It is with great sadness Julia Margaret Sink, nee Land, of Belleville, IL, born December 9, 1938, in Jessamine County, KY, passed away Tuesday, October 10, 2023, at Memorial Care Center, Belleville, IL.

Family and friends were very important to her, and she enjoyed spending time with them very much! Julie worked diligently as a registered nurse at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, Belleville, IL, for over 40 years. She cared deeply about her patients, their families, and her colleagues during her medical career.  Her heart of endless love for her family and friends will always remain in our hearts.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Edgar E. Land Jr., and Darlene Land Nisbet, nee Walden.

She is survived by her daughter, Laura L. Sink; her son, David A. Sink (fiancé Sharon Nikrant); and dear cousins and loved ones in Kentucky.

The family wishes to thank the wonderful doctors, nurses, and staff at Belleville Memorial Care Center, BJC Belleville Memorial and St. Louis Barnes Hospitals.  We are forever grateful for your knowledge, kindness, and support during an emotional and challenging time for us.

Memorials may be made to the Illinois Nurses Foundation www.illinoisnurses.foundation to the “Scholarship Fund – General”, or via USPS, P.O. Box 636, Manteno, IL  60950. Condolences may be expressed to the family online at www.rennerfh.com.
