posted on 04/25/2013

Our thoughts and prayers are sent to the family and the members of Isadora Gymnastics Club, whose coach Julie Volochko-Edlis has passed away after a battle with cancer. Her colleagues write that during her two decades with the club, she taught each and every gymnast like her own daughter. Julie coached anyone and everyone, and she brought out the best in each of them.

A great number of National Team members were cultivated by Julie. Even in her strictness as a coach, her warm heartedness could be felt by all. Julie's commitments to her students, fellow coaches and family always superseded her personal desires. Julie loved life and was a very well-rounded person. She battled her cancer valiantly and kept going like nothing would stop her.

The community has lost an energetic, positive and strong-willed individual.
