When Julia was about eight years old, her mother married again. Sometime later, her surname was changed by Deed Poll to her stepfather's surname of Reid to "fit in with my mother's new family". According to her Aunty Joyce, Julia ran away from home when she was a small child. Julia's first job was working in a Milk Bar at the age of 10. After working there sometime, she apparently couldn't stand working in the back doing the dishes and because she wanted a pair of nylon stockings, she put her age up and began working at McKenzies and then Woolworths, which were large Department Stores at the time. She worked on the counter and also demonstrating children's toys, both in the store and in the window on Friday nights and in the school holidays. She followed this with permanent work in a number of offices until she assisted her husband Mark as a telephone minder and office worker in his Funeral Directing business. She later trained to be a Speech and Drama Teacher and later still, trained for and set up her own business as a Beauty Therapist and Electrologist. She enjoyed swimming in Masters Competitions.
