August 18, 1946 — October 10, 2021

Marion, North Carolina


Julia Lynn McKinney Gouge, 75, of Marion, North Carolina, passed away Sunday, October 10, 2021 at her residence.


She was born in McDowell County on August 18, 1946 to the late Jack “Jay” Howard McKinney and Mildred Rae Johnston McKinney.

She had a deep love for flowers, birds, her husband and her family, even those that weren’t blood. She was an accomplished seamstress and crocheter. She loved movies and music and she loved to dance. She took great pride in her home. She was a wonderful cook and anyone who tasted her food will attest to how skilled she was in the kitchen. Julia was a wonderful wife, mother, Nana, and friend. She loved greatly and she was greatly loved by many. She will be dearly missed, but we are at peace knowing that she is now dancing in Heaven!

She is survived by her husband of 53 years, Neddie “Ned” J. Gouge; five children, Kim Cauthen (Eric), Nedra Byrd (David), Jay Lee (Amy), Scott Gouge (Chasity), Jeremy Gouge (Jessica); eleven grandchildren; four great grandchildren; and a special lady who she thought of as a sister, Mary Lynn Young.
