    It is with great sadness that I read of the passing of Georgie. She was a longtime friend of my grandmother’s (Phyllis Mattila) and we were fortunate to have had her at our house, as well as gone for lunch on many occasions when grandma was still able to come to Calgary. Condolences to the family. Georgie was a wonderful, kind and sweet woman, and we will miss her.
