Julianne “Curt” LeMay McNett, age 65, of Johnsburg, passed away on December 6, 2019, at Northwestern Medicine McHenry Hospital. Curt was born on December 12, 1953, in Hudson, WI, to Leonard J. and Viola A. (Ohmann) LeMay. Curt was united in marriage to Thomas McNett on January 21, 1990, in Las Vegas.
A very artistic woman, Curt was gifted in her ability to create art with her hands. In addition to gardening and needle work, Curt enjoyed gathering various sticks, flowers, and other items found in her yard, creating works of art from nature. Curt also played piano, guitar, and French horn.
Known for her big, wonderful heart that overflowed with love, Curt was an unwavering light in the life of anyone who knew her – family, friends, acquaintances, and strangers alike. Curt never fell short of letting those around her know she cared, whether it be remembering their birthday or bringing a game, puzzle, or dessert to all gatherings. She was a woman unlike any other, and she will be deeply missed by all who were lucky enough to know her.
Left to cherish her memory is her husband of nearly 30 years, Tom; her mother, Viola A. LeMay; siblings, Gary (Judy Zolldan) LeMay, Nita Kay (Dwight Aukee) LeMay, Ronald (Sheri Samolytz) LeMay; aunts and cousins; and two four legged loving companions, Hyatt and Angie.
Curt was preceded in death by her father, Leonard J. LeMay.
A Celebration of Life Open House will be held on Sunday, January 19, 2020 from noon until 3 p.m. at Heng Wing Restaurant, 121 W. Palatine Road, Palatine, IL 60067.
