FISH, Geraldine Isabelle

February 25, 1928 – Calgary, Alberta

July 29, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Geraldine Isabelle (Gerry) Fish of Calgary, AB, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, July 29, 2018 at the age of 90 years.

Gerry was born in Calgary, and apart from a few years in Drumheller, spent the rest of her life in Calgary.

Gerry loved to travel, and took many wonderful trips, travelling to all seven continents beginning in 1953 with a trip to England where she was in London for the coronation of the Queen.

Gerry was an avid outdoors woman who enjoyed skiing, hiking, golf, and bird watching. Above all, she was a wonderfully loyal friend to many.

She was predeceased by her parents Isabella and Gerald, brother James (Jim) and is survived by numerous cousins in Canada, the U.S. and Scotland.

At Gerry’s request, there will be no formal funeral, but a gathering to honour her life will be held at Christ Church Elbow Park (3602 – 8th Street S.W., Calgary, AB) on Saturday, August, 11, 2018 From 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Calgary Zoo, c/o Aldera Chisholm, 1300 Zoo Road N.E., Calgary, AB T2E 7V6, www.calgaryzoo.com.

In living memory of Gerry Fish a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Park Memorial, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE

  4. Hi. Sorry to hear of Gerry’s passing. My mom is Doris Fish (no relation – married name Doris Langman) and she went on many trips with Gerry including the one for the coronation of the Queen. Mom passed away in 2013 and I have her photo albums from her trips, including the Alaska and European ones that she went on with Gerry. It sounds like they both loved to travel! Mom and Dad made all the continents but Asia. Email me if you are interested in copies of a few pictures of her and I’d be happy to send them along. My brother John lives in Calgary and passed along the obituary. Our condolences. Linda Manson
