On May 16th, Julie Ann Helzer went to God after a courageous and determined battle with cancer. She left from her favorite place on earth, her home with her mother, sister, and 2 Persian cats supporting her.
Julie was born the second of four children in Cedar Rapids, Iowa to Norbert and Lois (Prochaska) Salz. Growing up, she had the knack of making friends, which served her in good stead, as the family moved many times. Her father's work in the car business provided her a profession as well. She was a title clerk and bookkeeper for a number of car companies and eventually mineral-related operations.
On Christmas eve 1984, Julie married Timothy Helzer in a home wedding here in Casper. Much to their disappointment, the couple had no children, and Tim died before her. They did have a number of much-loved furry children.
Julie's father and brother Kelly preceded her in death. She is survived by her mother, sister Sue Salz, brother Casey (Sandy) Salz, three nieces, 2 nephews, a grandniece, and a grandnephew soon to appear.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date, and memorials can be made in Julie's name to a charity of the donor's choice.
