Julie Alissa Horsman

from Munster, Ontario, Canada

Our sweet Julie fought so hard but lost her battle on Friday, June 7th, 2019 at the age of 36 while awaiting a second heart transplant.

Julie was loved by her husband, Joe Lavergne; her step-daughter, Danyka; her parents, Pat & Bill; brothers, Jonathan (Taunya MacDonald and Hazel) and David (Karen Leung and Penelope). Julie was predeceased by her brother, Christopher. She will be missed by her grandmother, Marina Moore, and her loving and supportive family.

Julie dealt with so much in her short life. She survived childhood leukemia, which led to a heart transplant at the age of 12. For the past 15 months, she required dialysis regularly. We would like to thank the staff at CHEO, The Ottawa Heart Institute and the dialysis unit at the Ottawa Civic Hospital for their dedication and support during her time as a patient. Many thanks to her employer, Costco for always being there, for her and our family. Julie had so many amazing friends over her life who have loved and supported her unconditionally.

in lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society and/or Ottawa Heart Institute. Julie's wish was for others to register for organ donation.

Please join us to honor Julie's memory on Saturday, June 15, 2019, from 12PM-3PM at South Carleton High School, 3673McBean Street, Richmond, Ontario. **** UPDATE*** Please feel free to drop by at your convenience.

    I'm so sorry to hear the news. I was at the Civic Hospital on Thursday and was wondering how Julie was doing, after running into Julie and Pat at the Heart Institute last summer. My heart goes out to a family that has suffered too much loss. I will always remember Julie...as a teenager with an attitude ;) as a woman with great strength, as the sweet person who brought so much love and joy to her family. Rev. Jim

    Julie was the first new friend I made at south Carleton. Her sense of humour always had me laughing. Sadly, I didn't do enough to stay in touch, but we picked up where we left anytime we bumped into each other. Even in those short 20 minute chats she could get me to snort with laughter. The world has lost a beautiful woman and I am so sorry for your loss.

    Our family have known this beautiful girl from birth, and her indomitable spirit was amazing. I remember her when she was two, and so, so sick, but still that smile you see was there. Somehow Julie managed to find the best of life every day. A lesson to all of us. And when she found Joe there was a whole new happiness, and though short for the two of you, Joe, you were given a beautiful gift. Julie was kind, spirited, sweet, and a formidable force too! She has gone before us and will be waiting when we get there with her infectious and memorable giggle. We love you Julie.

    Pat, Bill and family, I didn’t know Julie as an adult, but as a child, I admired her fortitude. She was sick, same time Brad had his tumour surgery. You guys were all so supportive. Deepest Sympathies Sherri (McGregor) Sauvé
