Mrs. Julie Dawn Harden, known to many as "Jewls", age 52, passed away at her home on Thursday, February 13, 2020 in Providence, Florida.
She was born to Dan Clark Cooper, Sr. and Dorothy Ann Avirett on December 9, 1967. Julie graduated from Baker County High School in 1985. She worked many years in corrections before pursuing her passion in nursing where her self-proclaimed motto was, "Not my circus, Not my monkeys!"
The most important things in her life were always family first, her beloved pets and her Georgia Bulldogs. She was an incredible mom to so many throughout the years, whether by blood or by choice, and for anyone who had the chance to know her, was privileged to have done so.
She is predeceased by her father, Dan Clark Cooper, Sr. and her brothers, Thomas Scott Cooper and Richard Mark Cooper.
She leaves behind to cherish her memories her husband of 29 years, Mark Harden of Providence; her daughters, Samantha Jolene Shedd and Rebekah Danielle Harden (Marcus Strickland); her son, Jesse Harden; her granddaughter, Kaidence Crews; siblings, Dan Clark Cooper, Jr. "Danny" (Kathy) of Interlachen and Leigh Anne Walls (Rocky) of Macclenny; numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, great-nieces and great-nephews and many friends also survive.
The family will receive friends for a visitation Thursday, February 20th beginning at 2pm at Archer Funeral Home. Arrangements are under the care and direction of ARCHER FUNERAL HOME, Lake Butler, FL. 386-496-2008
