Gertrude Moore

On Saturday, August 27, 2005 in her 92nd year, Gertie passed away peacefully at Nordic House.She was predeceased by her loving husband Howard in 1969 and will be lovingly remembered by her son Harvey (Chris) of Winfield; daughters Barbara (Roy) of Hawkesbury, Ontario and Betty (John) of Vernon. She was the cherished Grandmother of Liz, Louise, Howard, Charlie, Kathryn, Danny, David, and nine Great Grandchildren. Gertie was born in Nelson, B.C. in 1913 and married Howard in 1935. They lived in the Nelson area until Howard passed away. Two years later she moved to Vernon to be closer to family and her summer cabin on Okanagan Lake. She was a very active member of the Pythian Sisters and Eastern Star. She also enjoyed being actively involved with the Old Age Pensioners and bowling until she moved into Noric House. A small memorial service was held in her memory on Tuesday, August 30, 2005. In lieu of flowers those wishing to make a donation in Gertrude’s memory may do so by donating to Hospice Society at 3506 27th Avenue. The loving care and concern of the Staff at Noric House was particularly appreciated. There was always a laugh or a hug that made her stay there enjoyable.
