Julie Ann Bettis Currier, 67, of Overland Park, KS, passed away on Monday, August 16, 2021. She was born on June 20, 1954 in Delta, Colorado to Harold and Marie (Tilley) Bettis who preceded her in death.

Julie spent her childhood years through high school in Delta, graduating from Delta High School in 1972. She attended and graduated from Ottawa University, Ottawa, Kansas in 1976 with a degree in City Planning.

Her family knew her as someone who always loved to give creative and imaginative gifts and her home was a reflection of her many eclectic interests. Her sons, Evan and Collin, were the joys of her life.
