Julie Ann Severson, 57, beloved Mom, Nana and baby Sister,
passed away on Wednesday, July 24, 2019 at The Neighbors of
Dunn County, in Menomonie, WI. She was born on April 6, 1962 in
Stanley, WI, the daughter of the late Leonard and Margaret
(Diebel) Severson. Julie graduated from Stanley High School in
1980. She went on to serve her country in the Marines.
Julie worked at the Northern Center in Chippewa Falls for many
years. She enjoyed bird watching, reading and loved her cats
Simon and Harvey and the Green Bay Packers.
She was a great friend to so many. Her smile and laugh would light
up a room. Her love for her family knew no bounds, and although
she could be a “bit” stubborn and liked things her way. If you were
a friend or family and needed her, she would be there. She had a
unique ability to find beauty in the obscure.
To the end, she never lost her ability to impart humor to those
around her, even while fighting the debilitating effects of ALS.
There are no words to describe how much she will be missed.
She is survived by her son Ray (Rachel) Michael of Kenosha, two
granddaughters Ariana and Addison Michael, whom she adored;
her brother Lane Severson of Boyd, sisters Rhonda (Gene) Barta
of San Antonio, TX, Sandi (Bob) Cox of Stanley and Deb Bergeron
of Bloomer, and her “Bestie” Teri Friedel . Julie is preceded in
death by her parents and one brother Bruce Severson.
A celebration of life will be held at 11 a.m. August 2, 2019 at
Plombon Funeral Home- Stanley. Visitation will be on Thursday,
August 1, 2019 from 4-7 p.m. and one hour prior to the service on
Friday. In Lieu of flowers memorials are appreciated to ALS
