July 12, 1980 – December 19, 2019
It is with broken hearts that we announce the loss of one so very precious; Julie Cole. Left behind to mourn Julie is her loving husband Kenny and the two greatest joys of their life together, Lauryn and Michael. Julie celebrated every milestone of her family with such flourish and enthusiasm as a chance to show her abundance of love that she felt toward each member. Her children were what made her the proudest of all! She was committed to involving them in many extra-curricular activities and especially loved swimming with them on their many family trips.
Julie was a shining star with a heart of gold, spreading goodwill and extending gestures of love and care. When Julie came into your life she was like Christmas! She found a way to honor all people around her in every way and every day that she could. That is what brought Julie happiness. She was driven to make a difference in this world by doing right and caring about everyone.
Also left behind with huge holes in their hearts are Julie’s Parents Janice and Laurin. Her “Mom & Pops” were two of her most loyal supporters and together with Julie’s children and husband, they constituted a team. The tremendous loss of Julie’s life will forever be felt by her brother Kyle (Merve) her step-dad Wayne and her loving aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. Julie really missed the many close relatives that predeceased her. She was predeceased by her “Daddy Max” in 1986. “Honeypie” as she was so affectionately called was brilliant as the sun, adding warmth to the many thousands of people that she touched with the deepest and most sincere compassion. Julie was the world’s sunshine girl. She was as selfless and inclusive a person there ever was. Julie possessed a steely determination to do right by the world at large. She was extremely principled and immensely intuitive and emotional. When you thought that Julie had taken on more than enough, she would be re-fueled by the very need that she saw in the world around her.
Julie had many talents and interests. She was non-stop in her learning. She received her Diploma in the Hotel & Resort Industry, but her love of cooking inspired her to become a red seal chef where she put her skills to great use at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver. Julie was an outstanding employee in many capacities and she began to take real initiative on the Human Resources team while there.
Food was one of her many ways to people’s hearts. From the time she was a teenager she would be gifting her many wonderful products she made at home. She had tremendous initiative and creativity with food. So many playdates of her children, co- workers, family and friends were delighted to share in this wonderful gifting.
Julie was an avid reader and multi-tasker. This led to educate in the industrial world as a Safety Officer and then carry on to become a Certified Registered Safety Professional. This non-stop girl was always in pursuit of new goals. Watching her go would make your head spin. How she managed to do so much and touch the hearts and lives of so many people in such a short time was absolutely amazing!
She was so passionate in all that she did. You could not ask for a more loving and dedicated daughter, sister or friend no matter how much she had going on. Julie lived a very full life in her 39 years. There simply are not enough words to express the love that we all felt for her. The incredible love and attention she bestowed on us all will leave an indelible imprint on each of our hearts. Julie was unique; a gift that you had to see to believe. She was such a tremendous inspiration of love and hope. The void that she leaves behind in our hearts is irreplaceable.
The Family of Julie Cole would like to express their sincere thanks for the outpour of love, support and food that the Community provided for us in our deepest state of sadness.
There will be no Service at this time as we believed what Julie would want most is for People to Celebrate her life at her home on her Family’s Ranch in Pass Creek. We will be waiting for a time during the Spring when the roads are safer for travel and her many friends and family may attend. We will send out a notice when the time is nearer.
