Julie was raised in Racine and graduated from St. Catherine’s High School “Class of 1975”. She had been employed as a CNA and as a church secretary. However, her passion was in the role of a caregiver whether in the capacity of home care for Alzheimer patients or for her own family. Julie also started the homeless program at St. Edward’s Catholic Church.
This project went community wide and eventually transformed into HALO. Julie worked for HALO for five years and was involved for 10 years. Julie enjoyed crafts, card making, cross stitch, sewing and baking. She loved traveling and had been to almost every state. One of her favorite places was Myrtle Beach which was where on Oct, 4, 2006 she married the love of her life, Anthony “Patrick” Pauly. Julie was devoted daughter, sister, wife, and friend who will be dearly missed.
