Julie is survived by her two sons Ernie and Nathan, her daughters-in-law Angelica and Jenevieve, and her loving grandchildren Joshua, Jasmine, Jorja, Isabella, Isaiah and Emma, her sister Florence Huihui and numerous nieces and nephews. She was a loving and devoted daughter, mother, grandmother, sister and friend.
Mom devoted her life in service to God and others touching the lives of everyone she met with compassion, kindness and nurturing love. She had a healing gift of lighting up the room with just a simple smile. She was a mother to all and a beacon of light and joy, leading a life of service and good will. She leaves behind a legacy of love that will live on forever in the hearts and minds of everyone she touched. We are grateful to have had her in our lives and invite all those who knew her to celebrate the wonderful woman we all knew and loved.
