IAMARINO, Julie, DC, - November 18, 1956 – June 14, 2021
Passed away on June 14, 2021, well before her time.
A highly intelligent and inquisitive woman, Julie excelled at everything she did and reinvented herself many times throughout her life.
You may have seen her, the petite brunette with the pretty face and flowing dark hair, jogging down the street, hiking through the woods, camping on Lake Superior.
A health food and exercise enthusiast she is communing with nature, finding her centre.
Dr. Julie Iamarino, beloved sister of Gail Rutherford (Adi Astl), Ellen (Dan) Williams, Joanne (Tom) Pay, and Gina Iamarino.
Daughter of the late Art and Dorothy Iamarino.
Loving aunt of Richard, Carrie (Stefan), Trevor (Sarah), Luke (Chrissy), Marina (Brian), Adele (Robert), and Sara (Christian). Great-auntie to Reece, Arthur, and Emersyn.
It was as a Junior Forest Ranger that she developed her deep affinity with nature, becoming a brave defender of the environment, particularly whales, wild salmon, and elephants.
She continued her education throughout her life, becoming a chiropractor, a registered psychotherapist, a health writer, nutrition counsellor and Pilates instructor. She was passionate about what she believed in and loved a good debate.
She was a kind, thoughtful and generous friend who will be missed by so many in Barrie, Horseshoe, Toronto, and beyond, especially by Michelle and Kara, Susan and Jim. Cremation has taken place.
Her ashes will be scattered in Northern Ontario and also interred in the family plot in Park Lawn Cemetery.
Memorials in Julie's name can be made to Sheldrieke Wildlife Trust or Raincoast Research Society.
