While watching Vikings’ games on TV, she would try to communicate with the Vikings coach and players and at times became somewhat animated. She enjoyed feeding and watching birds, along with other animals in her back yard in Redwood Falls. She loved having visitors and grilling. She especially loved when grandchildren came to spend the weekend, whether it was playing card or board games, making snow angels in the front yard or drawing chalk figures in the drive way with them. Juli is survived by her husband, Dan, and the father of her children, daughter, Shanon Lott (special friend Jared Zamzow) of Lafayette, daughter, Jill (Joe) Eaton of Gibbon, son, Dustin Reinhart (special friend Cassie Torres) of Fairmont, and daughter, Anna (Eli) Hughes of New Ulm.
