Julie Summers

September 26, 1956 — September 24, 2023

Julie Cardall Summers passed away the morning of September 24, 2023 after a long and courageous battle with Parkinson's Disease.

Julie was born to Gordon Edward Cardall and Nedra Whitaker on September 26, 1956. She was raised in Bountiful and graduated from Bountiful High School in 1974. After high school she moved to Provo and attended Brigham Young University, where she received her Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education.

While studying at BYU, Julie met her sweetheart, David Gregory Summers. They were married in the Salt Lake Temple on April 28, 1976. In their 47 years together, they had 5 children: Elizabeth Ann, David Jacob, Richard Alan, Zachary Edward, and Hannah Jae.

Julie started her own preschool and taught hundreds of children while living in Woods Cross, Centerville, and American Fork. She also started a craft business and painted thousands of candy and cookie jar lids, selling them at crafts fairs and the Quilted Bear. She later expanded her crafting business to also include quilts, table runners, and jewelry.

After her third child (Ricky) passed away, due to a heart defect, Julie became involved with the Festival of Trees for Primary Children's Hospital. She served on the Women's Endowment Board for several years. Julie came up with the concept of Kids Korner which is still an integral feature of the Festival of Trees today.

As the children got older, Julie returned to school at BYU, even enrolling in some of the same classes as her children. After receiving her degree in Psychology from BYU, she began working for the City of Orem as a Victim's Advocate, where she helped countless victims of crime navigate the legal system. After several years at Orem, Julie was invited to work for the State of Utah to administer the federal grants for the victim advocacy programs across the state. She worked in this position until a stroke made it impossible for her to continue.

Julie was active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served as Primary President, in the Relief Society Presidency, as a Gospel Doctrine instructor and many other positions including in the Cub Scouts and Young Women's programs.

Julie was fiercely loyal to her family. Her greatest joys in life were her kids and grandkids. She loved doting on them and spending time with them. She always found ways to help and serve others.

Julie is preceded in death by her son, Richard Alan (Ricky), and her father, Gordon Cardall. She is survived by her husband, Dave, her mother, Nedra Cardall, her siblings: Connie (Max) Gilbert, Alan (Nancy) Cardall, her children: Liz (Jon) Evans, Jake (Stacy) Summers, Zac Summers, Hannah (Jordan) Farrer, and her 7 grandchildren.
