Beloved wife, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. Julia met each challenge in life with courage, spirit and determination before losing a fiercely fought battle against cancer. She "fought like a girl" every inch of the way. A celebration of Julia's life will be held on Sunday, November 25, 2012 at Beecher Place, 12160 Beecher St., Crescent Beach, BC. Drop in anytime between 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. As per Julia's wishes, it is intended that this truly be a celebration of all that she loved in life; wear bright, happy colours and a smile - for all the good memories she leaves us with. Bring your photos, remembrances and stories so that we can share the good times together. Julia's husband Rick and her family wish to express their heartfelt thanks to Dr. Diego Villa Restrepo and the staff at the Vancouver Cancer Clinic for their compassionate care and support, and to the staff at Surrey Memorial Hospital. The nursing staff of wards N51 and N52 were especially kind, providing superior care and emotional support to Julia and to her family. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Julia's name to Covenant House Vancouver, the BCSPCA or to the BC Cancer Foundation.
