Julia Leanne Dailey was, first and foremost, in love with her Lord Jesus! Everyone who knew her knew of her deep, unwavering faith and trust in God. She was called home to heaven on May 26, 2021 at age 72 after a years long battle with cancer that she faced with amazing grace, humor and indomitable strength. Julia was the most fearless and caring mother, sister, grandmother, great grandmother and friend one could ever hope to know.
Julia was the second of four children born in Kansas City, Missouri on November 9, 1948 to loving parents Mary Ann and Thomas Joseph Dailey Jr. Her oldest sister Patti Anne, born with special needs and challenging health issues, was her very best friend during early childhood and was forever missed and longed for after her young passing. Julia became the oldest sibling to beloved brother Thomas Joseph and adored youngest sister, Jennifer Lynne.
Julia fell madly in love at a young age and soon gave birth to her daughter, Angella Anne and son, Michael Keith (her little owl). Never shying away from a hard path with a fulfilling life, Julia worked her way through college while maintaining a full time corporate job and raising her two young children. Julia had an expansive desire to experience life and chose multiple careers. She excelled as an executive assistant in the corporate world and inspired and fulfilled many dreams as a successful real estate agent. Julia always had a deep love of people, nature and God and traveled the world in search of these experiences and moments.
Above all, Julia sought deep connections to those she both randomly met and fiercely loved. She was that rare sparkle of a human being who could strike up a conversation with an absolute stranger and within moments make them feel as if she were a long lost friend. She nurtured the relationships she had with her children, family and friends with an intensity of support and loving words that could make one feel immensely valued and cared for. Her laugh was deep and real and came from the center of her expansive heart. She was a fiercely supportive mother, sibling, friend and patriot who sparkled her way through this life. She will be deeply missed by her daughter Angella, adoring son Michael, brother Thomas, sister Jennifer, grandson Keith, granddaughters Tara, Skyanne, Sierra, Cassidy and Shayenne, great grandsons Ethan and Jaxston and her amazing friends whom she deeply and truly loved.
