Julie Ann Hentges, 50, of Jefferson City, passed away Tuesday, December 29, 2020, at SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital.
She was born February 27, 1970, in Jefferson City, the daughter of the late Louis William and Henrietta Teresa (Stratman) Distler.
She was united in marriage on September 2, 2000, at St. Peter Catholic Church to Randall Joseph “Randy” Hentges, who resides at the home. Julie was a wife, mother, and homemaker, who loved to cook and to share her food with family and friends.
A 1988 graduate of McClintock High School in Tempe, Arizona, Julie received a degree in Cosmetology from House of Michael Beauty School in Mesa, Arizona. Fresh out of school Julie worked for her aunt, Mary Klein, at Cutter’s Cottage in Phoenix, before working closer to home at La Breeze Hair Salon in Mesa, Arizona, and had a very special bond with her coworkers and clients. After moving ‘back home’ to Missouri she was employed by ABB, working in transformer manufacturing and as a safety rep, and worked there for over 20 years.
Julie was very creative and fun-loving. In high school she was a member of the choral group and enjoyed participating in stage productions. She loved knitting hats and scarves and gave away many as Christmas gifts. A generous spirit, she found joy in helping others and was “everybody’s sister”. She loved spending time with her family on the family farm.
She was a member of St. Andrew Catholic Church.
Survivors include her husband, Randy; her daughter, Britney Rose Hentges, Jefferson City; siblings, Steve (Nancy) Distler, Chandler, Arizona; Judy (Richard) Nowack, Holts Summit; and Rick (Linda) Distler, Gilbert, Arizona.
