Julie was born in Milton, Fla., on Feb. 26, 1970, the daughter of Bill and Gloria (Wyssman) Schlachter. She grew up in Grand Island, attending Trinity Lutheran and Northwest High School, completing her education at Grace University. Baptized March of 1970 in the Lutheran faith, Julie was an active member of Peace Lutheran Church. Her faith was very important to her and it showed in her everyday life.
On Dec. 19, 1992, Julie married Kevin Splattstoesser and the couple made their home in Alda. She and Kevin combined their families, giving them five sons. Julie lived for her boys. She was a "presence" at their functions and games and so proud to be their mother.
Julie was a planner and an organizer. She loved to initiate or be a part of events such as Race for Grace, Relay for Life, ALS Walk and Walk for Lymphoma, and was a delegate for Heartland Lutheran High School. She had been employed by St. Francis Hospital for many years and was employed as a Clinical Research Coordinator at CHI Health Cancer Treatment Center at the time of her death. Julie also loved her job with Prairie Creek Winery in Central City.
Julie always went above and beyond, putting everyone before herself. Loving and giving is how those who knew Julie will remember her. She loved crafting and creating for others.
Those who will cherish Julie's memory include her husband, Kevin; sons, Logan (Kelsey) Splattstoesser, Isac (Tara) Splattstoesser, Noah Splattstoesser, Josh (Megan) Splattstoesser and Luke (Sarah) Splattstoesser; three grandchildren, Mason, Reagan and Ramsey; her parents, Bill and Gloria Schlachter; grandfather, Harlan Schlachter; and sisters, Jill (TJ) Jones and Janeece (Jason) Chohon.
Other survivors include nieces, Kambria, Alexa, Isabel, Meghan, Sarah, Aime and Kelly, and nephews, Travis, Troy, Casey and Cody.
She was preceded in death by grandparents, Eldo and Berniece Wyssman and Gloria Schlachter, and fathers-in-law, Harold Splattstoesser and Lou Bolles.
Memorials are suggested to the family to be designated at a later date.

Wishing sympathy for Julie and her Family this afternoon. I met Julie when my father had cancer at CHI Cancer Center. I had taken him in for chemo and she asked for my name so she could call for me when Dad was done. She had the biggest, prettiest smile and so kind. She asked if I knew this certain girl and I told her she was my Daughter. She told me that she had gone to Northwest with my Daughter and both knew each other from school! I knew they had to have known each other from before. You have my deepest sympathy, Julie was a smart young lady, loved by all! The patients at CHI Cancer Center will miss her beautiful, kind face. Julie had faced a lot of patients that came in for treatment, and a lot that never came back. She was strong willed so she could be there when they came back for their next treatment. Julie will be greatly missed.

Bill & Gloria, what a difficult time for you. It is surely these times we walk the closest with Jesus. It is these times we draw close to God as a loving father who also lost a child. May His strength and love draw you to Him, bring you comfort and give you the assurance you will see Julie again
