Obituary for Julie Francis Ridenour

Julie Francis Ridenour (Hoppes) passed away October 6, 2022 at the age of 57. She was born on September 7, 1965.

Julie loved spending time traveling with her husband to the casinos and her up-north trips. She loved working at the Portland Senior Center and helping anyone that needed help. She loved playing cards whether it was Euchre, Canasta, Blackjack, Poker, and of course Bingo. Julie also loved crossword puzzles. Julie will be missed by all.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Florence Hoppes; brothers-in-law, Carl Harris and Terre Coffman.

She is survived by Eugene, her husband of 23 years, and siblings: Kathlene Harris, Robert (Linda) Hoppes, Vicki (Al) Richar, Mary {Dan} Ferguson, Joyce Hoppes, Jeanne (Thomas) Grawburg, Judy (Rob) Barr, Marsha (Daniel) Gambill, John Hoppes; and niece Sabrina Gambill (Binit) ­Panda, and nephews Robert Hoppes, Daniel (Katelyn) Hoppes, Robert Barr, and Grant Gambill; great nephews Danny and Lawton and great niece Hazel.

Also surviving are her mother and father-in-law Norman and Mary Vernon, and brother-in-law Kenny (Suzanne) Ridenour.

Julie had a special place in her heart for her best friend Kris (Alan) Sharp-Thelen, and their daughter Sydney (Garrison) Grosshans. They shared a 45-year friendship. She and Julie were as close as sisters. We appreciate everything that Kris has done, she has always been there for Julie and her family.
