As Julie got older she re-met Jim Roelofs, who she first met when she moved to Placer County. Julie and Jim married in July of 1987. They built their homes together and spent lots of time outdoors; camping, around water, and taking care of more animals. In 2005, Julie and Jim started their family and adopted their daughter Ever.
Julie was a kind and loving woman. Her nieces and nephews always wanted to spend time with their Aunt Juju; riding horses and doing arts and crafts. She always had something to do with them.
