Graveside services are scheduled for 2 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 24, at Woodbine Cemetery for Elzie Julia Kingsland.

Julie, as she preferred to be called, was born Nov. 5, 1932, in the small copper mining town of Alamo, Nev., to Ray and Edith (Knight) Kingsland.

By trade, Julie was a banker. She worked at a bank in Farmington for several years. In the early 1960s, she and Edith moved to Artesia, where Julie went to work for First National Bank as a bookkeeper. Many in Artesia will remember the old double-post NCR machines before the era of the computer. Later, Julie managed loan records and collateral files in the bank’s loan vault.

She retired in the early 1990s and enjoyed the peace and solitude of her later years. One of her great passions was baseball. It was not unusual for her to take a week of vacation every year to stay home and watch the World Series, beginning to end, on TV.

Julie was a member of the LDS church.

Survivors include brother-in-law Jerry Clay of Springville, Utah; nephews Jerald Paul Clay of Taylorsville, Utah, and David Lynn Clay of Salt Lake City, Utah; seven grand-nephews; and two grand-nieces, all of whom were near and dear to Julie.

She was preceded in death by her parents and two sisters.

Arrangements are under the direction of Terpening & Son Mortuary. Condolences may be expressed online at www.artesiafunerals.com.
