Julie Brady

Friday, Apr 4, 2014

* I didn’t know her, but everyone who did said she was a fantastic woman and a great mother. My deepest condolences to the family

In a sad note amid this political season, I have to report the death of Julie Brady, wife of former Illinois GOP Chairman Pat Brady.

Ms. Brady, the former Julie Blink, was 51, and died after a lengthy illness. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin Law School, she met her husband while both were working for the U.S. Department of Justice.

“She was an honors graduate,” Mr. Brady told me today in a brief phone conversation. “She was honors in everything.”

Ms. Brady’s illness began before and continued through the flap over Mr. Brady’s decision to publicly endorse legal marriage in Illinois — a decision that eventually resulted in his ouster as chairman.

Visitation and services will be Monday at St. Patrick’s Parish, 115 N. Fourth St., St Charles. Survivors include four children.

Word of her death emerged in a note from Mr. Brady’s successor as chairman, Jack Dorgan. GOP gubernatorial nominee Bruce Rauner released a statement terming Ms. Brady “a remarkable woman who cared passionately about Illinois and our children.”
