Mary Jule Kulka was a dear friend for over 25 years. She was a amazing source of support to me and my husband. She spoke often of her daughter Hedy. Mary Jule was very proud Hedy and all of her accomplishments, including riding a motorcycle. Mary Jule loved life, lunches at her favorite Thai restaurants and shopping in the thrifts stores. Jim and I will miss her wisdom,

Mary Jule Kulka was truly a one of a kind, an amazing spirit of a woman, who brought so much joy and beauty into our lives.
I had the great fortune to meet Mary Jule when I interviewed her to be the Director of Health Services for our network of health clinics for migrant farm workers, where we worked together until she retired. I was always amazed to see that, even though she had no experience working with the Latin-x community and did not speak Spanish, Mary Jule had a special way to connect with her patients in important ways, with her bigger than life heart, and her special way of making her patients feel supported and cared for.
Mary Jule also was THE person that our clinic staff looked to for guidance as well, which speaks volumes about her knowledge, her wisdom, and her heart. Even after Mary Jule retired, we invited her to our annual staff retreats to inspire us to "keep on keepin' on."
While we are deeply saddened to learn of Mary Jule's passing, we want all to know, especially her daughter, Hedy, that we will never forget Mary Jule for her generosity, her spirit, her wisdom, her laugh, and for making our lives better for having know her.
Rest in peace, Dear Mary Jule. We will never forget you, and you will forever hold a special place in our hearts, and in the history of Community Health Partnership of Illinois.
Que en paz descanses,
