Julie was employed at Cabela’s. Work was more than a job; it was an extension of her family. She had a special way of connecting with people and wherever she went, it was like a reunion. Julie was so proud of her fur babies; Tubbie, Jayco, and Daffer whom she adored.

Julie loved the outdoors, had a passion for horses, and enjoyed shooting and hunting. She was active with the local riding club in her youth, winning many awards for her horsemanship. She had recently started 4 wheeling in the desert with her husband. Julie had a large circle of friends who adored her infectious smile, and heartwarming hugs that she was so well known for.
