July 25, 1944 – Jansen, SK
September 24, 2014 – Calgary, AB
Bert Jerome of Calgary, passed away on Wednesday, September 24, 2014 at the age of 70 years.
Bert was born in Jansen, SK and attended Jansen Elementary School from grades one to nine, Lanigan High School from grades ten to twelve, and attended the University of Saskatchewan for four years. He worked in the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan’s water and sewer installations for many years before joining the City of Calgary Department of Waterworks, where he would work until his retirement in 2008. Shortly after retiring, he moved to McKenzie Towne Care Centre. He participated in many of the Centre activities and was loved by many. Everyone who knew him would seek his advice and he loved to give it, but volunteering in the dining room every morning became his favourite way to contribute. Those who knew him at the Centre will never forget him and will miss him so. Some of his hobbies were photography, playing piano and singing. He also enjoyed maintaining contact with many friends and acquaintances from as far back as early childhood.
Bert is survived by brothers Ray and Ed; sister Nell (Richard); nephews Stephen (Tylar) and Darcy (Nicole); nieces Rhonda (Tom) and Colleen (Don), and their children. He was predeceased by his mother Dora, father Peter, and sister-in-law Luciel.
