  • Dear Mark and Family, Though it has been many years since I have seen Julie or you (Mark), Julie was a dear friend during University. It is hard to believe that she isn't somewhere in world being her cheerful, infectious self. I have so many fun memories of our times together, her driving her VW Bug like a mad woman, going trick or treating in our twenties and being offered beer instead of candy, her gaining weight when she had her jaw wired shut, the surprise birthday party she helped plan with my mother, her meeting you, Mark, and so many other fond memories. Many times, I meant to find her and reach out. I am so very sorry that I did not. Mark and family, please know that you and she are in my thoughts. My sincere condolences go out to you. - Posted by: Magda Stryk Therrien (Friend) on: Sep 16, 2017

  • Mark, I am so sorry to hear about Julie - a dynamo by any standard! I have many fond and funny memories of Julie; skiing with Scott Millard and playing with our little kids in Rat Lake and at the beach, for example. Julie sent me a photo of Erin and Spencer a couple of years ago and it is one of my favourites. I was lucky enough to run into Julie every few years since we left the North so that we could renew our connections. My heart goes out to you, Erin and Tory for your great loss. - Posted by: Debra Myles (friend) on: Sep 16, 2017

  • Mark and Tory and Erin. Your partner and mother will be not forgotten by you nor the people she connected with in her career.

  • We first met Julie and Mark while walking our dogs on Rat Lake in Yellowknife a long time ago. Their genuine and infectious joy about the natural world (and each other) was evident from the start. Our paths continued to cross on various occasions when something work related came up. Each time it provided an opportunity to renew spirits and the belief in hope by being with Julie, who was more than just kind and thoughtful. Mark, our thoughts are with you and your family.

  • I offer my condolences to you, Mark and your children. I met and spent some time with Julie while she lived in Yellowknife. I remember how much she loved her family and friends. On the occasions that we were together I remember how bright and enthusiastic she was. She had a quick wit as well. During a yoga class, she looked over at me and remarked that I was like a human pretzel. I will never forget the comment, the smile on her face and the twinkle in her eyes.
