Akey, Julie M.

Julie M. Akey, age 60, of Wisconsin Rapids, WI died Friday, April 28, 2017 at Atrium Post Acute Care, Wisconsin Rapids, WI.

Funeral Services are 11:00 AM Saturday, May 6, 2017 at Ritchay Funeral Home in Wisconsin Rapids, WI. Father Valentine Joseph will officiate. The family will greet relatives and friends at Ritchay Funeral Home on Saturday from 9:30-11:00 AM. Burial will be at Calvary Cemetery.

Julie was born December 2, 1956 in Wisconsin Rapids, WI to Charles and Shirley (Nash) Akey. She worked for the Wood County Planning & Zoning Commission for 41 years retiring in December 2016.

Julie was a very family-oriented person. She was a generous giver to all her loved ones and enjoyed watching other people smile with excitement. She loved researching and making fancy new recipes for holidays, making costumes or decorations for parties, and going to family events. The list was endless of the ways she showed her love for others with her time, talents or gifts. Julie was also an avid traveler. Some of her favorite places to go on vacations included Door County, San Francisco, St. Louis, Tennessee, Disney theme parks, and cruise ships. Julie was very fond of animals and especially loved to spoil any of the family pets. She will be missed dearly by her family and friends.

Julie is survived by her mother, Shirley Akey of Wisconsin Rapids, WI; sister, Debbee (Tim) Christensen of Wisconsin Rapids, WI; two nieces, Tori (Chris) Smith of Wauwatosa, WI and Katy (Justin) Jessen of Minnesota City, MN and one great nephew, Keegan Smith.

Julie was preceded in death by her father, Charles and sister, Linda Morehouse.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial bench will be established in her honor, to remind us all to take a break and enjoy all of the beautiful things life has to offer.
