Julie Ellen Loberg was born July 3, 1947 in Mason City, Iowa. She was the second child and first daughter of Invald and Flavia (Hill) Loberg.
Julie graduated from Mason City High School in 1965 with honors and had completed coursework for a secretarial career. She briefly worked for the Braniff airline but quickly decided that a "flying waitress" job was not what she wanted for a career. Shortly thereafter Julie moved to Chicago, IL where she was employed in a legal office in that city.
After living in the big city for a while, she returned to Iowa and continued her career as a legal secretary with a law office in Waterloo, IA. Soon she would change careers to become a lead typesetter for the Pro Farmer magazine publisher in Cedar Falls. This is where I would meet her during a routine service call to make repairs on their photo typesetting equipment.
It wasn't long before she was on the move once again, to begin working for the Merrill Corporation in St. Paul, MN as a night shift supervisor. This was another important advancement in her career. Merrill Corp specialized in typesetting legal documents for presentation to the Securities & Exchange Commission in Washington DC. Working under tight deadlines and precise keyboarding of legalese were part of her job duties.
Several years later a better position at the University of Minnesota Printing Department became available when they installed new equipment. The printing and graphic arts department was looking for a skilled operator and they found this in Julie.
On September 3, 1977 we were married in Northwood, IA and we started to build a new home in Roseville, MN. We would spend the next 19 years together in that community.
As computer technology progressed, so did Julie's career. She became one of the first remote computer keyboard operators in the Twin Cities. She worked from our home, typing manuscripts and forwarding her work electronically over a dial-up computer link. Julie was especially skilled in foreign language and mathematical typesetting. The production managers knew they could count on her efficiency and skill so she would always get the "odd ball" and "tough" jobs that no one else would touch!
Julie became an important partner in our graphic arts based computer business. She managed all the customer service, financial details, and payroll. When she was not dealing with all the paperwork side of the business, she also devoted time to perform volunteer work at the Presbyterian retirement home in our neighborhood. She was recognized by that organization as an important contributor and was presented with several awards for her volunteer efforts.
You will see the images of two birds on her gravestone. During her lifetime she had no children, but she loved her many pets, including cats, dogs, gerbils, finches, an African Gray parrot, and a Blue & Gold macaw. Her two favorite birds were her Green Winged and Hyacinth macaws. These exotic birds traveled with her from Minnesota to California and back to Iowa during the last years of her life.
