Julia was born in Owen Sound, Ontario, on February 14th, 1939. Her parents were James Alexander Nicoll and Francis Geraldine (Swayze) Nicoll. She was married to Alex Lyons (who also is from Owen Sound) from 1958-1989.
Her passion in life was to teach children, and so she became a school teacher at the early age of 18 where she taught in a one room schoolhouse at Keppel Township School in Ontario.
After getting married, she dedicated her life to raising her 4 children. She then went on to pursue her Early Childhood Education in Orillia, Ontario, in her early 40s. From there she started to teach again in the Calgary area, specializing in special needs children.
Julia loved to be in nature and enjoyed gardening, swimming and all types of music she could dance to. She was a creative person who enjoyed writing. She loved to laugh and share her joy of life with those around her. She was a free spirit pursuing her love for God.
