Julie Mau Kennedy, Former Verona Resident

By on August 3, 2017

Julie MauJulie Mau Kennedy, of Montclair, passed away at home after a long struggle with depression.

Julie was born on January 27, 1952 in Glen Ridge and was raised in Verona. She was a graduate of Montclair State College, and was the co-owner of Garage Sale Antiques in Montclair for over 30 years. Julie was a Friend of Bill, and always helped newcomers and those who struggled.

She was predeceased by her parents Anne Farrar Mau and Andrew M. Mau Jr., her beloved brother Drew, and her husband Robert Kerr. Surviving are Greg and Linda Mau and their children Michelle and Andrea Mau, all of Verona, Thomas Mau of Clinton, N.J., Carla Mau of Lambertville, N.J., and Teresa and Paul Klein and their children Andrew and Jamie Klein of Blairstown, N.J.

Julie will always be remembered for taking care of others, her sense of humor and fun, her artistic ability, her purposely complete inability to cook anything edible, and her eclectic sense of style and décor. We are heartbroken that she found life too difficult to continue, and hope that she is at peace now and forever.

    Very sad about Julie’s death. I was in Verona High with her she was an angel to all. I deal with depression so I can see what it does. I’m very sad she was a wonderful person.

    Julie will be missed by all. I lived with Julie after High School and she always made me laugh. I reconnected with Jules a few years ago and was shocked and saddened by her sudden death but I understand depression and what it can do to you. I believe she wanted to be with her one true love and that she will meet him in heaven. Rest in peace dear friend….
