Rempel, Julie Christine

November 15, 1985 - September 25, 2018

Obituary

 

Julie, age 32, passed away into the arms of Jesus on Sept. 25, 2018 surrounded by her family.  She fought a brave and courageous battle with brain cancer for 3 years.  She beat the first tumour but was diagnosed with a second tumour in April.  It was aggressive and did not respond to treatment.

Julie was born on Nov. 15, 1985 in Abbotsford, B.C.  She had an infectious smile and made friends easily.  Julie loved basketball from an early age and played on teams at Valley Christian School, MEI, CBC, and then in a Women’s League.  She was known for her 3 point shots.  She really enjoyed volunteering at kids basketball camps.

Julie was a confident woman, a comedian, a workout queen, social butterfly and loving Aunt.  The last 6 months were especially tough as her physical strength was taken away and her eyesight deteriorated but her spirit remained strong and she could still make us smile.  She never complained or felt sorry for herself and she was so grateful to everyone that helped her.  Her faith and trust in God helped her to be at peace in the midst of her circumstances.

She will be remembered and missed by her parents Tim and Flo Rempel, sister Stephanie (Aaron) Trickett, brother Tim (Kim) Rempel, nieces Lilah, Abigail and Elayna, nephews Declan and Hunter, aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.  Julie was predeceased by her grandparents Frank and Betty Neufeld and Henry and Margaret Rempel; and her sister-in-law Alissa Rempel (in August 2016).

In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Julie can be made to  CLIMB.

This is a local kids basketball camp.  E-transfers can be made to chiaashton@gmail.com.

I am deeply saddened by the passing of Julie. Fond memories are what I will have of her from our time together at the recreation centre. She carried herself with such grace, had such a sparkle in her smiling eyes. May the love of family and friends comfort you and help you during these difficult days. My most heartfelt condolences to all of you so close to her.

From: Hanna McLendon (Reimer)

Tim and Flo, my heartfelt condolences to you and your family! I had the privilege of helping coach Julie in her Sr. B-ball season at MEI. She was a delight to be around, just a riot! She loved the game and was just a pure shooter. I knew that baseline jumper was money every time! I am so, so sorry for your loss. Praying peace over your family. So grateful we get to see her again one day! Blessings!

Tim and Flo, Julie was such an inspiration to me. Her faith, her strength in the midst of everything she went through. I didn’t know her very long but she left a lasting impression. I will never forget her or her hugs or smiles. The Lord surround you with His peace.
