with strangers that was incredible to watch. She had the ability to make people feel loved and appreciated even moments after meeting them. She could make anyone laugh with her quick wit, sarcasm, and charming personality. It was a true gift not only to be used in her craft as a talented nurse, but as a person. She had an incredible impact on people’s lives. She was forever the mother-figure to all those that crossed her path.
Even in her death, she donated her organs to continue her life saving work.
In faithfully serving the Lord, Julie attended College Park Church and relished in the Sunday morning services while sitting with her family.
Julie is survived by her husband Scott Bohl, her children Nathan (Julie) Shields, Alexa Shields (Alex Gregorek), and Aaron (Sarah) Shields, and three grandchildren - Ava, Greyson, and Sloane Shields; Her siblings Dan (Liz) Morgan, Sarah (Hubert) Harriman, Mary (Dennis) Norling, and Jonathan (Charma) Morgan.
