Messages of Remembrance

Julie introduced us to the beauty of the Fraser Valley and taught us about being Canadian. Her love of life and enthusiasm for all the people of British Columbia and far beyond, inspired us. We miss her and we hope that this fund will inspire "the Julies" of future generations to pursue their dreams.

I remember Julie best as a student in my drama class at what was then Chilliwack Junior High. She played the dastardly villain in our class melodrama. She was such a bright spark, full of energy and laughter. Our paths crossed again in Australia of all places. I was on a teaching exchange to the Gold Coast and Julie was there on scholarship. We bumped into each other in the the little North Queensland town of Kuranda where we had both attended a wonderful aboriginal cultural show. We meet several times after that and Julie shared with me how much she was struggling with the ( then) pretty shaky Australian attitude towards their indigenous people. Her compassion and desire for change was evident. I am so glad she continued to be involved in this very important area and I’m sorry that her life ended too soon. In a long teaching career there are always students that stand out more than others, and Julie was definitely was one of those.

Julie, you have always been an inspiration, and we are proud to be part of your "international family". We will love you forever. Moira Goode, November 20,2019
