Julie A. Poff
Julie Ann Poff, 42, of Tampa, FL, formerly of Cape Coral, FL, passed away Tuesday, July 24th, 2018. She was born August 31, 1975 in Naples, FL.
Julie was a graduate of North Fort Myers High School in 1993 as well as a graduate from Florida State University in 1997, where she was a cheerleader and Golden Girl dancer.
Julie will be remembered most for the love and devotion she had for her greatest accomplishment, her daughter Kayla. Kayla was Julie’s world and she was never prouder than when talking about Kayla’s many accomplishments as a golfer. Whether Junior golf, High School or College, Julie was always Kayla’s biggest cheerleader. Julie’s beautiful smile and larger than life personality always lit up a room and made everyone happy to be in her company. We will miss Julie during football season but now she has the best seat in the house to watch her beloved ‘Noles. Although we lost Julie at a young age, the family wishes to express that Julie passed in peace surrounded by her closest friends and loved ones.
