KERI, Julia

February 16, 1925 – Pozsony Vágsellye, Czechoslovakia
January 18, 2016 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of Julia Keri on January 18, 2016, in Calgary AB.

Julia was 90 years old. She was wife of the late Jozsef; mother of Joseph Keri Jr (Carla), Peter Keri (Soo), Eva Leclerc (John); grandmother to Tasha Keri (Jean), Nadia Keri; and great-grandmother to Amelia and Charlotte (Tasha and Jean).

Julia had a warm and energetic personality. She immigrated to Canada from Hungary in 1956 with her husband and young son. They moved to Wawa in 1958. Julia loved living and raising her family in Wawa. Older residents would remember the many years she worked in the produce department of White’s Grocery store. Julia often spoke fondly of her time working there, especially the “young people” she got to work with. She had a gift for being able to carry on a conversation with anyone in one of 7 languages. Julia carried this gift with her when she moved to Sault Ste. Marie and later Calgary AB. She will be greatly missed. “You Are My Sunshine”

A private family memorial service will be held at a later date. The family would appreciate donations be directed to the Hotchkiss Brain Institute as follows: Please make cheque payable to the “University of Calgary” and specify “Dementia & Cognitive Disorders Team” Mailed to: Hotchkiss Brain Institute, University of Calgary, Cumming School of Medicine, HRIC 1A10, 3330 Hospital Drive NW, Calgary, AB T2N 4N1. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Julia Keri, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: 1-800-661-1599.

    My deepest sympathies to all. I was one of the young people that was so fortunate to work with your mom at Victor White’s. She was very caring, gave great advice and carved the future for many of us who worked with her.
