Julie Ann Jungen, daughter of Oscar and Corrine (Goss) Anderson was born on February 26, 1945 in Rapid City, SD. As her father was getting discharged from the Army, they moved to Watertown and the family lived with his parents. When Julie was 8 her mother passed away and her grandmother Anna raised Julie and her brother, Leroy. Her grandmother was a wonderful, old fashioned grandmother whom Julie loved immensely.

When her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were born, it was a very special time in her life.
