Julia Brooks, 22, passed away in her sleep on October 18, 2022. She leaves behind grieving parents, Michael and Rachael Brooks, two brothers, Nicholas and Tyler, her grandparents, David and Lynn Brooks and Charles and Elizabeth Kovats.
Julia was an amazing daughter, big sister, and granddaughter. She recently graduated from Carroll University with a Bachelor of Music degree and had a teaching license. She was currently teaching music and theatre at Washington Middle School in Kenosha. Throughout high school and college, Julia’s passion was music. She was in multiple choirs, band, orchestra, musical productions, and opera performances. Her love of music and desire to inspire children through music led her to become a music teacher. She had just begun her journey working with middle school children and already bonded with her new students. She had a gift for connecting with children and inspiring them through music and was looking forward to having children of her own someday.
It is so very sad to think of all the young musicians she would have encouraged and inspired if her journey would have continued. Her passion for the arts inspired creativity within many and brought out excellence in those whose paths she crossed. It is devastating to lose her. We will miss all that she would have created.
Julia, we love you and miss you so much. You touched so many lives. You will be truly missed by everyone who knew and loved you.
