Daughter of Fredrick Theurer and Christina Schuler

Married Conrad Alder, 11 Dec 1899, Logan, Cache, Utah

Biography - Julia was born April 10, 1870, the daughter and 6th child (they had 10 children) of Fredrick and Christina Schuler Theurer in Providence, Utah.

For about 30 years Julia's father was either a counselor or the bishop for the Providence Ward for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Julia must have developed her leadership skills from her father, for she was an outstanding president of the Church's Relief Society for many years.

She also was very much the boss of the family, telling even the married sons what they needed to do. When her husband was called on a mission for the church they had 5 small children. They were better off financially when he came home than when he left.

While in her teen years, she and some of her family/cousin (the girls) spent her summers up in the Tony Grove area, in Logan, Utah canyon, tending and milking the cows. They then made the milk into cheese and butter. About weekly the boys would come up and haul the cheese and butter to the Salt Lake City market.

Julia had a large raspberry patch. She harvested the fruit and made raspberry jam. She was a good cook and made whatever by a handful of this, a pinch of that. Her cookies made with raspberry filling were yummy.

She developed diabetes, but refused to take insulin because she was terrified of needles. Diabetes was not well taken of at that time, and it contributed to her death on October 10, 1946. She will always be remembered for being so cuddly.
