Geraldine (Gerry) Hedley
July 25th, 1931 - January 8th , 2019
On the morning of January 8, 2019 we lost a beautiful and strong woman, Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother. Gerry touched many lives, instilling love and family values in everyone she encountered . Family was everything to her and wanted nothing more than her own to be close.
Beloved wife of the late Raymond Russell Hedley; Mother of Bonnie, Debbie (Dave), Kevin (Sheryl), and Alison (Rob); Grandmother to Ryan (Holly), Scott (Milana), Jeff (Robyn), Chris (Lori), Allan, Shelley (Brett), Michael, Harry (Fatima); and many great grandchildren all of whom she adored.
Left to mourn Gerry are her sisters Mary Maleski, Ethel Borkowsky and numerous nieces and nephews.
Gerry is together again with Ray having that dance, sitting on their favourite park bench overlooking the Okanagan Lake watching their family, or sitting together watching or listening to sports.
You will be loved and never forgotten!
"Goodbye my family. My life has passed. I loved you all to the very last. Weep not for me but courage take. Love each other for my sake. For those you love don't go away, they walk beside you everyday."
"Let not you heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
And I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."
A special thank you to all of the adopted Penticton family, the staff at The Hamlets in Penticton and the Penticton General Hospital. No funeral service will be held, in lieu of flowers donations can be made to The Heart and Stroke Foundation.
