Julie "Nell" Anne Kappes

November 19, 1967 ~ February 21, 2018 (age 50)

     Julie “Nell” Anne Kappes, age 50, passed away Wednesday February 21 at St Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis.  She was born the daughter of Richard and Judy (Peace) Kappes on November 19, 1967.  She grew up outside of Osgood along with her brothers and sisters.  She attended the Ripley-Ohio-Dearborn School network in Sunman, until the age of 18.  Her school days were cherished memories of learning and friendships.

     Julie was a lady that didn’t speak often, however, her silence spoke volumes when she shared her ideals of love and family.   Early on she developed a passion for music, with early on favorites being the theme to Sesame Street or a Christmas favorite, “10,000 Santa Clauses”.  It was said she could place the needle of the record player directly on the 78 records, and the songs would play over and over.  That passion would grow as she enjoyed listening to Mozart and Johnny Horton.  If you visited her at home or lived with her you understood her obsession was for everything to have its place without exception.

     She will always be remembered as Daddy’s little girl, and his passing left a void in her heart.  Family to her was truly her most vital asset and she deeply loved and felt comfort in being with them.  The family get togethers included meals providing for her favorite pasta or sausage, and always a good cup of coffee.

     Julie will be dearly missed by her mother Judy, brothers Robert and Richard, sister Lisa (Randy) Sizemore, along with nephews Eric and Dakota, nieces Miranda and Patience, and great nephew Layton.  She was preceded in death by her father, Richard.

     Visitation will be held on Saturday, February 24, 2018 from 12:00-2:00 pm., at Neal’s Funeral Home in Osgood, with Funeral services being held at 2:00 pm, also at Neal’s Funeral Home.  Memorials may be made to Saint John the Baptist Catholic Cemetery in care of the funeral home.
