Life Experience Before Death…
Julie was born to Donald and Marlys (Campbell) Harms on March 6, 1967. She attended Le Mars Community Schools and graduated with the class of 1985. Julie married Barry Sitzmann, Sr. on August 23, 1986. To this union four children were born; Barry James Jr. (BJ), Tyler James, Tiffany Rose, and Jordan Christopher. They later divorced.
Julie spent most of her adult life taking care of her family and running a daycare. She loved spending time with children and being known as the house where all the neighborhood kids would hang out. As her children grew, so did the number of kids that would stop by. All were welcome with a smile and hug, often followed by something to eat and drink. There are many of these children that thought of her as a second mom.
Julie loved volunteering for Gehlen Catholic School by running their concession stands for football and baseball/softball. She was her children’s biggest fan. Her whistle was hard to miss at any activity.
When her children were grown, Julie worked for American Bank, and most recently could be seen with a smile at Casey’s General Store in Le Mars.
Recently, Julie was enjoying being a grandma. You could see the love she had when it came to her grandchildren. She enjoyed her family suppers, playing cards with the kids and grandkids, and watching her grandkids in their activities.
Julie was a lover to all and a stranger to none. She will be remembered for her giving spirit. Often times she gave more than what she had. Her time and energy was spent more on others than herself, unfortunately to a fault, but nobody will ever fault her for that. Her time was best spent helping those in need. It was her kind and giving heart that will be missed the most. She was a woman of great faith in our Lord and was quick to offer a kind word and a prayer to those in need.
She was known to be very kind and will be deeply missed, however her impact and legacy will carry on for generations to come through her family and the numerous lives she has touched.
We pray that God grants those who are affected by this death the fortitude to carry on. Losing a beloved one is one of the most difficult feelings on earth. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the family members and friend.
