Julie Lynn Minardi, age 59, passed away on Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017 in Sebring, Florida. Born Sept. 3, 1958 to parents Nancy and Charlie, she was the middle child of five, and their only daughter. In life, Julie is best remembered as a sensitive and empathetic soul, with an infectious smile and great sense of humor. She met the trials and challenges of life head-on, and exuded strength and confidence no matter where she went.

Julie is survived by her daughters, Jessica Morgan and Kristen Galleher; her son, Michael Rodriguez; grandchildren, Kali Milam, Jayci Santiago and Daelon Rodriguez; her father, Charlie Minardi; her brothers, Dean, David, and Stephen Minardi; and countless others who were blessed to know her in life. In passing, she is reunited with her loving husband, Daniel “Danny” Rodriguez; mother, Nancy Minardi; and brother, Joseph Minardi.
