Kaminski, Julie Born in Chicago, Illinois on November 23, 1969, passed away peacefully on April 20, 2021.

She was the beloved daughter of the late LeRoy F. Kaminski Jr. and Vivian "Gail" Willis. Loved Granddaughter of the late LeRoy F. Kaminski Sr. (Geraldine) and Harry Willis (Marian). Loving Sister of LeRoy F. Kaminski III (Tammy), Mark Kaminski, and John Kaminski (Stacey). Half Sister to Charles Kaminski (Michelle) and Timothy Kaminski.

She was the Treasured Aunt of Kylee Gail, Tyler, Jennifer and Charlee who she adored unconditionally.

Julie leaves behind many Aunts, Uncles and Cousins that she Cherished and Loved deeply. She also leaves behind her two canines, that she Loved with all her heart and alway's referred to them as her children.

Julie's smile, warm heart, and loving personality will be missed by all who were fortunate to know and love her, and although Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.

No farewell words were spoken, no time to say good-bye. You were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why. Our hearts ache in sadness, and secret tears will flow. What it means to lose you, no one will ever know.

Julie and I became great friends in 2017 and the 1st day she seen me she remembered when I was just a little toddler telling me stories about my family. We have been Inseparable since that day. Every other week back and forth to Indiana to see her. Trips back and forth to the city for Dr. Appointments. In September of 2019 she gave me one of her puppies who will be 2yrs old this June 2021. Any time we talked whether it was over the phone or through text, she always asked how her Grandpup Rocco was doing and loved that I sent her pictures of him all the time. She was and always will be like an aunt to me. She had the best personality and made everyone smile every second. I will miss her dearly. She truly was an Angel here on earth. We will love you forever our Guardian Angel.

I loved spending time with Julie, which is why I used to go out of my way to drive from Bridgeport to Gary Indiana to take her grocery shopping. Sometimes it was at Fairplay and sometimes at Meyers in Indiana.
She was a wonderful soul, a wonderful human being, and a very warm woman. We had so much fun when I was driving her wherever she needed to go. We would be talking and laughing almost the entire time and I will miss her company and our trips.

God Bless you Julie, and I shed tears for you being gone so young and so quickly that I never got to talk to you again since a couple of days before my birthday in April. Your sense of humor and warm heart will be what I miss so much!!!! I know you are with Jesus now as we always talked about and I miss you!!!!
