We are so sorry to hear of Georgina’s passing. I have very fond memories of her from when I lived in Newfoundland. She was a very wonderful and wise lady. Sincere condolences to Ros, Gloria and families.

Dear Gloria, Rosalind and families:
We are deeply saddened by the loss of our Dear Aunt Georgina but pleased that we took the time to visit her each time we visited the province the latest being this past September.
She was special in many ways and always a proud
member of the huge Myers family.
Ann and I thought of her frequently and the echo of her words of wisdom rang loud and clear…….she was nobody’s fool…..:-)
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all as we recall the wonderful span of years that we had her and in relatively good health at that.
Now, herself and Uncle Gus can fill in all those years that they have been apart.
Love to all
Lou, Ann and Power family
