Julie Anna Popovich

June 14, 1931 - December 26, 2021

Surrounded by the love of her children, it is with profound sadness that the family of Julie Popovich announces her passing at the age of 90 on December 26, 2021. She has gone on to join her loving husband, Mirko (Mike) Popovich, for an eternal dance in heaven. Julie is predeceased by her parents and siblings.

Julie will be greatly missed by her children, Miolyka (Earl-deceased) Steele, Barbara (Michael) Tew, Doris (Michael) Chaney, Michael (Clair) Popovich, Albert (Lisa) Popovich and Robert (Christine) Popovich. She was the beloved Oma of 13 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.

Julie will be missed immensely by her extended family throughout Canada, United States, Germany, Austria, Italy and Serbia.

Julie will be remembered for her genuine warmth and kindness; she loved to cook, bake, and share a meal with family and friends.

In lieu of flowers, those wishing to make a donation in memory of Julie are asked to consider the London Food Bank.

We would like to thank the staff and health professionals that cared for Julie, with a special thank you to the Personal Support Workers at Henley Place for their compassion and care.

A private family service will be held at a later date as per Julie’s wishes.

Julie-our Mother, our Grandma, our Oma-Always Remembered.

I worked with Julie in the ER at South Street, LHSC. She was always a delight ! Willing to do anything that would help the nurses and patients we cared for over the years. She came to all the get togethers we had and I now have the recipe for Hazel nut cookies. I treasure the time we had with her ! Her lovely smile and quick jaunts to the labs ! She earned her place in heaven for sure ! She was very proud of her family and I send my deepest sympathy and condolences to you all. May God bless her.

My sincere and heartfelt condolences to the Popovich family on the passing of your mother as I know how hard it can be when your parents are gone. I grew up in the neighbourhood and knew most of the family,even worked with their father Mirko (taken to soon)and my first thoughts were of love and warmth of their mother. Grief never ends but it changes and I hope over time you will remember all the good times you enjoyed. I am sorry for your loss.

Mike and family we are sorry for your loss of your beloved mother. There is no doubt that she will be the brightest star in the sky all you have to do is look up and know she is still watching over you. Doug often said what a lovely lady your mom was when he would run into her and she would still recognize him, he would quickly remind her she still looks the same as when he was in public school and would give her a hug. She is now catching up your Dad on all he has missed. Mrs Popovich you should be proud of the job you did raising your family.

~ Doug Wentzell & family

On behalf of my mother, myself and my children we would like to send our deepest condolences to Julie’s family. She was one of the kindness, loving and most genuine women in our Serbian Community. Although she was not Serbian she certainly embraced the traditions, language and people. I will forever remember her beautiful smile which would light up a room. Her warmth and charisma will never be forgotten. May you lay in peace with your beloved Mirko. You will never be forgotten. Much love to your family. May your soul be eternal and your love shine through your children. Rest In Peace lovely lady❤️❤️❤️
