Julie Ann Downes passed away peacefully in her home on Saturday, January 18, 2020, at the age of 66. Julie was born in Boston, MA to Richard and Julie (Dolan) Downes.
Julie grew up in Winchester, Massachusetts and lived in the Boston area her entire life. She graduated from Winchester High School, class of 1971, and later attended the University of New Hampshire where she graduated cum laude with a Bachelor’s degree in Education.
Prior to her illness, Julie was employed as an Administrative Assistant at Brickpoint Properties in Stoneham and was previously employed in the office at Arrow Associates of Burlington for many years. Throughout her career, Julie was always a professional, dedicated employee committed to helping people.
Julie made friends easily with her quick wit and warm welcoming manner. She loved being around people and created friendships in many different communities. The center of Julie’s world was her partner Ken Jalbert. He was truly the love of her life. Julie loved to read, knit, travel, watch sports and spend time with her family.

She is also survived by her nephews David Scarpello, Aaron Scarpello, Leigh Tinmouth, Drew Costello, Jake Costello, and Alex Downes and nieces Mary Downes, Kate Baker, and Loretta Costello whom she loved dearly. Julie is also survived by her aunt Jan Dolan and many cousins.

So sad that Julie passed. I knew her through the McGrath's. Pixie and Maria are good friends and Julie was a roommate of Jim McGrath, back in the 80's. Always warm, friendly and kind. Whenever I would see Julie she made me laugh. I know her health issues were on going but I never heard her complain. She was such a bright light in our world, making all of our lives better. An extraordinary lady. God Bless Julie, may you RIP.. With Sincere Sympathy, Tricia Donohue.
