Julie was born April 4, 1966 in Wadena to Ken & Karen (Sumey) Hudalla. She graduated from Sauk Rapids High School in 1984 and SCSU in 1989 with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Social Work. Julie worked as a medical social worker in Sauk Centre. She was a member of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church where she served as a lector. Julie Hudalla is now in Glory with her Lord and Savior, Jesus. She was injured in 1990 at the age of 24 suffering a broken neck after falling off of a horse. She has been quadriplegic and confined to a wheel chair for the past 25 years. She was very brave and independent. She loves Jesus and had incredible faith. God blessed her with a positive attitude throughout her life. God has now wiped away all of her tears and she no longer will experience sorrow, crying, or pain. She now is praising God and in perfect peace, dancing in Heaven on the streets of gold after putting on her new Glorified body, finally free of her handicap. Julie loved watching movies, cheerleading, horses and her cats Jinx and Buddy. She was very social and was a friend to everyone. Julie loved her family and cherished spending time with her nieces and nephew.

Survivors include her parents, Ken & Karen of Rice; brothers and sister, Mike (Noelle) of Staples, Chad (Marie) of Maple Grove, and Jodi (Chris) Belair of Rice; nieces and nephew, Brooke, William, Addison, and Amelia; and cats, Buddy and Jinx. She was preceded in death by her infant brother, Tommy; her grandparents; and her cat, Pookie.
