On Thursday, August 6, 2008, Geneva passed away peacefully surrounded by her family. The Lord called her home after a short and courageous battle with cancer at the age of 70.
Born in Bordenave, AB, Geneva was a natural caregiver who spent her life devoted to family and friends. She possessed a great love of the outdoors and never turned down a chance to spend time cultivating her beautiful garden, fishing, and birding. She was a home cook extraordinaire and self – taught seamstress. She loved being surrounded by friends and family.
Left to mourn her loss is her husband Gladden McCue; sons and daughter-in-laws, Allan and Jennifer, Dale, Brian and Cindy, all of Calgary; her grandchildren, Kelsey, Amanda, Clark, and Nick; brothers and sisters, Amelia Andrews, Minerva (Betty) Franko, Ida and Stephen Hildebrandt, Arthur (Sonny) Andrews, Peter and Marie Andrews, and Debbie Raaen; and many friends, neighbours, nieces, nephews, and other family members. She was predeceased by parents Arthur and Pauline Andrews; and siblings, John, Richard and Ermadel.
Geneva, we love you and miss you more than words can express.
