It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our beautiful Julie at the Campbell River Hospital, surrounded by her family on August 11th. 2018.
Born in Riverside, California, Julia immigrated to Quadra Island in 1989, when she bought the Heriot Bay Inn. She remained active in running the HBI in various capacities until her retirement in 2014. A lover of the outdoors, photography, great food and her precious family, Julie lived her life to the fullest even through her battle with breast cancer.
She leaves behind her husband, Bruce Bingham, her children Tyler Shedden (Susan), Jennifer McPhee (Scott), Cali Melnechenko (Mike), and Tessa Bingham, five beloved grandchildren, and a large extended family in Nevada.
A celebration of life will be held in Julia’s memory at the Quadra Island Legion branch #154 at 2pm on Saturday, September 22, 2018. We invite you to join us to share memories and stories of our lovely Julie.
