Julie Anne Donaldson

14 September , 19487 January , 2019

It is with great sadness that we announce Julie’s passing into the presence of her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ after a courageous battle with Leukemia.

Julie passed away peacefully at Saanich Peninsula Hospital surrounded by her family. Born in Vancouver, BC, and pre-deceased by her parents Jack and Ruth Waters and loving husband Jim Donaldson, Julie is survived by brothers Allan (Janet) and Bob (Caroline), son Dale, daughter Lee Mawhinney (Mark), grand-daughter Kara, grandson Keegan and great-grandson Odin. Julie will be deeply missed by many nieces and nephews, sister-in-law Nancy and devoted friends. Julie worked many years in banking, administration for the Government of BC, and locally with Thrifty Foods in Sidney. Upon retirement she committed her life to community service and spiritual outreach. Julie was best known for her kindness, generosity, and abundant love for family, friends, and God. Her quick wit, culinary skills, and selflessness shall be missed. The family would like to thank doctors, nurses, and staff at the BC Cancer Agency and Palliative Care Unit at Saanich Peninsula Hospital. A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Tuesday, January 15th, 2019 at 11:30 am. Hosting will be Peninsula Mission Community Church which meets at the Seventh Day Adventist Church, 9300 Willingdon Rd, North Saanich, BC. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of one’s choice in loving memory of Julie would be greatly appreciated.
