Julie (Birkhofer) Curry was born in Omaha, and grew up in Gretna until her father transferred to St. Louis, Missouri when the General Motors plant closed in Omaha.  She graduated from St. Charles High School in Missouri and joined the US Navy in 1981, and for the next 10 years, served on the East Coast at various bases as a Data Processing Technician, her favorite being aboard the sub tender, L.Y. Spear stationed out of Norfolk, Virginia.  In 1986, she married her husband Deno Curry, in Virginia Beach, VA.  He was also a Navy Veteran, and they started a family in 1993 with the birth of their daughter, Rachel, and then their son, William, being born in 1996.  When Deno retired from the military, the family decided to move back to Omaha, so that the kids would be able to be near grandparents and other family members.
               Julie began working for Reichmuth Funeral Home in January 1999, and has enjoyed the flexibility of working for a family owned business.  She claims that all her life experience prior to joining Reichmuth’s has really helped her enjoy a job that allows her to do something different every day, helping to prepare for funeral services, working with different families and the dynamics that come with them make her job interesting and satisfying.
