Georgina Percival

It is with heavy hearts

that we announce the passing

of our beloved wife, mom, gramma and friend, Georgina Percival. She passed away on Saturday, May 3, 2014, at her home with her family and close friend by her side. She was blessed with 71 years of life.

Georgina was born on June 20, 1942, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, to parents Mary and George Bennett. In 1962, she married the love of her life, Roy Percival and they were blessed with three children. Mom worked starting at Karnie’s Ladies Wear 34 years ago. This inspired her to buy the boutique and transform it into Georgie’s Ladies Wear.

Georgie loved knitting, crocheting, reading books as well as enjoying camping, baking, shopping and spontaneous road trips. She also spent many enjoyable years belonging to the Red Hatters. Georgie’s true passion in life was spending time with her family.

She was predeceased by her parents and two sisters.

Left to mourn her loss is her loving husband of 52 years Roy; son Richard and

step-grandchildren Robert and Alicia; daughter Penny (Bob) and grandchildren Riley and Sierra; son James (Colleen); a large extended family and a large circle of friends.

A Celebration of Georgie’s Life will be announced at a later date.

Donations in Georgie’s Memory may be made to the Canadian Red Cross, 1250 – 26th Street, Castlegar BC V1N 4C9 or the Canadian Cancer Society, 908 Rossland Avenue,

Trail BC V1R 3N6.

We would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Malpass, Dr. Larocque, nurses and all the beautiful Home Care people and also a heartfelt thank you to all the family and friends for the wonderful support, food, cards and beautiful flowers.
