GELDER (nee Paquet), Julie September 18, 1971 – March 1, 2018 It is with profound sadness that we share the news of Julie’s passing on March 1, 2018 at the age of 46, after a courageous battle with cancer.

She was the devoted mother to her two daughters Sofie and Emilie Gelder and their experiences together will bond them forever. She will be eternally missed by her mother Alenka, father Guy, brother Mike, sister Danna and all extended family and friends. Julie loved being immersed in nature and her fondest memories were spent with loved ones at the family cottage in Lac Sam.

Julie was one of the most kindest, generous and supportive people I knew. Her home and heart was always open and I loved coming over for good food, glass of wine and lots of talks. She taught me to be a better mom and by doing that a better person. I have often passed along her words of wisdom to many other new moms and will continue to do so. Her spirit will always live on and be close by in those times when we need to hear Julie's words of comfort. Much Love Lorraine and Tyler

Dear Steve, Sofie and Emily, I remember very clearly when I first met Julie at Lac Sam, her warmth, smile and the light shining from her making me feel as if I had met a very dear friend. It is my profound loss that I did not come to know her better, always thinking that next summer I would see her again. I am so sorry she is gone. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Doritt
