Julie was born in Shreveport, LA the first daughter of Milton Bennett and Oma Ruth Carlisle. Julie was raised in Laurel, MS and graduated from George S. Gardner High School. After graduation she enrolled in Mississippi State College for Women, the “W”.

Julie was a devoted wife and mother and over the years she oversaw nine major household moves. She spent countless hours volunteering and was always willing to help out when needed. After moving to Houston she discovered her love for tennis. For many years she was active in the Westside Ladies Tennis Association where she played almost daily and made many wonderful friends. Julie was an avid fan of all things Texas A&M and Mississippi State and loved supporting their sports teams. Above all she was known for her loving dedication to her family, especially her grandchildren. She found great joy in taking them on Disney cruise adventures, hosting them at their lake house and traveling with Jim to see them participate in various sports and activities. She is survived by her husband Jim Rouse, sister Gail Gravell of Orlando, FL, daughters Lisa (Jeff) Taylor of Johns Creek GA and Connie (Bill) Fuller of Zionsville IN, grandchildren Chris Taylor, Claire Taylor, Connie Taylor, Kathleen Fuller, Scott (Jordan) Fuller, Brian Fuller and many nieces and nephews.
