Age 90, of Greenville, went to her heavenly home on Wednesday, July 18, 2012. She was born on May 28, 1922 in the Town of Dale, daughter of the late Roy and Elizabeth (Hanselman) Diley. Virginia was a 1940 graduate of Washington Senior High School, New London. On October 26, 1946, she was united in marriage to Norman B. Julius at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Greenville. While working side by side with Norman on the family dairy farm, she also found time to always be there for family and friends when needed. Virginia enjoyed spending time at their cottage in Three Lakes, snowmobiling, motorcycling around the country, trips to Arizona, crafting and woodcarving. She volunteered many hours helping organizations in the Greenville Community. She was a member of the Greenville Women's Club, Greenville Homemakers, the Greenville Sesquicentennial Committee and Immanuel Lutheran Church.
She is survived by her husband of 65 years, Norman; daughter: Linda (Richard) Kester, Pearce, AZ; daughter-in-law: Diane Julius, Greenville; grandchildren: Ryan (Stephanie) Julius, Greenville; Craig (Sarah) Julius, Greenville; Kara Julius, Greenville and her fiancé Joe Wittlin, Appleton; two great-grandchildren: Jackson and Masen Julius; two step great-grandchildren: Levi and Layna Ritchie; two sisters: Jean (Kenneth) Fredricks, Fremont; Nila (Adrian) Sommer, Three Lakes; sister-in-law: Dorothy Asmus, Winneconne.

She was preceded in death by two sons; David "Dave" Julius in December 2010 and an infant son at birth, brother Warren Diley, brother-in-law Arlen Asmus, and sisters-in-law Mabel Diley and Phyllis Diley.
