1949 - 2021
Julie A. Klawitter was born on March 13, 1949, in Hastings, Nebraska to Virginia and Linneus Stang, the oldest of six children. She passed away peacefully on Friday October 29, 2021, at the age of 72. Julie was a proud grandmother, supportive mother, loving wife, protective sister, aunt, and friend to many. She met her husband, Michael, in Milwaukee, WI, and raised her family in Arlington Heights, IL. Julie devoted her life to working hard and putting her children first. You never left Julie and Mike's home hungry or without feeling loved. Julie continued to tell all of those around her that she loved them all the way to the end of her life. She will be remembered for her extreme resilience, her strong work ethic, her funny antics, her loving spirit, and her ability to take it all on and make it look easy. Julie is survived by her loving children, Joseph (Kristen) Klawitter, David Klawitter, and Jennifer (Glenn) Piala; granddaughters, Josephine and Shaelyn Klawitter and grandson, Hunter Piala. She was preceded in death by her husband, Michael Klawitter; her brother, Jerry Stang; and her parents. Julie's family would like to extend extreme gratitude to her caregivers at Legacy Hospice, St. Rita's Square, and those that helped her maintain her independence in her apartment in Milwaukee. Julie loved each and every one of you, and she would not have done so well without you. A memorial service will be held Saturday, November 6th, 2021, at St. Rita's Church, 1617 N. Cass Street, Milwaukee, WI 53202 at 11:00 AM. Visitation will be held prior to the mass from 9:30-11:00 AM at St. Rita's Church. There will be light refreshments at St. Rita Square after the service for those that would like to visit with the family. A private interment will be held on Monday at Holy Cross Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make donations in Julie's name to the Alzheimer's Association or the American Cancer Society. Also, please continue to spread love to others in Julie's name. Our world needs more positivity.

My deepest sympathy for your loss. I was a neighbor of Julie at the Berkshire. I remember fondly her daughter Jennifer and her young son, Hunter, visiting. Other family members visited Julie often (I don't know all their names). Julie and her family were delightful to be around--always projecting an aura of positivity. They would pass by as I played the piano, and always paused to smile a hello. Again, my deepest sympathies.

Our hearts go out to Joe, David and Jennifer and the rest of the family. Everyone is correct, Julie always greeted you with a warm smile or a tight hug. Growing up on Kennicott in Arlington Heights was the best! And Mrs. Klawitter & Klawitter Family was a big part of that. From the times she would take us in her red station wagon to the Arlington beverage Company to pick out drinks or taking us to frontier days. Thank you Julie for the great memories.
