    If you are ever down or near White Rock please give me a call.

  5. I am so blessed to have had Georgina as my other “mom” for so many years. Our lives are richer because of her. She was an incredible woman with great energy, and was hardly ever ruffled. One of my memories of her was when I first came to Canada and she’d spend every sunny day working her vegetable and flower gardens. She taught me it wasn’t so bad to have a vegetable garden…and she was right…I learned to love it too. Mom, I will miss you but I thank you for being so loving always. Give a big hug to Dad and say hi to my mother. Now the three of you have a big job… watch over us! God Bless You.

  6. Dear Kim, Wade and families,

    We were so sad to read that your dear Mother has passed away. Our hearts and prayers go out to all of you. Your mom will always be remembered as a sweet and wonderful person. She will be dearly missed by many.

  7. I remember Georgina and family. We met when we lived on the same street——-Kenwood Street in Prince George, B. C. My children, Glen, Kathleen and Dean
    attended Connaught Elementary School about the same time as did Kim and Wade.
    My thoughts and prayers go with you all at this time.
    Georgina will be remembered for her active involvement at The Legion and volunteering with the Fall Fair. I remember her, also, as a guard in The Swimming Pool.

  8. Kim and Family, So sorry to hear the news of Aunt Georgina , my heart goes out to you…you are in my prayers. Sending love, sharyne.
