Julia RAGOT

RAGOT, Julia Blanche (nee Tribe)

Julia Ragot passed away peacefully at the Fraser Hope Lodge in Hope, BC on 20 November 2011. Julia was born in Calgary on 11 April 1918. Her family moved to a farm near Olds in 1928. She returned to Calgary to complete her education at Crescent Heights High School. She was pre-deceased by both of her husbands, Allan Marshall Diehl in 1950 and Jean Baptiste Marie Joseph Ragot in 1978 and her son Michael in 2006. Julia is survived by two siblings (Lois and Robert), four children, Eva (Les), Rose (Sid), Roy (Susan), Jack (Juliana), twelve grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren. She was blessed with a kind heart that always reached out to comfort the down trodden and disadvantaged. Making music was a lifelong enjoyment that she enthusiastically shared, particularly with siblings. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her. The family would like to thank the staff at Fraser Hope Lodge for all the love and support they provided for Mom over the last 4 1/2 years and to Dr. Greggain for the compassionate care. A small Remembrance Service will be held at the Fraser Hope Lodge (1275 – 7 Avenue, Hope, BC V0X 1L4) on Tuesday, 6 December 2011 at 10:30 am. A Memorial Service is planned for a later date. Expressions of sympathy and a request to be notified of the Memorial Service date and location can be emailed torememberjulia@shaw.ca. If friends and family so desire, memorial donations may be made directly to the charity of the donor’s choice.
