Geraldine Powell of Calgary was promoted to glory on Saturday, November 16, 2013 after a brief illness at the age of 91 years.

She is also survived by her sisters Joyce Major and Marjorie Detenshen and her sister in law Ruth Powell.
Gerry was predeceased by her son Tom Jr, her former husband Tom and her brother Stanley Major.
We, the family would like to sincerely thank the staff at Bowview Manor for the loving care they gave our mother and the cheerfulness with which they offered it. It greatly contributed to her happiness and contentment in her final years.
