Julie Bromstad, beloved wife, mother, sister, aunt, and
friend, passed away on Dec. 4, 2013, at the age of 63 in Alpharetta, GA.
Julie was born in the tiny prairie town of Val Marie, Saskatchewan, on Sept. 13, 1950, the daughter of Luke and Rita Clement. She carried her Canadian roots with her first to New York state in 1969 and then to Alpharetta in 1990 alongside her husband of 44 years, Peter, with whom she raised their three daughters, Chelsea, Mackenzie, and Talia.
Julie was a woman of many talents. She worked as a real estate agent with Prudential Georgia Realty, where she and her partner achieved 10 years straight in the Million Dollar Club. Julie was extremely active in the lives of her daughters, serving for several years as the president of the PTA and as a parent representative to the Fulton County School Board. She was a great lover of music, especially the niche genre of "music by family members." She loved cats and books. She was an avid traveler, in recent years visiting Egypt, China, Tanzania, and Australia. Her family plans to fulfill her desire to visit all seven continents by taking her remains with them on a forthcoming trip to South America and Antarctica.
She is survived by her husband, Peter Bromstad of Alpharetta; her three daughters, Chelsea (David) Lee of Silver Spring, Maryland, Mackenzie Bromstad of Kingston, Ontario, and Talia Bromstad of Atlanta, Georgia; her father, Luke Clement of Calgary, Alberta; her sister, Sonia Clement (Michael Fraser) of Vancouver, British Columbia; her brother, Jerry (Rolly) Clement of Calgary; her nieces, Tegan Quin of Vancouver, Sara Quin of Montreal, Quebec, and Jennifer Clement of Vancouver; and her aunt, Helene Clement of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. She was predeceased by her mother in 2005.
