Julie worked several jobs before finding her passion in child care. Julie married John L. Anibas on November 8, 1980 at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Arkansaw. After marriage, they resided in Eau Galle where she farmed, provided day care and most recently Julie and John were the owners of the Eau Galle Saloon in Eau Galle. On June 3, 1990, Julie and John were gifted with their adopted son Cj.

Julie enjoyed working in her flower gardens, crafts, fishing, 4-wheeling and just being outdoors. Most of all Julie loved to spend time with her family.
