During Julie's life her daughters Jodie, Suzette and Christen found their homes in the places she lived. Following the birth of youngest daughter Suzette, she returned to Wisconsin for a time, and then returned to Las Vegas to drive limos again.
Julie was an opinionated and sassy, energetic, hard-working woman, who found strength in her grit and determination. She was kindhearted and always thought of others above herself. She was filled with compassion for all around her.
She will forever be remembered for being someone who would give a friend the shirt off her back.
Julie is survived by her daughters: Jodie (Sarah) Schmidt, Christen Schultz, Suzette Monique; grandchildren: Joshua (Brittany) Schmidt, Jessica (Brennan) Rosenow, Jacob Schmidt, Jordan Schmidt, Alyssa Leick, Travis Leick, Madison Lee, Taylor Ray, Gia Cicchinelli; and great grandchildren: Lil' Lyle and Ahmari. She is further survived by her siblings: Jon (Debbie) Ponedel, Joel (Vicki) Ponedel, Tracie Morgan, Tami Morgan, Torre (Nicki) Morgan and best friend who was like a brother Larry (Tonya) Noack. Julie’s nightly snuggles will also be greatly missed by her dog Nerf and grandcat Floyd.
She was preceded in death by her husband Dennis and her parents Robert and Arlene.
