To all her friends she was known as "Jay". However, to my brother and I, she was simply our "Mom". Our mom was born Julia Braschuk in Komarno Manitoba on June 1, 1910. Her family moved to Winnipeg prior to World War 2 where she met her husband-to-be, Rudy. They fell in love and were married in 1937. Our mom always put her family first. She loved having her children over for Sunday dinner. Her roast beef and perogies were among her favorite dishes. She loved to plant her flowers around the house every spring and took joy in their beauty. Our mom loved to take walks, watch soap operas, visit friends and relatives, go camping, shop, play cards, and take trips. She always had a warm smile and hug at the ready. Mom, we love you and we will never forget you. Be at rest where you now dwell Forever at peace. - Farewell! The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at the Fred Douglas Lodge (Willow Unit) for their heartfelt care of our mom over the years. A funeral service will be held on Monday, December 20, 2004 at 10:00 a.m. at Glen Eden Funeral Home with interment to follow.
