Mary Jo Juul Obituary

Mary Jo (McDevitt) Juul was born on January 6, 1940, to Walter and Frances McDevitt in Fairbanks, Alaska.  She spent the majority of her childhood in the Yakima/Selah Washington area and graduated from Selah High School in 1959.  She went on to Sacred Heart Nursing School in Spokane, Washington, and graduated in 1961.  She practiced briefly in Yakima, WA, and then decided to relocate to the Oregon coast in 1962.  She initially worked at Keizer Memorial Hospital, and then went to work for the North Bend Medical Group, where she worked with various general practice doctors until the mid-1990s.

She met Rudy Juul in 1963, and they married at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Yakima, WA, on April 4, 1964.  They had three children, Eric (passed away in 1968), Kristine, and Greg.  While working, Mary Jo actively supported her kids, especially in their sports endeavors, driving them to and from practice at all hours, and attending their events.  She also spent as much time as she could at their vacation home near Sisters, Oregon.  

Mary Jo was a voracious reader, loved to cook and bake, tended to her flowers, and actively attended Holy Redeemer Catholic Church.  Mary Jo lived a full life and will be remembered most for her work ethic, her fantastic laugh, and caring of others.  She is survived by her husband Rudy, her brother, John McDevitt and his wife Kay and their children, Shawn and Mindy, as well as Mary Jo's children, Kristine and Greg, along with their spouses, Kelvin and Valerie, respectively, and her grandchildren, Mackenzie, Madelyn and Spencer Juul. 

At her request, no public services will be held. Cremation rites will be held at Ocean View Memory Gardens Crematory with inurnment at a later date as Sunset Memorial Park under the direction of Coos Bay Chapel 685 Anderson Ave. 541-267-3131.
