Julia was born on July 30, 1969 in Atlanta, GA, the daughter of the late Ronald Mulholland and Donna Mae Walker. At a young age, the family moved to Charlevoix and later to Petoskey and lived at the Old Moser’s Cabins where she first met the boy that she would later marry in life. She graduated from Petoskey High School with the class of 1989 and worked various places in the area, including at Boyne Highlands and Carters. She later went to work with the Youth Corps and took part in building one of the paths that are still in use today along M-119.
On November 5, 1995, Julia married the boy that she once met at the Moser’s Cabins, Robert Holland, and together they made their home in Petoskey.
Julia enjoyed playing on her tablet, listening to music, watching movies, doing crosswords, and working on model cars. She loved fast cars. She could also be found watching NASCAR with her husband Bob. She was a member of the Little Travers Bay Band of Odawa Indians.
