April 19, 1995 Oklahoma City Bombing Victim. Julie Welch was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. After high school, Julie went to Wisconsin and attended college at Marquette University in Milwaukee, earning a B.A. in Spanish. Although her parents were divorced, she kept in close touch with both of them while attending college. After graduating, she traveled overseas to sharpen her Spanish communication skills, then returned to Oklahoma City where she was hired as an interpreter for the Social Security Administration in the Alfred P. Murrah Building. During her travels, she developed a strong compassion for those less fortunate than herself. She frequently visited Little Flowers Church, in a poor Hispanic region of Oklahoma City, where she could speak with the Hispanic children and give them a ray of hope for their future. Julie's own hope was to marry a lieutenant whom she met at Tinker Air Force Base, but the terror of April 19, 1995 shattered her dreams. While engaged in an appointment with two Mexican men, the bomb went off, killing her and her clients along with 165 others.
