Unexpectedly, on the morning of August 9, 2022 Julia Elizabeth Brooks, age 77, passed away in the home she shared with her beloved husband.
She leaves to mourn her husband of 58 years, Barrie Brooks, daughter Carol (Tim), son Ken (Cxene), grandchildren Allyssa (Ari), Brooklyne, Edison (Alyssa) and Gregory. Also, her one and only great-grandson Jasper. She is also survived by her brother Lawrence (Rosemary), and will be missed by many friends and relatives.
Julia retired from Canada Revenue service after 26 years and was very active with the Transcona United Church as a member of the board and the congregation. She was as caring and giving as she was meticulous and practical.
Julia was predeceased by her son Christopher and daughter Barbara.
A tremendous thank-you to Winnipeg Police and Paramedics for their care and patience through this difficult time.
A celebration of Julia will be held Friday, August 19, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. at Transcona Memorial United Church, 209 Yale Avenue W., with reception to follow.

Where does one begin to pay tribute to such an amazing women. She was loving and caring and also had the advise needed. My late husband worked with Barrie and that’s how we met Julia. We have been friends for over 25 years, spent many of nights paying cards or marbles, yes it’s true Barrie and Brian let us girls win once and awhile, I will forever miss those times. My heart breaks for Barrie and family. She will truly be missed.❤️❤️ - Posted by: Becky Differ (Friend) on: Aug 16, 2022
