Our dear mother, Julia Lammonds VanDerveer, (lovingly called Ju Ju), sadly passed away on Saturday, August 13, 2022 at the age of 97 at First Health Moore Regional Hospital. She was a wonderful mother who was always there when we needed her.
Julia was born on June 16, 1925, in Biscoe, NC. She was the daughter of Lora Wright Lammonds. She was a faithful servant of God, first and foremost. She was a loving and devoted wife to her husband, whom she herself nursed for 21 years on the dialysis machine at home. They were business owners, and she was most remembered for her fabric shop, "Stitches and Things". She enjoyed listening to Alan Jackson's Gospel music. She also enjoyed reading, sewing, and crafting, until blindness robbed her of her vision. It was not uncommon when her name was spoken to hear about her bridal creations. Last, but not least, she loved her two dogs, Amy and Mia.
In addition to her mother, she was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Harold Lester VanDerveer Sr, and a sister and three brothers.
Julia is survived by her four children: Judy Lamonds of Biscoe; Ann Cranford of Troy; Harold L. VanDerveer Jr. of Biscoe and Cathy Charpentier (Tony) of Biscoe. She was blessed with nine grandchildren, multiple great grandchildren and great great grandchildren.
