July 31, 1931 – December 7, 2015
It is with profound sadness that we announce Julia Sedmak passed away December 7, 2015 in Kelowna, BC at the age of 84 at Sun Pointe Village, Kelowna, BC with family and caring staff at her side.She is survived by her sons Jerry (Anke) & Andy Sedmak and daughter Anne Watt (Fraser) and grandchildren Jenna Sedmak, Lindsey (Mike) Woodward, Jordan Sedmak, Shannon Sedmak, Jennica Sedmak and great-grandchildren Taylor & River Woodward.
Julia was predeceased at a very young age by her parents, son Branko Sedmak (1977), her husband Peter Sedmak (2011), brother Johan Bratusha and sisters Maricia Greflin & Sabina Brisar.
Julia was born and raised in Slovenia, married at young age of 18 and immigrated to Canada in 1956. She absolutely devoted her life to looking after and caring for her family. Being with her children and grandchildren was the most precious thing to her and provided her love, laughter and happiness. She was a very caring, compassionate and loving human being and always put the needs of others before her own. She loved the simple things in life. With a keen sense and love for traditional European cooking, she always prepared a feast fit for a King & Queen whenever anyone stopped by. Julia loved socializing, nature, gardening, especially flowers and music.
We give special thanks to Sun Pointe Village staff for their extra special care that they bestowed for Julia’s needs.
Church Service with Celebration of Life will be held on April 22, 2016 at Corpus Christi Church (formerly known as St Theresa’s Church) at 750 Rutland Rd, starting at 11AM. Interment will follow at Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery.
