Condolence: I met Julie 25 years ago. We were in a women's study group together. I knew the minute I met her that we'd be friends. She loved to sew, I loved to sew, she loved to read, I loved to read. It was an effortless friendship that I will always cherish. Julie was a very kind person with a great sense of humour. She could make you laugh about the most mundane thing, just the way she told the story. Julie had a lot going on in her life but she always found time to ask how my family was or tell me she saw a news article or news clip that made her think of one of my kids. Julie loved her daughters fiercely. She was super proud of you girls. She was also so so happy to have Little Blake or as she called him Tolly come into her life. It really made everything complete for her. I will miss Julie. When I think of her it will be with affection and a giggle knowing she is having the last laugh in heaven right now. Love and prayers to Meredith and Bettina.
Condolence: Julie was a resident alongside my Mom, Trudy at ILTC. She was always freindly, caring and concerned about Mom, and often gave me advice, backed by her carreer in Nursing. She had a terrific smile and now after reading her Life Story here - should have known...of course, She loved the Lord! Condolences to her Family.
Condolence: Meredith and Bettina and families, my deepest sympathies to you. Julie was such a precious person and I was happy to have her in our bible study. She always had insights and questions to bring life into the discussion. I loved to read her obituary which described her so well, and she would have liked it too. Just know much of her conversation with us included her love and pride for her family.
Condolence: The world has lost a unique lady. I have known Julie as a longtime coworker and longtime friend. Everyone that knows Julie has a “Julie story”. . You always felt safe when you worked a shift in the ER with her. She will be missed. Love and hugs to Meredith and Bettina and families.
Condolence: My condolences on the passing of your dearly loved mother. I recall many ‘grocery aisle’ conversations and appreciated her listening skills and caring concern. She always spoke proudly of her daughters.
Condolence: Dear Meredith & Bettina and families:
When the Lord made Julie he broke the mold - she was one of a kind, caring, compassionate, always there to help, totally clear-sighted, no nonsense, and what you saw was what you got, and I always got a hug when you were in Maple Grove, and when we met over the years in the Credit Union in Vineland! If there was any way Julie could help you, she did. She loved you both and her grandson above all else. Cherish the memories. The world is a sadder place without Julie!
Condolence: I am so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. I got to know here when she was in my Women's Bible study group at Bethany Church. We did a lot of praying for Lorne and her girls. Her love for the Lord shone through, and I am thankful that she is resting in God's care. Sending my love and prayers.
We are sorry to hear of your mother's passing. She was a special person and had a strong Christian faith. My Mom always told me how much she enjoyed visiting and praying with Julie. Bob and I in particular will always remember her smiling welcoming face whenever we came into the Emergency Department in St. Catharines. She knew Bob had a heart problem, would hear he was there, and come right out to see if she could help. It gave us great comfort to know she was looking out for him. I'm sure there were many others who felt the same way.
Condolence: Meredith and Bettina - you gave your Mom a great gift of support and love for these last days. Cherish these memories. The nursing classmates '68 will remember your Mom's laugh, unique sense of humour and her willingness to help. She was a powerful statement for what a "nurse" is.
Julie - Rest in peace my friend and colleague.
