COOPERSTOWN - Julia Alexandra Levandowski, beloved daughter, sister, granddaughter and friend, died unexpectedly in the early morning hours of Thursday, May 21, 2015, as the result of injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident. She was 21.

Julia had many interests and aspirations. She enjoyed playing keyboard, guitar, banjo and drums, listening to music, creative writing and design, and nature. Her goal was to pursue a career in filmmaking, advertising or writing. She also wanted to own her own business.
