Julie was born on December 8, 1852, and moved to Prescott from Walton, New York, in 1901.

She married William Abial Drake, who engineered the construction of the Verde Valley Railway line and was assistant vice president of the Santa Fe Railroad. The town of Drake is named for him. He was a native Prescottonian.

The Drakes had three children and lived at 123 North Mt. Vernon. Julie belonged to the Monday Club. Her daughters Nellie Meany, Mattie McClung and Dorothy Ulmo are also represented in the Rose Garden.

Julie died in November 1939 and was interred in Mountain View Mausoleum. Both the rector of St. Luke's Episcopal Church and the Reverend of the First Congregational Church participated in the services for her.
