She was a member of the First Reformed Church in Sibley.Julia was a devoted wife and mother. She loved hosting Sunday dinners after church; there was always enough room for everyone, around the table. She loved doing arts and crafts with her grandchildren, taking pictures with her Brownie camera, camping in the summers, and spending time at the lakes with her friends. She also enjoyed crocheting, needlework, and vegetable and flower gardening, when she was able.

It was very important for Julia to have devotions throughout each day and to be close to her Lord. When life was hard for her, she did not complain, and put her trust in the Lord.

She passed away on Sunday, November 15, 2009, at the Sibley Nursing and Rehab in Sibley.

Those left to cherish her memories are her daughter-in-law: Jennie Hofkamp of Phoenix, AZ; two granddaughters: Lisa and husband Kevin Wolf of Phoenix, AZ, Suzie and husband John Sindt of Everly, IA; five great-grandchildren: Braxton, Jakob and Hailey Wolf, Allister and Amanda Sindt; and several nieces and nephews.
