Julene Diane Mondloch was born September 10, 1964 in Crosby, Minnesota the daughter of Gary and Gloria (Lound) Jensen. She graduated from Crosby-Ironton High School and went on to attend Bemidji Technical College. On February 6, 1988, Julie was united in marriage with Jeff Innes and later married Dean Mondloch on July 10, 1998. She spent many years working as a legal secretary including time spent with Rick Kreutzfeldt Attorney in Brainerd, Quinlivan & Hughes of St. Cloud, and most recently for the State of Minnesota Seventh Judicial Branch.
Julie's love for travel and adventure started when she was young with a month-long trip to Japan and many road trips. After children, that joy continued as she ventured on educational trips with them. She enjoyed reading, baking, and flower gardening. In October of 2013, Julie was diagnosed with Multiple System Atrophy. Through her difficult and courageous battle, Julie kept her wicked sense of humor. She continued to live life to the fullest, taking a dream motorcyle ride, hot air balloon ride, and bucket list trip to Alaska in 2016. She generously donated her brain to the Brain Support Network for further research on Multiple System Atrophy. Julie loved to dance and she taught us all how to dance through life!
