She went to work at Elk River High School and Lake Crystal-Welcome Memorial High School. Her greatest pleasure was working with kids at each school where she was employed. Her endless gifts of patience, understanding and her ability to never judge never went unnoticed by the staff and those blessed to be around her. Julie also enjoyed golfing, gardening, reading books, dancing and music. She loved her church home at Hosanna Lutheran Church in Mankato and absolutely adored her two children. Her life was living for her kids, being with her family and making the most of her own life by just being happy. Julie was a member of the New Ulm Country Club and Hosanna Lutheran Church in Mankato. In lieu of flowers, the family prefers memorials be made to Family Wishes.
