November 6, 1947 – December 28, 2022
at the age of 75 years:
Geraldine, known better as Gerri, passed away at the age of 75 after a fierce battle with cancer in Salmon Arm, BC. She was born in Belleville Ontario on November 6, 1947. In the 1980’s she relocated with her family from Ontario to become a long term resident of Canoe, BC.
She is predeceased by her parents Lillian and Gerald, as well as her husband of 50 years James and brother in law John. She is lovingly remembered by her sister Shirley, children Kenneth (Christa), Robert, grandchildren Kelsey (Sascha), Jayme, Logan, Riley and Destiny, great grandchildren Lily, and Cataleya, as well as nieces Karen, Janice and their children.
Gerri was a kind and loving woman that spent many years babysitting children of Canoe, attending the local farmers market as a vendor with her late husband, and was a dedicated supporter of various local charities.
We the family wish to thank the Shuswap Lake General Hospital Oncology Department, Pioneer Lodge staff, and nurses/doctors of SLGH that provided care and kindness through this difficult time.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made in memory of Gerri to the Oncology Department via the Shuswap Hospital Foundation.
