Northborough – Juliette “Julie” George-Anne DuPont (May 27, 1936 – April 11, 2019) passed away at her home April 11, 2019.
Julie was born and raised in “Southie” Boston. Her blended family fostered independence and hard work. After high school, she joined the Blue Cross Blue Shield where she started in the mailroom and eventually was promoted to upper level management. At a time when few women were advancing in the corporate world, Julie achieved great success.
In 1959, she married Emil (Bill) Dupont of Marlborough. Their shared passions included travelling, camping, searching out a great bargain, and caring for their beloved pets. Together, Julie and Bill established Warbonnet Farm in Northborough, dedicating themselves for over two decades to breeding, raising, and showing Appaloosa horses.
Julie and Bill co-founded the Yankee Appaloosa Association in order to garner the enthusiasm of other horse owners. In retirement, Julie and Bill continued to support the rights of animals, as well as other worthy charities such as Wounded Warriors, The Salvation Army, Helping Hands, The Elephant Sanctuary, and PETA.
Julie prided herself on answering the questions on the TV show Jeopardy faster than the contestants. She loved an occasional excursion to Mohegan Sun. She was also the master at stretching a meal. She was a proud member of the National Republican Party, donating both time and resources to the right. Most recently, she became a licensed thoroughbred owner in Massachusetts.
Julie is remembered with love and gratitude by her extended family, the O’Neills, the Sawyers, the Doreys, and the Benoits, as well as her close friends and neighbors.
Burial in Howard Street Cemetery was private. There are no public services planned.
