After a long and full life, Julia Perepelkin
(nee Fillipoff) passed away just shy of her 92nd birthday at Abbotsford Regional Hospital, on February 3, 2012 after a short battle with pneumonia. Born in Pass Creek, British Columbia to Fred and Nastia Fillipoff, Julia made homes in Winlaw, Robson, and Castlegar before moving into care in Aldergrove. Julia will always be remembered for her impeccable dress, her passion for embroidery and fringing of Doukhobor shawls, and her love for dahlias and flower gardens. Predeceased by her parents, brothers John and Sam, her husbands Pete Perepelkin, and Mickit Nazarov, and by her daughter-in-law Florence Perepelkin, granddaughter Larissa Perepelkin and grandson Keith Perepelkin. Julia is survived by her son Peter Perepelkin (Joy), daughters Evelyn Markin (Allan) and Teresa Verigin (Brent), and grandchildren Allison Markin, Quentin Markin (Heather) and Brenden Verigin. A Lifelong member of the USCC, her service was held at Brilliant Cultural Centre on Wednesday, February 8, 2012 with internment at the Brilliant Doukhobor Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory to the USCC or to Iskra would be
gratefully accepted. Funeral arrangements
were by the Castlegar Funeral Chapel.
