She is survived by her husband Randall Lipson, sons Skylar (Ashley) and Spencer (Kathleen), five grandchildren: Harper, Audrey, Lilyana, Maddox, and Leland. Her mom, Joyce Sawin Schroeder lives in Emerson Iowa near her sister Michelle and her family. Her brother Jeff resides with his family near Chicago.

Julie grew up all over Western Iowa where she started her cosmetology career in Shenandoah Iowa. She met her husband Randall there, and had her three boys in Shenandoah. Upon accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior at an Amway meeting, they moved to Clarinda Iowa where Julie homeschooled her boys and enjoyed her calling as a stay at home mom and wife. Randall continued his career in the media business in Clarinda.
After a victorious battle with Hodgkin’s, Randall accepted God’s call to be director of Timber Lakes Camp and Retreat Center just SW of Kansas City. Julie served wholeheartedly alongside Randall as help mate, food service director & cook, and hospitality manager.
After their 20 years of faithful service, Julie was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer November 15, 2019. Randall and the boys moved her close to Skylar’s and Spencer’s families in Central Georgia, where she lived out the rest of her days.
Julie’s life verse was “You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast because they trust in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.”
