Julia Marie Hammer, 61, of Postville died Saturday, Feb. 10, 2007 at Veterans Memorial Hospital in Waukon. At her request, she was cremated and wished to have no services. Family and friends will have a memorial service in the future. Martin Funeral Home of Waukon assisted the family with services needed.

Julia was born September 7, 1945 in Madison, WI, the daughter of Joe and Wilma (Billy) Wittman. She attended Madison schools until 10th grade and later received her GED. She was married three times throughout her life and had two children. She was able to travel throughout the U.S., Germany and the Bahamas. After her second divorce, she moved from Washington state to Waukon to be closer to family.

Julia enjoyed working with people as a CNA and a cashier. She was employed by Wal-Mart until she was disabled by her illness. She enjoyed many things later in life. But most of all she enjoyed spending time with her granddaughter. She liked going to the boat on her birthday with her friends, spending time with family and friends, talking on the phone, playing cards, watching television, and eating out.

Survivors include one daughter, Shiloh Deal, and one granddaughter, Gabrielle Julia Deal-Burch, of Postville; one brother, Joe Wittman and special friend Danielle of DeSoto, WI; two nieces, Melanie and Clare Wittman of DeSoto, WI; two aunts, Sister Ann Wittman of Wisconsin and Jackie Wittman of Florida; and numerous other cousins.

Others that Julia considered family were Marcy Folsom and her sons Laen and Brenan of Waukon, Marsha Reisner and her daughters Nancy and Nikki and her son Trent of Waukon, Lisa LaBrec of Postville, and Ella Wilker of Postville.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her son, James A. Snorek in 1973.
