Julie Canfield of Downingtown, went home to be with Jesus on Thursday, July 15, 2021 at 91 years of age. Born to William and Janette McClellan in Sapulpa, Oklahoma, Julie graduated from Sapulpa High School in 1948 and attended Oklahoma University. She met and married James N. Canfield III in Kansas City, Missouri, while Jim was still employed by Westinghouse. They eventually moved their family to Pennsylvania where they would live out the rest of their days.
Julie poured her life into serving others and sharing her faith in Jesus Christ. She sought the good in every situation and person, while always encouraging others, and “looking to the Lord” every day. Her mission in life, known to everyone that knew her, was to share the Gospel and to love unconditionally. She never had a cross word to say about anyone, and was everyone’s best friend and biggest supporter.
Julie was preceded in death by her husband, James in 2019, and her daughter, Beth Canfield McFalls in 2020. Julie is survived by her son, Eric Canfield (Heidi Canfield), Dave Canfield (Maria Garcia-Prieto), Jim Canfield (Tracey Canfield); 14 grandchildren and their spouses, and 9 great grandchildren.
Funeral services for Julie will be held at 11:00AM, Saturday, July 24, 2021 at Calvary Chapel Chester Springs, 217 Dowlin Forge Rd. Exton, PA 19341. Visitation will be held prior at the church from 9:30AM - 10:45AM. Guests are asked to wear joyful colors in celebration of Julie’s life. Burial will take place privately.
