DICKSON, Julia Anne

April 2, 1932 – December 30, 2018

Our dear Mom passed away quickly and peacefully after living for some time with lung disease.Born in Fort William, Ontario, Judy made Kelowna her home from 1982 until her passing. A brave, wise, and independent spirit to the end, she remained devoted to her family, her broad network of friends, and her community. Judy was a passionate learner and cook, and she rewarded any spicy joke with unrestrained laughter. Judy is survived by daughter Linda Emigh (Keryn), daughter Colleen James (Peter), son Brian Emigh (Jerry), grandsons Camden and Jayden, and former husband Bill Emigh (Peggy).
We hope Judy is now reunited with her beloved sister, Phyllis.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Doctors Without Borders, the Stephen Lewis Foundation, or another charity of your choice are encouraged. A Celebration of Life for Julia will follow in the spring.

    Judy was a wonderful person and will be sadly missed. She was a rare breed - very feisty, independent and unafraid to state her knowlegable opinions to anyone. She also had a great sense of humour. She was for many years a strong supporter of the KLO Neighbourhood Association.

    I ran into Judy Dec.22 at Mission Pharmasave. She recognized me first. I hadn't seen her since early 2006 after I moved to Kettle Valley. I lived 2 doors down from her on Walnut Street for 13 years prior. I remember her love of books, her plants and her great laugh. So glad she recognized me Dec. 22 so we were able to have a nice little chat! Rest in Peace Judy! Janice Ott
