Julia G. Halweg, 94, of Baraboo, passed away Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017, at Meadow View Assisted Living.

She was born Feb. 16, 1923, in Kendallville, Iowa. Her parents, George and Gusta (Moe) Winnaberg, brought Julia to holy baptism and confirmation at an early age.

She was united in marriage to Robert Halweg on May 12, 1945, at the Christ Lutheran Church Parsonage in the town of Greenfield by Rev. G. E.

In 1975, they left the farm and moved to Baraboo where they built a new home. In 2001, they transferred their church membership to St. John’s Lutheran Church in Baraboo. Julia had been an active member of the Sauk County Homemakers Club and loved flowers, gardening and sewing.

Surviving are her sisters-in-law, Helen Wick of Baraboo and Muriel Halweg of Merrimac; nieces, nephews and many friends.
