Julie McKissen Kochevar

June 28, 1966 - October 18, 2021

On October 18, 2021, Julie McKissen Kochevar died in Grand Junction, at HopeWest Hospice Center, at the age of 55.

Julie is survived by her mother, Judy Rhyne Wuster, of Grand Junction; children: son, Matt Monger (Brandi); grandchildren, Aleena and Raeya; son, Ryan Elsberry; grandchildren, Paisley and Raxton; siblings, Karla (Gene) Coleman, of Grand Junction, and Ron (Lisa) Rhyne, of Pavillion, WY. Julie was preceded in death by her father, Laverne McKissen; brother, Mark Rhyne; step-father, Gary Wuster, and grandparents, Curtis and Anna Rhyne, and Welden and Lorene McKissen.

Julie was born on June 28, 1966, in Grand Junction, Colorado. She graduated from Central High School in 1984. She was known by her closest friends as a kind-hearted, giving, thoughtful, and genuine individual. One example of her kind heart is she selflessly donated a kidney to her mother-in-law. She cherished and loved spending time with her grandchildren, and enjoyed the outdoors and gardening.

Our family respects the wishes of Julie, and will not be holding services. Though Julie was a private person, she was an important part of her community and the loss of her is deeply felt by her family and so many lifelong friends.

The family asks that donations be sent to HopeWest Hospice, in lieu of flowers.
