It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Julia Wilson. Julia passed away peacefully on February 25th, 2015 comforted by the
caring staff at New Horizons. We learned that the night before her passing, she was talking a lot in her sleep and her roommate believed she was talking to Don (her predeceased husband). It was time to leave behind dementia and be free.
Julia had some diverse jobs in her lifetime:
mother, cashier, meter maid at Nanisivik, Baffin
Island, co owner of two convenience stores in
Campbell River, to name a few. She took on each new challenge and succeeded.
Julia was kind and compassionate, a good friend, devoted wife and a loving, caring mother. She loved her family and all of the pets that came into her life. We miss that twinkle in her eye , sweet smile and
Julia leaves behind her two children, Gary (Therese) and Donna (Gary), grandchildren: Jason (Donna), Travis (Rececca) Stacey (Tristan), and 11 great grandchildren.
Bigs hugs to the caring staff at New Horizons for their patience and compassion throughout the time mom was a resident.
Julia had a soft spot for animals. For those wishing, donations to the SPCA or to support York, the PADS dog at New Horizons (talk to Georgia or Tony for more info) in Julia’s name would be appreciated.
