Obituary for Julia Winkler

Snodgrass Funeral Homes
Julia Winkler of Pincher Creek passed away on Jan. 14, 2022, at the age of 92.

Julia was born Jan. 6, 1930, in Linden, Nova Scotia. She is survived by her son, Terry, daughter-in-law Ursula, grandchildren Peter and Lisa, and sister Noreen. She was predeceased by her husband, Max, and sister Muriel.

Julia worked as a teacher and social worker as she moved westward from the Maritimes. She met and married the love of her life, Max, and eventually moved to Jasper when Max became a park warden.

They spent wonderful years in the backcountry, and it was there that she began her 45-year career of woodcarving. She loved living in the four national parks in which Max was posted: Jasper, Kootenay, Forillon and Waterton. A lover of the outdoors, she enjoyed a wide variety of activities in the world of nature.

Julia had a wonderful sense of adventure, a joy in learning and lived life to its fullest. Max and Julia’s various homes in the parks, and later retirement in Twin Butte, were places where friends and family were welcomed. She believed that these loving relationships were among the greatest blessings of her long life.

We want to thank all you beautiful people far and wide who were so present in Julia’s life. Thank you for your friendship, for sharing adventures, laughter and love with her. Thank you for all the support and help you extended to her, especially during the last few months of her life when she needed it so very much. We treasure you all.

Terry, Ursula, Peter and Lisa Winkler

A celebration of life will be held in the spring when the flowers return.
