Julie Ann Mathes was born May 11, 1965 in Chariton, Iowa to Gerald and Carol Mathes. She was the youngest of three children; her big brothers were Mike and Tim. They moved to Melcher when she was eight and attended school in Melcher-Dallas, graduating in 1983. After high school she worked for Farm Credit Services in the crop insurance department as an agent. She and Don Swanson started the Son Risk Management Company where they sold crop insurance independently until she was diagnosed with cancer in 2010. Julie enjoyed sewing and quilting. She was an excellent seamstress and made many quilts for her family and friends. She was very creative and skilled and used these talents to make many crafts including making wreaths and other decorations. She was a very independent and driven individual and once she set her mind to something there was no stopping her. Her greatest joys in life were her family and friends. Her sons, Danny and DJ were her pride and joy; and her grandson Dakota meant the whole world to her. Julie passed away November 21, 2017 after battling cancer. Surviving are her parents: Gerald and Carol Mathes; sons: Danny (Desi) Anderson, and DJ Anderson; grandson, Dakota Anderson; siblings: Mike (Izetta) Mathes and Tim (Kay) Mathes; her special friend, Perry Klages; and many nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.
