Julia Smith Wardle

Julia Smith Wardle is a busy mother of six, a supporting and loving grandmother of 27 but most importantly, a woman of strength, talent, creativity, faith and plenty of energy.

Julia was honored as the 2019 Tremonton Women’s Civic League’s annual Mother of the Year, an award given out during their regular league meeting to one member each year. This year’s ceremony was held on Thursday, April 4, 2019, at the Tremonton Senior Center to a room packed full of Julia’s friends, family and fellow club members.

Each of Julia’s six children spent a few minutes sharing their memories and thoughts on their mother.

“She has given us a lot of memories, and it brings a smile and joy to us,” said Troy Wardle, Julia’s oldest child.

He touched upon Julia’s impact, not only on her own children, but those in the community.

“My mom is a champion of children,” he said.

Troy also shared her nickname amongst his children, Sugar Grandma, because she always allows them to eat sugary cereal at her house when they visit.

Deborah Corbridge, Julia’s oldest daughter, also shared her mother’s unique creativity and talents that she’s passed on to her family.

“She always encouraged creativity in us,” Deborah said. “It has made me value that part of her teaching me those things.”

Julia is an accomplished quilter, embroiderer, seamstress, cake maker and much more, and has taught not only her children but her grandchildren those skills as well.

Sherry Rushton, the third Wardle child, also emphasized her mother’s teaching abilities and her mother’s selflessness.

“She always thinks of others before herself,” Sherry said. “She is amazing.”

Laurel Rowley, the fourth child in the family, added, “You have made our home a place of peace and joy and love.”

The fifth of Julia’s children, Lynette Barker, added that her mother’s energy and happy demeanor have always made for a happy home and childhood.

“Her energy is one of her greatest qualities,” Lynette said. “My mom always has a smile on her face and is always happy.”

Julia’s youngest child, Blair Wardle, was emotional when talking about his mother and her unwavering faith as a righteous member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, something she instilled in all her children.

“She is an absolute pillar of righteousness in my life,” Blair said. “She is always humbly and quietly doing what is right.”

To finish off the love Julia’s family has for her, they all sang an original song for her as she watched with tears in her eyes.

“I’m speechless. This is such a shock, but it means a lot me,” Julia said.

Julia married Allen Wardle and they shared 52 years of marriage before he passed away in 2017. She currently resides in Tremonton.
