Julie Ann Knopp Mohr, Age: 64
Apr 20, 1956 - Nov 18, 2020

Julie Ann Knopp (Mohr), age 64, passed away on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, at the Kansas City Hospice House. She is survived by her husband of 35 years, Randy Mohr, her two sons; Garrett and Aaron Mohr, her daughter in law Kelly, and two grandchildren, Harrison and Lola all of Smithville, Missouri. Her sister Kristie Knopp (Tang) and her brother Paul Knopp of Lincoln, Nebraska.

Julie was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, to Lee Knopp and Maylene Bellairs (Knopp), and attended Northeast High School, where she lettered in gymnastics. Soon after high school, Julie joined the Air Force, and after basic training at Lackland Air Force Base, was stationed at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

After the Air Force, she attended Nebraska Wesleyan University, and received a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts Degree. Julie loved drawing and painting, but most of all making jewelry in her studio in downtown Lincoln.

Julie was a great wife, mother, cook and grandmother. She was Facebook before it’s invention, and could go into a room full of strangers and come out knowing their stories and have made new friends, which there was never a shortage of. Her home was always welcome to friends and family, with lots of food, drink and laughter. Julie will be deeply missed.

Special thanks to the Kansas City Hospice and Palliative Care team for taking such good care of Julie.

I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember my youth playing with Garret and Arron. Julie was so kind and always happy. Those are very cherished memories. I pray your pain and heartache to be lessened and to find peace. I know loss hurts from personal experience and while it never goes away it does get better with time. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

So sad to hear of this. Julie you were an amazing friend and neighbor. My mother loved you to pieces, you were her rock! You were such a fighter til the end. You are now no longer suffering but with your maker. May God wrap his arms around Randy and the boys.

Julie you are one of a kind. Indeed your laughter and smile lit up a room and your kindness had no boundaries.. it went on forever. You never met a stranger. When you became a wife and later a Mom I’d never seen you more happy or joyful. You drew people like a moth to a flame. Made us laugh, fed us and celebrated with us. You’re my best friend, I love you and you’ll be in my heart forever.

I was lucky enough to meet Julie at KU Cancer Center on Green Hills back in 2015. Julie was a blessing to me and so very many. Her smile was infectious. I am heartbroken to find out she is not her with us anymore. On to bigger and better things Julie. RIP my friend until we will meet again. -Jillian
