Julie Gillett Diersing, age 66, achieved her eternal reward on March 31, 2019. She was born August 24, 1952 to the late James Garnot Gillett and Julia Louise Collins in Kingsville, Texas.
Julie earned her bachelor's degree in education from Texas A&I University in 1974 and her master's degree in curriculum and instruction from Texas A&I University at Corpus Christi in 1977. She was a career high school teacher and spent 37 years at Mary Carroll High School teaching shorthand, typing, and business computer applications. During her many years at Carroll High School, she was much more than a teacher-she was a mentor and true friend to many students who loved her and she loved in return. Both then and now, they refer to her as "Mama D." After her retirement in 2013, she enjoyed her dogs, keeping in contact with former students, playing Mah-Jongg, gardening, home DIY projects, more frequent vacations and visits with friends, and talking to her friends on the phone daily. Julie was a Rotary Paul Harris Fellow.
She is survived by her husband, Robert Diersing; daughters, Julia Diane and Emily Catherine Diersing; brother, James Garnot (Becky Brown) Gillett, Jr.; and niece Hannah Louise Gillett.
