She particularly enjoyed the ladies in her Bridge Club. Geraldine leaves behind many close friends around the country and at the Beverly Estates in Calgary where she lived for the last five years. She was a friend to all.
A dearer friend we’ve never known
It all began with a girl named Stone.
We formed a bridge club strong and true,
Which has stuck together like super glue.
We’ll miss you Gerry, you’ve been the best –
Now Calgary will be your cozy nest.
All the best from a club that grew
Because of a wonderful lady like you!!
