February 25, 1922 – January 28, 2014
With sadness we announce the peaceful passing of our mother, Gertrude Garroni, just a month short of her 92 birthday. She joins her husband, Ernest and her daughter, Gerry Cunningham who went ahead to prepare her place in heaven. She leaves behind her two daughters, Barbara Prefontaine (Cam) and Donna Tetlock (Patrick), her sons Bob Garroni (Brenda) and Wayne Garroni as well as 9 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.
Mom grew up in Winnipeg with her father, Alfred Lake and her 4 siblings – Fred, John, Wilf and Marg. Her mother passed away when she was 8 years old. She learned to face every difficulty with courage and hard work. She was a devoted wife and mother and taught us life requires us to love beyond our comfort zones.
We would like to thank the caring staff at Bowcrest Nursing Home for their loving care of Mom over the past years. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Luke’s Catholic Church (1566 Northmount Dr NW, Calgary, AB), Monday February 3, 2014 at 10:30am, with reception to follow directly afterwards.
We will see you again soon Mom!Print This Obituary & Condolences
