December 8, 1940
September 12, 2023 (82 years old)
In the sacred stillness of memories, we come together to honor the life of a cherished soul, Julie Nelson. Hailing from Cedar Falls, Iowa, Julie first graced this world in the serene town of Albert Lea, Minnesota. On September 12, 2023, at the age of 82, the heavens welcomed her gentle spirit.
It’s never easy to bid farewell, especially to someone whose essence radiated warmth and love. Every individual who was fortunate enough to cross paths with Julie is encouraged to pen down their fond memories and comforting words in the guestbook of her memorial page, offering solace to her family.
Before her, some stars had already found their place in the sky: her loving parents, Benjamin and Cora Anderson (Tasker), as well as her siblings, Barbara Brundige, John, and Gary Anderson.
Yet, the glow of Julie’s legacy is undiminished. Her memory is cradled in the hearts of her devoted sons: James Nelson (Amy) and Paul Nelson, both of Fredericksburg. The tales of her love, wisdom, and grace will be passed down through her doting grandchildren: Jessica Hoey (Mike), Cammie Nelson, Hilary Denk (Jacob), Paige Cota (Brett), and Curtis Nelson. The sparkle in the eyes of her great-grandchildren – Lainy, Alex Hoey, Everly, Esmai, Brooks, Elodie Cota, and Jaylen Denk – will forever mirror the light Julie brought into the world.
As we navigate this profound grief, let us come together to celebrate Julie’s journey, cherishing every moment, every lesson, and every love she shared.
