Julianne Catherine Terry

Julianne Catherine (Kuylen, Gretz) Terry, age 87, passed away peacefully on Monday, Sept. 23, 2019 in De Pere. She was born Oct. 28, 1931 in Sheboygan, to John and Norma Kuylen. She lived in the Sheboygan area through high school, then Milwaukee, Cudahy, New Berlin, and the rest of her years in Vilas County until her health challenges took her to De Pere for therapy and other care.

Julie spent many happy years as a homemaker, pediatrician’s assistant and dental assistant. She was an incredible cook and enjoyed preparing wonderful meals for family, friends and anyone that may have been in need of a kind gesture. She just loved visiting with friends and new acquaintances and helping many through tough personal times.

She loved the outdoors and especially enjoyed fishing with her husband Ralph Terry. They were very happily married for 25 years until his passing in 2009. Her last 40-plus years were spent in the beauty and serenity of the Wisconsin Northwoods — Manitowish Waters, Minocqua and Woodruff.

Julianne is survived by her daughter Wendy (Bob) Femia, son John (Rose) Gretz, daughter Laura Clark, son-in-law Bruce Clark; stepdaughter Kathy (Herbert) Rieckmann.  She is also survived by six grandchildren; Ryan (Heather) Rosplock, Kristen (Robert) Bouton, Taylor (Kristin) Clark, Jordan (fiancé Janie) Clark, J’Nine Gretz, Charles Rieckmann. Julianne was blessed with seven great-grandchildren; Tyler, Hunter, Kyle, Braelyn, Zander, Adeline and Delia, along with two step-great grandchildren Riley and Avery.  

Her love for family, friends and animals was endless. She will continue to watch over them always.

Julianne was blessed with wonderful friendships in the Wisconsin Northwoods who continued to keep in touch, and we thank them. The family also wants to extend a special thank you to the wonderful therapists and staff at Rennes Rehab in De Pere, Angel’s Touch Assisted Living in De Pere and Aseracare Hospice in De Pere who provided compassionate comfort during her final two weeks of life, and support to our family.  

Bolger Cremation and Funeral Services of Minocqua and Woodruff is serving the family.
