Juliette Faure Gray was born June 19, 1915, in North Battleford, a small town on the plains of northern Saskatchewan, Canada.
She died nearly 97 years later on March 29, 2012, at Sherwood Assisted Living Center in Sequim.
Julie's end came peacefully, with her three children at her side.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Francis Gray, and is survived by her three children, two grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
A woman of decisive opinions, Julie led a full life, emphasized through her strong Catholic faith, devotion to family and a lifetime of service, including her career as a registered nurse.
Growing up in a French-speaking family provided a basis for Julie's broad-ranging interests and the many close friends who lasted a lifetime.
From creating fine petit point designs, to a long tradition of making her own wine, to serving her church in many capacities, she was continually an active participant in her life.
An avid card player, Julie was particularly accomplished as a duplicate bridge player, achieving a Silver Life Master award from the American Contract Bridge League.
She is interred at Sequim View Cemetery. A memorial Mass is scheduled for Tuesday, April 17, at 8:30 a.m. at St. Joseph's Catholic Church, 121 East Maple Street in Sequim.
In lieu of flowers, Masses may be offered for Julie or donations given to St. Vincent de Paul, P.O. Box 2114, Sequim, WA 98382.
