|Birth:||10 September 1909|
|Age:||111 years, 276 days|
Dennis was born in Hancock, Michigan, USA, on 10 September 1909 to Frederick and Anna (Erickson) Carlson. Her parents were charter members of the Swedish Lutheran Church (Salem Lutheran Church) which was one of the congregations that formed Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in 1970. She married Paul Dennis in 1930 and they had a son, Lowell, who was born in 1938.
Dennis worked as an accountant until she was 70, but kept a few clients up until she turned 90. She cleared snow until the age of 100. At 105, she moved out of her home into a long-term care facility in Michigan, USA. For her 108th birthday, the Keweenaw Brewing Company created a special beer called "Julia 108", and Dennis was involved in the project. She celebrated her 111th birthday in September 2020.
