May 16, 1967 – May 20, 2014
When Julie Carol Weninger Orosco died in her sleep May 20, 2014, she had a lot to dream.

She could dream about the impending high school graduation and gap year in Senegal, Africa, of her oldest daughter, Olivia Orosco. She could dream about her youngest daughter Emilia Orosco climbing a rock wall in an arm brace at the school outdoor camp the two of them attended — when they got home, a purple cast would replace the brace. Julie could dream about finally completing her Ph.D. in Mathematics Education at UC Davis — her daughters will walk the stage in June to collect their mother’s doctorate. Maybe she was a little girl attending the annual plumber’s Christmas ball with her father John Weninger. Or, maybe she was helping her mother work a food booth at the Holy Cross Church festival. Perhaps Julie was dreaming of sharing cake decorating techniques with her older sister Jeanette (Weninger) Ward, or laughing with her older brother John Weninger about the time he whacked a croquet ball at her. Or, she was dreaming about the adventures she shared with her family — snorkeling in Hawaii, swimming with pink dolphins in the Amazon, exploring glaciers in Alaska, and whitewater kayaking with her cousins. Julie may have been dreaming about the life she had with former husband Rodney Orosco: watching flash floods in El Paso, Texas; finding the best Mexican restaurant, ever, in Centralia, Washington; being an Army wife and living with a spouse at war; or, giving up a very lucrative teaching offer in El Dorado Hills to teach high school math and raise a family in Winters.

Julie survives in the memories of her friends and family as a woman with an uncompromising passion, a will to do what is right and a smile that squinches up around her midday blue eyes and reveals an enormous, honest heart.

A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. June 7 at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Winters. A dessert reception will follow at the adjacent parish hall.

A memorial account in Julie Orosco’s name has been set up at First Northern Bank. The funds will be used to support Julie’s daughters, Olivia and Emilia, in their education.

To contribute: Bring the contribution to any of the bank’s branches in the name of “Julie Orosco Memorial Fund,” or, mail checks made out to “Julie Orosco Memorial Fund” to First Northern Bank, 434 Second St., Davis, CA 95616.
