Sad to see she has passed away . May you Rest in Peace Julia~ My Condolences to the family.

I worked with Julia at BMO in Abbotsford . We then moved to 100 MIle the same time as Julia and Rod. We were friends for many years and missed her when she moved back to Coast. So very sorry to hear of her passing. God Bless, Julia. Our condolences to the family.

From: Deirdre Utley

We met Julia in 2001 when my husband Tim and I decided to get married. Julia was enormously helpful and had wonderful suggestions for our home wedding. She made our day very special, and it meant a lot to me that she was from Scotland, as my father had been, possibly even from the same area. My father had passed away in 1996, so it meant a lot to me that there was a lovely Scottish lady marrying us, very professional but at the same time with kind humor and clear enjoyment in walking us through everything. Very best wishes to all the family and God Bless.

From: Dawn Payne

I’ve known Julia since 1997 when my family moved to 108 Mile. She already knew my Mom from the genealogy club. I enjoyed her many stories of growing up in Scotland, and rejoiced with her when she got to go see her sister after so many years. She became a good friend of the family, sharing many visits. I enjoyed seeing her at work with the many weddings she officiated at the 108 Resort – where I worked. She always made time to stop for a quick visit. She’s touched the lives of many, and will be sorely missed. Sending love to the family.

Sending you love Julia on the next part of your journey…when I think upon you I smile..

From: Anne Blaney

I have been trying to track down Julia for a couple years, with no success, until I totally by happenstance, found her obituary in the 100 Mile Free Press tonight. I can’t help but think she somehow guided my hand on that mouse! Julia also touched my life in a profound way, she was a marvellous friend as you know. She spoke of her family all the time. She was the one who inspired me and tutored me (and others) in astrology. She attained mastery in this practice. No mistake she loved marrying folks, I bet she did their charts beforehand! I would love to hear from you about how her last years went. Julia was very special to me. My condolences and warm greetings to those who also knew and loved her. Anne
