Still can't believe Julie is gone. We worked together at RRD for 3 years and then stayed connected after I left. We got together with a group from RRD for dinner and to play bingo in Elburn. She was so proud of Stephen. She loved to give us updates on how he was doing. Keeping her family in our prayers. We miss you Julie.

Julie was truly a bright ray of sunshine in our lives! We feel so honored to have met her through Mitch and got to know her over these past two and a half years. She was so gracious, kind, thoughtful, engaging, smart, patient, funny, encouraging and so much more - many wonderfully beautiful qualities embodied in a single person. I loved how she would always buy a special soda or juice for our teens, whether or not they actually joined us! Always thinking of others... Our sincere condolences to her son, Steven, her two sisters, and all those who loved her and knew her. The world lost a beautiful person, and heaven gained a bright and ever-shining star.

As a co-worker of Julie she will be truly missed. As our postage expert at RRD Julie was always very helpful whenever needed. We would always chat about only having a son and our love for crocheting. Rest in heavenly Julie!
