Julia Reyna & Ernest Charles Felix, Sr
Julia Reyna Felix died peacefully at home and embraced by the love of her family on August 25, 2021. Julia is now reunited with her beloved husband Ernest (Ernie) Felix, Sr., with whom she shared a happy and blessed marriage of over 68 years.
Born on June 23, 1927 to Angelita and Gilbert Reyna, Julia’s life was one of hard work, love, and devotion to family. After her husband Ernie was permanently disabled in World War II, Julia steadfastly stood by his side and supported him throughout his life. She was a silent strength for her family, working long hours at different financial institutions throughout Tucson.
Julia had a strong dedication to learning and loved exercising her brain. After retiring from work, she continued her schooling at the University of Arizona. A voracious reader, Julia always had a stack of novels nearby along with her daily crossword puzzles. But nothing brought her more joy or could get her more animated than watching her grandchildren and great-grandchildren play sports.
Julia enjoyed a long and blessed life – surrounded by the ones she loved until the end. She is preceded in death by her loving husband Ernie Sr, son Ernie Jr, and granddaughter Jennifer. Her memory and legacy will live on through her surviving children Anne Marie (Jesse), Gilbert (Lily), Robert (Mary) and her 10 grandchildren, 18 great grandchildren (with one on the way), and 1 great-great grandchild.
A funeral mass will be said on Tuesday, September 14, 2021 at 9:30 am at St. Pius X Catholic Church. Julia will be laid to rest alongside her husband at 12:00 pm at the Arizona Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Marana, AZ followed by a Celebration of Life.To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Julia Reyna and Ernest Charles Felix, Sr., please visit Tribute Store
