Julia Joanne Christine Bamber, beloved daughter of Jean and Paul Bamber, sister to PJ and also predeceased by her brother Georgie, passed away on Friday, October 5, 2018 surrounded by her loving family after a very difficult week fighting an illness caused by her weakened heart.

Julia was a beautiful soul who, despite her many issues caused by her CFC Syndrome, brought joy to everyone she met with her beautiful smile and cheerful giggles. Julia’s joy’s in life were to be hugged, kissed and held by those closest to her, and listening to music, but mostly just to be by her Mama’s side where she spent the vast majority of her life.

Julia is survived by her parents, Jean and Paul; her brother, PJ; her nana, Jane Bamber; her grandma, Minnie Grinder; Grandpa, Joe Manuel; and her many, many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Those wishing to pay their respects may do so at the residence of Jean & Paul Bamber on Sunday, October 7, 2018 in the evening until Wednesday, October 10, 2018.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Crowfoot, 82 Crowfoot Circle N.W., Calgary, AB), on Thursday, October 11, 2018 at 2:00 p.m Reception to follow at the Funeral Home.

It is recommended that you arrive early, car pool as much as possible or even take the LRT which is directly across the street. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Julia Bamber, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Crowfoot, 82 CROWFOOT CIRCLE N.W. CALGARY, AB, T3G 2T3, Telephone: 403-241-0044.

  5. Dear Jean, Paul, PJ and family,

    I have never witnessed such a strong family bond in a time of uncertainty, trauma and suffering in the PICU. You have each brought so much joy to Julia’s life. She is a beautiful girl with a very special heart and she fought hard for you all. I wish I had met the joyful Julia you had all described who loved to dance to upbeat music or even AC/DC. I hope that your memories of your special little girl only strengthens your bond as a family. You have all proven that you could get through any hardship in life and I wish you all peace. Despite the pain she endured in her last few moments fighting to stay with you all, it gives me comfort knowing that she has lived ten wonderful years with such a loving family as yours.
