Julie Kay (Olson) Eberhardt, 63, of Jamestown, ND, passed away peacefully December 27th, 2022, surrounded by the love of her family.
She was born to the late John and Opal Olson, on August 27, 1959, in Fargo, ND. Julie graduated from Fargo North High School and received her degree in Fashion Merchandising from Moorhead Tech, MN.
Julie married Patrick Eberhardt, son of Jane and her late husband, Robert on July 11th, 1981 and they made their home in Jamestown, ND. Pat and Julie were blessed with four children: Melissa Benoit, of Tampa, Florida; PJ (Bjorn) Ringdahl, Jamestown, ND/Fergus Falls, MN; Bobbi (Jeremy) Forester, Jamestown, ND; and Josh (Kristi) Eberhardt, Jamestown, ND. Her biggest pride and joys were indeed her six grandchildren; Cole Babcock (20), Cullen Hardy (12), Aubrey Roth (7), Shaw Forester (4), Ryder Eberhardt (4) and the newest addition, Aspen Eberhardt (3 months). Julie was also known to many neighborhood kids as “Julie Mom”; she loved them all as her own. Everyone knew that not only was the door always open but there would be frozen pizza in the freezer and a warm bed waiting for them when they needed it.
Julie loved arts and crafts, especially with her grandchildren or “little’s” as she called them. She also enjoyed all things racing, attending the grandchildren’s sporting events, school performances, spending time at the lake, and visiting with her many friends and family. She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, Jamestown and a nearly thirty year employee of Sanford Health, Jamestown. Julie was immensely proud of her family and friends and leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories.
She is survived by her husband; 4 children; 3 “outlaws”; 6 grandchildren; mother-in-law; sisters, Jane Sellars, Joan Olson, and Judi (Rick) Kane; as well as many nieces and nephews. She will be greatly missed by her family and especially her six grandchildren.
Julie was preceded in death by her loving parents, John and Opal Olson; sister, Jean Olson; brother, Jeffrey Olson; brothers-in-law, Richard Sellars, Randy Wilson; and father-in-law, Robert Eberhardt.
