We Remember

MALLINSON, Julia Marie

It is with deep love and sorrow that the family of Julia Marie Mallinson announce her passing on February 1, 2021, at the age of 63.

Julia will be deeply missed by her husband Mark and his daughter Alice (Tate); her daughters Genny (Dane) and Alyssa; her grandchildren Kellan, Olivia, and Nevaeh; her brother Ron Lustig (Wendy); and her nephews Austin(Shanelle) and Reid. She was predeceased by her parents WIlliam and Margaret Lustig.

Julia was a knowledgeable and compassionate professional in her many nursing roles and had a lasting positive impact on the many people she worked with over the years.

Her nursing career started at the Plains Hospital in Regina, SK, and from there she worked at Kelowna General Hospital where she poured her heart and soul into the setup of COACH Cardiac Rehab Program.  She then worked at Foothills Hospital in Calgary, AB and eventually made the move back to Kelowna, BC to marry Mark, and would again work at Kelowna General in Cardiology where she retired after a 40-year nursing career.

Julia was such a bubbly little person with an energy, and fun-loving, spirit that was contagious. She had impeccable style and was always perfectly put together.

Julia took a sincere interest in the lives of all those around her from co-workers to family and friends and was always there for so many.

She loved spending time in her yard and decorating it extra special for holidays. Her grandchildren meant the world to her, and she loved spending time with them.

Julia was a loyal and caring person who loved her family and friends with her whole heart and was truly a beautiful person inside and out!

The family would like to thank Norean, Lisa, and Sarah from the stroke team as well as the staff on 4B at Kelowna General for taking such great care of Julia after she suffered from a brain aneurysm in October.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

If you so wish, a donation in memory of Julia can be made to either COACH or the Cardiology Department at Kelowna General Hospital, www.kghfoundation.com.
