Julie Ann Armstrong Henderson, 69, of Hendersonville, Tennessee, passed away on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 at Centennial Medical Center in Nashville. Julie was born March 9, 1950 in Goodlettsville, Tennessee to the late Henry Escue and Dorothy Briley Escue.

Julie went to Beech Elementary and Middle School in Hendersonville, TN, where she loved playing basketball on the team. She graduated from Maplewood High School, Nashville, TN in 1968. She began working at her first “real job” at Cain Sloan Department Store in Nashville TN. Shortly after getting married to Eddie Armstrong she was employed by a bank in Los Angeles, CA while they lived in Hollywood. Upon returning to Nashville, she landed a job she loved at Vanderbilt University Medical Center Department of Pharmacology where she worked until starting a family.

Julie was a people person. She never met a stranger. She was quick to make conversation and had an infectious laughter. She loved to hug and would plant a kiss, if she could get by with it! She loved reminiscing about the good ole days of high school, her kids growing up, and vacations to Florida. Hands down, the beach was her favorite location, where she could feel the warm sand under her feet, gentle breeze flow through her hair, breathe in the salty air, and listen to the calm ocean waves kiss the shore.

We will love and miss you sweet Julie, until our Jesus comes to reunite us.🌹

Julie was preceded in death by her husband Rick Henderson, her father, Henry Escue, mother, Dorothy Escue, and brother Justin Escue.

Julie is survived by her loving partner, Paul Bayless of Madison, TN who remained by her side in sickness and in health and whom the family is forever great full; her two daughters: Andra (Delton) Armstrong-Chen, of Sanford, FL and Sara (Tim) Holloway, of Hendersonville, TN, and son: Daniel Armstrong, of Nashville, TN, step-sons: Robert Henderson (Caitlin) of Hubert, NC, Zach Henderson, of Anchorage AK, and step daughter Katherine (Jesse) Saville of Fort Lewis, WA, brother: James (Cynthia) Escue, of Gallatin TN, sisters: Shirley Mills, of Ooltewah, TN, Loretta Tamba, of Fort Walton Beach, FL, Tammy (Gary) Hunt, of Nashville TN and Janie (Mike) Shepard, of Hendersonville, TN; stepmother, Annette Escue, of Nashville TN; nephews and nieces: Christopher(Kimberly) Escue, Lanessa (Alex) Bueno, Dahlia (David) Swatzell, Heather (Tony) Brown, Matt (Brandy) Mills, Brandi (Kenny) Lynch, Josh, (Romek) Escue, Brandon Thompson, Brook Thompson, Clay Cantrell, Faye Cantrell; great nephews and neices: Chris Escue, Lucas and Nina Bueno, Ian and Mia Swatzell, Syrenna, Lily, Steven and Layla Mills, Hayden and Grayson Lynch, Alexus and CJ Cantrell.

    Julie, I will always picture you in my mind as a teenager and all of the times that you spent the night at my house and we talked all night and giggled.
    Life was much more simple back then , and I miss that time.
    I am so very glad that you reached out to me a year ago and we go to share and talk about old times .
    Relive a lot of special moments .

    I’ll always remember your laugh and smile.
    You were a special person in my life and I wish that we had gotten to talk once more . Oh the prayers I prayed
    For you!
    Rest in sweet peace , my sister in Christ .
    I’ll see you again one sweet day . Until then , I love you .

    It seemed like she was my Aunt Julie, even though we weren’t really related. She was familiar to me all my life and meant a lot to me. I remember living beside her and her family in the early 1980’s as my earliest and some of my fondest memories. As an adult, I looked forward to seeing her and knew she would welcome me with a big hug. She always had kind words for me. I will remember her voice, her laugh, and her smile.

    I love you Julie. What will I do without you. Remembering you called me everyday just to chat, share stories, gossip or just laugh about silly stuff.
    You showed me you cared enough to call, write a note, or send money even for my grandkids . I’ll alway remember your smile and laugh and walking on the beach as teenagers then going to the miracle strip to flirt with boys our age or get a snow cone. We have so many memories that I will always cherish.

    I met Ms Julie in 1981 when my brother married her sister Tammy.
    She always had a smile and a very kind soul everytime I ever saw her over the years. She was an awesome mother to her 3 childrem and always was there to help others . I will always remember her smile and always making myself and my daughter feel a part of the family which All the sisters and Grandma Escue always treated us like family.Im truly grateful to have known Ms Julie and Im sure she’s smiling down on on all of you from heaven. Holding all the Family up in prayers for your loss.

    Julie was our friend for over 40 years. Our family and Julie’s family were neighbors when all the kids were small. We cherish that time we spent with all the family and will miss Julie very much. During her battle with this terrible disease, Julie fought with all she had. She was blessed to have a wonderful friend and caregiver like Paul to be at her side every moment of the battle. Julie loved all her family and especially her children. Julie went to sleep with the blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great GOD and SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST.

    A beautiful celebration of life today for our dear sweet friend, Julie. Julie would have loved to have seen her family and friends who filled up the church. I’m sure she would have laughed with those who laughed, hugged as many as possible, and cried with those who cried. She would have spoken about her good friend, Jesus, and her trust in Him. She would have made sure you felt loved.

    Julie often spoke of her love for her three children and they were on her heart no matter how difficult things got for her. Her courage was amazing, but even more amazing was how she opened her heart to God and blessed others during her difficult trials.

    We all look forward to seeing Julie again on that great reunion day.

    May our Lord and Savior come soon!
