Julie A. Klein

Julie Ann Klein was born on November 12, 1949 to Agatha and Edmund Bohlke in Slayton, Minnesota. She graduated from high school in 1967 from Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic School in Wilmont, Minnesota. On February 1, 1969, Julie married Dennis Klein. The couple made their home in Westbrook, Minnesota, for three years and moved to Iona in 1972. Julie was a busy mom and farmwife, helping Dennis with farming while also working at Huiskens/Monogram Meat in Chandler, Minnesota. In 2013, she moved to Luverne, Minnesota, after retiring from Huiskens. While in Luverne, Julie worked part-time at the Senior Center as an assistant cook, volunteered at church sewing several quilts for missions, and volunteered at Redeemed Remnants Thrift Store. On Friday, November 10, 2023 Julie died peacefully at her home at the age of 73 years, 11 months and 29 days. 

Julie was a member of St. Catherine Catholic Church in Luverne. Her favorite hobbies were quilting, playing cards (Hand & Foot and Pinochle), cooking, canning food, sewing, exercising and gardening. She also loved baking cookies and Christmas goodies, making crafts with grandkids, puzzles and cooking holiday meals.

Julie is lovingly remembered by her husband, Dennis; their children, Michelle Lake (Lance) of Ozark, Missouri, Brenda Winter (Cory) of Brandon, South Dakota,  Katherine Klein (Dale Kalas) of Madison, Minnesota, Emily Johnson (Matt) of Dunnellon, Florida; six grandchildren, Cheyenne, John, Alexis, Madison, Carter and Brianna; two great-grandchildren, Clayton and Adeline; and eight brothers & sisters. Julie was preceded in death by her parents, Agatha and Edmund Bohlke; and two brothers, Kenny Bohlke and Charles Bohlke.
