Julia J. Elliget, 75, of Portage and formerly of Battle Creek, died January 6, 2015 at Bronson Methodist Hospital, Kalamazoo.  Julia died, comforted by sister Kathryn, of an enduring respiratory illness.  

She was born December 15, 1939 in Coldwater to Edwin J. and Josephine (Barlet) Elliget.  She graduated from St. Philip Catholic High School in 1958 and attended Kellogg Community College.  Julia was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church, Kalamazoo, and her special hobby was art.

Surviving are sister, Dr. Kathryn Elliget; and brother, James B. Elliget both of Annapolis, Maryland; and several loving nieces and nephews.  She was preceded in death by her parents, two sisters, a brother, and three nephews.  Julie will be remembered most for her warm personality, quick wit, and sharp intellect.  

Special thanks to caregivers of the Kalamazoo community mental health system and critical care Bronson Hospital.  A graveside service is planned for a later date at Memorial Park Cemetery.  Memorials may be made to Schizophrenia.com, The Mental Health Research Association.

The family is being served by Shaw Funeral Home.
