Julie Ellen Vraney, a devoted wife, mother, sister, and friend, passed away peacefully on August 24, 2023, in Lake Forest, at the age of 59. Born in Chicago on June 3, 1964, Julie brought joy, laughter, and love into the lives of everyone she met.
Julie was a woman of many talents and interests. She had an unquenchable passion for crafting and painting, creating countless beautiful pieces that reflected her love for life and the beauty of nature. She also had a green thumb, pouring her love and care into her garden, where she nurtured an array of flowers and plants. Julie's love for the outdoors was infectious, and she spent many happy hours exploring nature with her family and friends.
Julie started her career at McDonald's, where she met the love of her life, Joe, 41 years ago. Their love story is one that many aspire to have, filled with shared dreams, mutual respect, and unwavering support. Later in her career, Julie transitioned into in-home health care, where she found great fulfillment in taking care of others, exhibiting her natural nurturing and compassionate nature.
Survived by her loving husband Joe, her three sons Adam, Robert, and Steven, her sister Angela, and her brothers Jimmy and David, Julie's legacy of love and kindness will continue to live on in their hearts. She was a loving, friendly, and thoughtful person, always putting the needs of others before her own. Her bright spirit, warm smile, and caring heart will be deeply missed but fondly remembered.
As the famous author, Maya Angelou once said, "People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." This quote resonates deeply when thinking of Julie. She had a unique ability to make everyone around her feel loved, appreciated, and special. Her radiant spirit and the love she shared will be remembered by all who had the privilege of knowing her.
Julie's life was a testament to the power of love, kindness, and compassion. Her unwavering positivity, even in the face of adversity, was an inspiration to all who knew her. She lived her life with a sense of purpose and joy, spreading happiness wherever she went.
In closing, we remember Julie not just for the many roles she played in life - a loving wife, a caring mother, a doting sister, a trusted friend - but also for the beautiful soul that she was. Her memory will forever be a beacon of light and love in our hearts. May her soul rest in peace. In lieu of flowers memorials in Julie's name would be appreciated to: Animal House Shelter 13005 Ernesti Rd., Huntley, Il 60142.
