    Julia was always such a nice, caring woman and always made sure everyone was having a great time. I can’t remmeber a single time where she didn’t offer me something to eat or drink and she had such a fun and quirky personality. One of my favorite things about her was how into watching wrestling she was and that no matter how warm it was inside or outside she would always wear blankets and sweatshirts like capes! She is definitely going to be missed by many! What a great thought that she gets to be with her husband and the rest of her family!

    Julie was such a sweetheart. She and my mom, Eunice Solem, would always have coffee together for many years. Eunice and Harold lived next door to Julie and Red for several years. Julie was such a kind lady. Sorry for you loss. Eunice died 3 years ago.
