DeLap, Julia M. (9 JUN 1878 - 14 OCT 1935)

Julia Mary Halverson, daughter of Nels and Mary Halverson, was born in the town of Sterling, Vernon county, Wisconsin, on June 9, 1878. She was reared on her father’s farm and was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran faith. She was educated in the Viroqua schools and taught school in Vernon county for a number of years.

On Sept. 21, 1904, she was married to Charles Joseph DeLap of the town of Genoa, Vernon county. To this union were born three children: Harry of Cashton, Mrs. Clarence Aspenson and Mrs. Orvin Evenson, both of Viroqua.

She was a good Christian worker, a devoted wife and mother and a kind neighbor.

She passed away on October 14th, 1935, at the age of 57 years, 4 mo. and 5 days, after an illness of about four months. She was a patient sufferer and everything that medical treatment and loving kindness could do to make her comfortable during her illness was done, but her life could not be spared. Besides her family, she leaves to mourn her passing, three granddaughters: Mary Aspenson, Janice Evenson and Edith DeLap; a grandson three days old; also a sister, Mrs. Walter Gray of Loyal, Wis., and two brothers, Halver of the town of Sterling and Robert of Richland Center, and a host of other relatives and friends. Her parents, one sister and several brothers preceded her in death.

She will be sadly missed by all who knew her.

Funeral services were held Thursday, Oct. 17, at the home and at the Main Street Lutheran church, Rev. O. M. Kleven officiating.
