Julia was born on January 26, 1932 in Wishek as the daughter of the late Conrad and Margaret Wald. She attended a country school in Emmons County. She married Alex on June 2, 1952 and lived on the Feist family farm outside of Zeeland for two years before moving to St. Paul, Minnesota. They then moved to Bismarck, where she worked for the American Legion and then as a retail clerk at Osco Drug and Lucas.

Taking care of the family was her greatest joy. She was a great cook and loved to bake. She loved the holidays when the whole family got together as she baked her 27 cakes. Everyone had their favorite and she made sure he was there for them. She made everyone feel special.

Some of the things she enjoyed were working with her flowers in bloom, having happy hour, playing cards, especially polka dancing, crocheting, and traveling to Florida with the family. She and Alex took each of their children and families to Disney World, where she wouldn’t miss a ride. She was always ready to try everything! She loved spending time on Brush Lake, entertaining, boating, fishing, and even trying jet skiing (just don’t get wet!).

Julia is survived by her husband Alex; six children, Sherry (Wayne) Roehrich, Minneapolis, Minn., LeRoy (Nancy), Bismarck, Janice (Joseph) Zachmeier, Mandan, Marcia (Kirk) Schauer, Bismarck, Steve (Kim), Bismarck and Brenda (Stephen) Bergan, Bismarck; 11 grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren.

Her parents preceded her in death; four brothers and four sisters; two grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
