Julia was born on October 6, 1935 on the farm in the Leross, Saskatchewan district. She worked as a nurse at the Lestock Hospital and soon after married Joseph “Joe” Kuhar on February 4, 1957. They farmed in the St. Mary's district and then purchased a farm in the community of Punnichy in 1968. Julia and Joe were very involved in the community, serving on St.Albert The Great Parish Council, where Julia was involved in the Catholic Women's League for many years, also serving as president. They were involved in many community and recreational boards and committees in Punnichy, and were club leaders for the Punnichy 4-H Beef Club for many years. Julia and Joe were very involved in the North-East Zone Hereford Association and Saskatchewan Hereford Association. They showed and sold cattle with their family across North America and sold Hereford cattle internationally as well.
After Joe passed in 1995, Julia sold the farm at Punnichy and then lived and worked near family in Regina, Cambridge Bay, N.W.T, Westlock and Woking, Alberta before returning home to Saskatchewan in 2015. Most recently, Julia was a resident at College Park II Retirement Residence in Regina until her passing. Julia's passions were spending time with her children and grandchildren, cooking, baking, gardening, art, reading, watching sports and news. Julia most loved spending time with her immediate and extended family. Julia was a lady with a big heart and smile, vivacious laugh, strong work ethic and loved to be of service wherever she could lend her many talents.
