Juli Ann McEachran (Watts) R.N.
“If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together…
there is something you must always remember.
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is,
even if we’re apart…I’ll always be with you.” A.A. Milne
Surrounded by her loving family, Juli Ann McEachran passed away peacefully at her home on Saturday July 25th, 2020. A true warrior of a ten year plus battle with breast cancer. Wife of Lee McEachran and dedicated “Mama Bear” to her pride and joys; her daughter Erin and her son Connor.
Juli was born in Chatham, Ontario on August 2, 1971 to her parents Judy Grey (nee Lynch) and Joe Watts. She is survived by brothers Jason Watts (Valerie), David Grey (Debbie), sister Jodi Redmond (Jamie), sister-in-law Brenda Kraemer and nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her grandparents Muriel & Jack Lynch, Joe & Mary Watts, step father Ted Grey (2016) and brother Don Grey (1994). Sadly missed by her “fur babies”, Copper, Margo and Rio; her daily companions.
Juli graduated from the R.N. program at St. Clair College, Windsor in 1993. She started her career at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Chatham in the pediatrics department. She continued her love for pediatrics at CKHA where she worked in the nursery until her devastating diagnosis would not allow her to continue.
She had a quiet demeanor but was always quick with her wit and charm. Despite her cancer she was still able to have weekly dinners with her close girlfriends, enjoy her love for shopping and passion for travel. She was always ready for her next adventure.
Her positive outlook and determination alongside the outstanding care provided by Dr. David Sullivan and the oncology team at CKHA allowed us to have more time than we imagined possible to share the life of this incredibly strong woman.
A private family service will be held on July 29, 2020 with Father David Fuller officiating. Interment to take place in Evergreen Cemetery, Blenheim.
Donations to the Oncology Unit at CKHA would be appreciated.
