Julia was known to many people around Penticton. Her home was a refuge to many young people over the years and they never left hungry. She liked her work and cared greatly for youth and the handicapped. She loved animals. She will be greatly missed by all.
Julia’s message to everyone: to regard the preciousness of life daily in all aspects of good living with joy.
