Julie Huguley Jones Villar
Julie Huguley Jones Villar, 91, beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great grandmother passed away peacefully in her Lilburn home on Saturday, October 8, 2022, in the presence of her loving family.
Born September 22, 1931 in Atlanta, Georgia, Julie was the daughter of the late Clint Huguley and Julia Garner Huguley. She attended Bass High School and lived her entire adult life in Dekalb and Gwinnett counties.
During the late 60’s and 70’s, Julie and her husband, Bob Jones, were active in the DeKalb County Jaycees & Jaycettes. Julie served the organization in many capacities including chapter President and was the first woman to be presented with a Key Man award by the Jaycees for her outstanding service to and support of their organization.
She was employed for many years as the assistant to the director of the Georgia Health Care Association in Decatur, Georgia and in 1977 she became an owner/partner and secretary/treasurer of DeKalb Fire Protection Service Inc. (Georgia Fire Protection Service) from which she retired in 2010.
Julie enjoyed working her daily crossword puzzles and playing Words with Friends; reading; traveling; sewing, knitting, crocheting, & cross stitching; dancing; watching all forms of car racing, cheering on the Atlanta Braves, rooting for the Falcons and the Georgia Bulldogs; sharing a girls’ night with her oldest daughter every Thursday, and being with family. But mostly, Julie was totally devoted to the fur babies that were her constant companions throughout her life.
Julie was preceded in death by her husbands, Bob Jones (1977) and Joe Villar (1993), and by her younger brother, Clint Huguley Jr. (2018). She is survived by her four children: Connie Andrews (Everett), Dacula; Robin Andrews (Woody), Pendergrass; Scott Jones (April), Orlando, Florida; and Cris Jones (Kathy) Friendswood, Texas; 8 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren, and 1 great-great grandchild.
The family will receive guests for visitation on Thursday, October 13, 2022, from 5-7 p.m. at Wages & Sons Funeral Home, 1040 Main Street, Stone Mountain, Georgia 30083.
Julie will be laid to rest beside Bob, “the love of her life” in a private service at a later date.

Memories Timeline


  1. So wish I could be there to honor Aunt Julie. Although it’s been many years since I’ve visited, I have fond memories of Julie and know she had a special place in our dad’s heart and life. We enjoyed reminiscing with pictures of her and our dad and their parents when our dad passed in 2018. Bless you as you grieve your loss and remember and celebrate her life.

  2. I have such fond memories of Aunt Julie from fifty years ago. As time passes and families grow we get busy and lose touch but what I remember most are her grace and sweet beauty and her beautiful smile. My condolences to her children and grandchildren and greats. As a grandmother myself I know her love for her is best cherished by loving your own in the same way.

  3. I am so sorry for your loss. Julie was my neighbor in Lilburn until I moved away in 2016. She was a wonderful person and a very good neighbor. I know she will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with the family she loved dearly.

  4. CandleImageFrom the first time I met her, ‘Grandma’ (I never called her JJ) welcomed me like one of her family. I loved her dearly and she always made me smile when in her presence. I loved dinner nights at her home with Kristie, Matt, and the girls. She will be sorely missed. May she Rest In Peace. Prayers for the family.

  5. I’m so sorry to hear of Aunt Julie’s passing. I wish I’d had the opportunity to visit with her and reminisce with pictures of her and dad. When we did talk, she spoke with such grace and kindness. My prayers and condolences to her family and friends.
