JULIE ZIEMKE, age 72, of Waseca died following a 7-year battle with cancer on Tuesday, July 4, 2023, at her home in Waseca surrounded by her loving family.

 

Born on May 9, 1951, in Waseca, she was the daughter of Stanley and Evelyn (Powell) Broughton. Julie was baptized as an infant and confirmed in her youth, both at Grace Lutheran Church in Waseca. She attended Waseca Public Schools, graduating with the class of 1969. Following her education Julie began working at Waseca Memorial Hospital. Later she worked at the Waseca Middle School and most recently for the City of Waseca Utilities department, where she worked for over 30 years before retiring in 2016.

She enjoyed playing bingo, visiting casinos, trips to Las Vegas, shopping,  going out to eat, and participating in progressive dinners at Christmas time with her girlfriends.

She cherished time spent with her family and friends. Most of all, she loved her time as “Grandma”, Julie’s grandchildren were the light of her life as family meant everything to her.
