February 5, 1971 - February 10, 2019
Julie Lynn Raffety Boone, 48, of Wynne, died on Sunday, February 10, 2019, in St. Louis. Julie was born in LaGrange, Illinois on February 5, 1971, to William M. Raffety and Carolyn Smith Raffety. She attended the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville and Louisiana State University. Julie was a Veterinarian at Cross County Veterinarian Clinic. She loved her family and her community. She was co-founder of 363, Feed the Need, instrumental with the well in Haiti, Living Water for the World. She was the President/Secretary for the Stingers, a Baseball Commissioner and a member of Wynne Presbyterian Church. Julie gave this world and this community all of herself. She was fearless, although she would say she wasn’t, compassionate but never felt she was enough, humble, and just plain kind… One of a kind to be sure. Her ability and willingness to love and serve was innate. She loved without measure and always put herself last. To say she was passionate would be an understatement. She loved baseball, not for the sport, but because it gave children in the community an opportunity – to be loved, to be seen, to be appreciated, to be a part of something meaningful. She loved her family, her friends, even her dogs without measure, but above all she loved to serve, to give all God blessed her with and then some. She never stopped striving to know and do His will. Her heart knew no limits. To know Julie is to love her. She leaves us with this legacy of love, a legacy she without a doubt intends for us to carry on - one of service above self, love, friendship, laughter, and pure goodness. You loved deeply Julie Boone, and you are deeply loved. “Intense love does not measure- it just gives.” - Mother Teresa She is survived by her husband Matt, sons, Eli , Austin, and Trevor Boone, parents, William and Carolyn Raffety of Wynne and brother, Bill Raffety, Jr. of Russellville and many cousins. Visitation will be held at Kernodle Funeral Home on Wednesday, February 13, 2019, from 6 to 8 PM. Funeral services will be held on Thursday, February 14, 2019, 11 AM at Wynne Presbyterian. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials be made to the 363, Feed The Need, P. O.
