The family of Julia Thomas-Julien are here to celebrate her life which began on May 8th, 1948. Born to Mahalia Thomas and Michael Augustine, Julia was the third of five children. Zitty, a name she was affectionately called by many, was a fierce and loyal friend, loving Aunt and dedicated Mother.
Upon completion of her education at Fyzabad Intermediate School, she gained employment at Sylvania, while pursuing her nursing studies. Julia would subsequently qualify as a Registered Nurse, where she worked tirelessly for the good of everyone in her care while working at the Port-of-Spain General Hospi- tal. She later migrated to New York where she continued to work as a Registered Nurse within the New York health care system until her retirement. Her career brought her a deep feeling of pride, joy, one that she would execute with a duty of care, love, integrity and respect towards everyone.
Julia will be remembered by each of us in our own special way but one thing that will hold true, even though she was always late she was present and al- ways ready to give of herself no matter the time. She was strength personified for her family and friends. Everyone benefited from her words of encouragement, wisdom and hard work as she lived a life of service. Julia understood what it meant to be without and thus was a source of support and comfort for many. She left us with the same aura in which she lived her life. Without pomp, and fanfare but with strength and the knowledge that she was loved.
She will be remembered by her daughters: Nequesha, Nichola, Janella, Jenilee and Lee-Ann. Sisters: Barbara and Monica. Grandsons Nicholas, Jordan, Malachi, Makai. Nephews: Godwin, Paul, Toney and Christopher and a host of others. Nieces Hazel-Ann, Karissa and a host of others. Aunt Ruby. Cousins Cecil, Leon, Robert, Terry and many others. Her cousins the Paynter’s, Maricheau’s, Pascal’s and others.
Even though she may no longer be here her friends Joan, Sharon, Marlene, Jennifer, Edmund, Dyllis, Carol, Ray, Leonie, Sauda, Charmaine, Marcia and her Nursing family will constantly remember the laughter shared and time spent.
We thank you for sharing this time with us.
