Julie was born in Taber where she met and married Dennis on February 26, 1953. Together they raised their four children on the family farm south of Taber. Julie was hard a working farm wife and worked tirelessly to care for her children. Her family was very important to her, especially her grandchildren who she loved to spoil during sleepovers and the occasional trip downtown to go shopping. Julie loved to travel and during their later years, she and Dennis travelled across Canada, visited Hungary, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Israel, Hawaii and spent fifteen winters in Yuma, Arizona. Julie will be forever remembered as a kind and gentle soul with a great love for her family.
The family would like to thank the staff at Linden View for the care they provided for the past three years and also Clearview Lodge where Julie resided for ten years.
