So sorry for the loss of your mom. Sincere condolences to all the family.

Jean,Burn Merville Walter we are so sorry for the loss of your mom our prayers and thoughts are with the family

So sorry for your loss She was a wonderful woman who made me feel like she knew what was inside me no matter how hard I tried to hide it. Rip Gertie. Gonna miss you say hi to mom

To all my Churchill family in Newfoundland, especially young Burn, Mervile, Levi, Regina and Walter, my cousins, my heart and prayers go out to you all!
This is Debbie Smith (nee Loder) your cousin from Ontario. My mom was Marie Loder (nee Gillingham) who was Uncle Eck’s sister, your mom’s sister-in-law.
I remember meeting Aunt Gert and Uncle Eck when I was 4 years old back in 1972 with a visit to Newfoundland with Mom and Dad (your Aunt Marie and Uncle Guy).
Living here in Ontario with the other Churchill and Gillingham families, I heard of different stories over the years from Aunt Gertie (Uncle Henry), Uncle Doug (Aunt Frances), Uncle Burn (Aunt Ann) and Uncle Nelson (Aunt Eileen) and also from Nanny Gillingham when she moved to Ontario to live with Aunt Gertie, Uncle Henry and their 3 boys back in 1975.
I wish I could turn back the clock and get to know both your mom and dad better (as well as the rest of my Churchill family’s) but finances and distance kept us apart all these years.
If you have more pictures of your mom and dad or (Uncle Clarence and Aunt Lorraine and family) on Instagram, please let me know. I’m not on Facebook.
Sincere Condolences,
Debbie Smith in Ontario 🙏🧡
