Julianne Bryan, age 34, of Neillsville, WI, passed away Saturday, April 9, 2022, at the Marshfield Medical Center in Marshfield, WI. Julie fought a brave and inspiring battle against ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease).

Julianne Marie BryanJulie was born on February 3, 1988, in Princeton, MN, the daughter of Randy and Theresa (Hetchler) Black. She had four brothers whom she loved very much. When Julie was 6, her mother remarried, Arnold Grebinoski, and her family moved to Sartell, MN. It was here she met Rachael DeSomma, her best friend. Julie graduated from Neillsville High School in 2006. She had twin boys she adored. In January of 2013, she married David Bryan Jr., who had two young sons of his own. They went on to have a son and then another set of twins — girls this time.

Julie had always dreamed of being a mom! She was the most loving mother her young family could ask for. Always doing activities with them, especially anything involving water. She enjoyed spending time with her girlfriends and left them with this motto: “Stay wild”!

Julie had the best smile ever….It lit up a room! She always had that smile in spite of her condition.

Julie loved her husband, and he adored her. He proved his love by caring for her right up to the very end.

Julie’s family would like to thank all the staff at Marshfield Medical Center who tirelessly cared for her for so many months. They would also like to thank the ALS Association for all they provided to make Julianne’s life more manageable.
