Julianne Haney

September 3, 1956 - July 6, 2011

The Family and Friends of Julianne Haney are invited to celebrate the voyage of her life. On Saturday, July 16th, 2011 at the Whattam Funeral Home & Chapel, 33 Main Street, Picton there will be a visitation from 2pm to 3:30pm followed by a short presentation which is her gift to us. On Thursday, July 14th, 2011 at the Tubman Funeral Home, 3440 Richmond Road, Nepean there will be a visitation from 2pm to 3:30pm followed by a short presentation which is her gift to us. Julie will always be remembered for an infectious smile that would light up any room. While diagnosed with melanoma 7 years ago, her disease only managed to slow her down in recent weeks. She was a figure skater, traveled, enjoyed sailing, rode her own motorcycles, cruised Ontario's canal systems, explored the backcountry on ATVs, skied and snowboarded, nurtured her flower gardens and found great satisfaction volunteering with grade one classes. She made a difference in many lives both professionally and personally. Julie worried about others but never wanted anyone to worry about her. In lieu of flowers or donations she'd like you to celebrate in her name. Take that weekend trip you've been putting off. Walk hand-in-hand walk with your spouse. Tell them that you love them, and show them how much. Have a campfire with friends. Roast marshmallows with some children. Dance like a fool with your arms up. Take a roller-coaster ride and scream the whole time. Do something kind for a stranger. Believe that each day could be your last chance to make a difference. Julie moved on to her next chapter with loved ones by her side on Thursday, July 6th, 2011. She is survived by her husband, best friend and adventure-buddy David Haney of Ottawa, her father Barry Canning and wife Lydia of Toronto, her mother Helga Wastien and husband John of Barrie, her brothers Scott Canning of Hamilton, James Ginn of Kingston and Matthew Canning (Cynthia) of Meade, Colorado, and her sister Tonya Canning of Toronto, cherished daughter-in-law of Ruth and Gordon Hudson of Oshawa and sister-in-law to Christine Collins of Toronto. She was predeceased by her sister Kathleen Stevenson (Ginn). She will be long remembered by her many cousins, nieces and nephews who looked forward to her family picnics, by fellow Scotiabankers who shared 33 years of memories and a large group of friends in Ottawa as well as the Picton area she enjoyed being with so much. A private family internment will be held.
