She grew up in rural Albert Lea and graduated from Albert Lea High School in 1955. On Oct. 6, 1956, Julie married George Wrolson at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Garner, Iowa. Before settling in Albert Lea, the couple had brief stints in Oregon, Rochester, and La Crescent. Julie worked at Standard Oil, Queens, Scottsman and Lou-Rich where she retired from at age of 70. She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, the Elks Club and the Eagles Club. Julie enjoyed camping, karaoke with her daughter, traveling and spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren.
