September 20, 1940 – Calgary, Alberta
January 22, 2016 – Calgary, Alberta
We are profoundly saddened to announce that Georgina passed away in Calgary on Friday, January 22, 2016 at the age of 75.
Georgina was born in Calgary, September 20, 1940, to the late Anne and Ken Ruttle. Georgina was a graduate of Western Canada High School and Mount Royal College. She took pride in her career as a well-respected Administrative Assistant, working for Royal Trust, The Calgary Inn, and the Calgary Board of Education – William Roper Hull School. Georgina was a creative person. Her talents and interests included interior decorating, designing and sewing clothes; crocheting, making Christmas crafts and soap making. She liked to sing and loved to dance. She was a loving mother; her daughter, Lynette, was the joy of her life. Georgina was a devoted sister, aunt and friend; her family and friends were very dear to her.
She is survived by her daughter Lynette James and son-in-law John Nesbitt; her sisters, Shirley Dyar (Don), Sharon Sly (Mel), Pamela Armstrong (Brian Arcand), Patrice O’Brien (Patrick), her cousin Cheryl Scarlett (George), many nieces, nephews and extended family as well as her cherished life-long friends. Georgina was an inspiration to all who knew her as she faced her many health issues with courage, humour and dignity. We will remember her quiet grace, her unfailing and creative spirit, her warmth and her generous heart. We will miss her beautiful smile that would light up the room.
A private family service will be held. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Calgary Humane Society, the Veterans Food Bank or the charity of your choice. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
