Karen Stickney says
I will truely miss my little sister. She was there for me many times throughout my life. May she rest in peace.
Bernie Neuhaus says
The loss of my loving partner for thirty-five years weighs heavily on my heart. During her healthy years we did everything together: campfires in the backyard year-round, salmon fishing in Algoma WI on Lake Michigan, we were married on the shore of Lake Michigan, fished walleye tournaments and recreational fishing in the five-state area and Ontario Canada. Julie loved fishing, she often went with her father when she was a child. She even went with me prairie dog shooting in South Dakota. She often went to Happy Hour to play E-tabs with her girlfriends and enjoy MGD beer. Julie and I enjoyed life to its fullest. Although I miss her immensely, I am comforted knowing she is with our Lord and no longer suffers or worries. Please pray for her. Julie is now in hands of God, at peace, forever.
Bernie Neuhaus says
We will continue Julie’s Celebration of Life around 7:00 at Happy Hour. You are welcome to join us.

I was surprised to read of Julie’s passing. I used to do her hair and also Bethany and Marti Jean when the kids were younger. Julie was always so much fun and lived her life with smiles. I always remembered her talking about the evening campfires. I what to send my sympathy to each of you losing that special person is hard to bear, think of those times that she made you laugh and smile and praying for comfort to all of you. Hugs
