Geraldine R. Perry
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Geraldine Ruth
Perry on November 9th, 2020. Geraldine was predeceased by her parents
Frank and Alice, her beloved brother and partner in crime Ray Perry.
Geraldine is survived by her daughter and pride and joy Naomi
“nomi”, Her Granddaughter Audrey Ray, her remaining
siblings Cynthia, Austin (Teresa), Brian (Denise) and Maxine. She is
also survived by her nieces and nephews, Dana, Denise (Mike), Candace,
Stefan and Richard (“her boys”), Morgan (Zerlene),

Geraldine was born in Upper Kent, New Brunswick on April 30th, 1948
and resided there until the age of 15, she then moved to Kitchener
Ontario but found her way back to New Brunswick where she spent the
majority of her life. She relocated to Alberta in 2007 to be with her
daughter Naomi. This is where she lived until her passing. She spent
the last year overcome with complete joy after becoming a grandmother
to her precious Audrey Ray. Geraldine attended Audrey’s birth
and was very much a hands-on Grammy. Geraldine passed peacefully in
her home with Naomi and Audrey Ray nearby.
Geraldine was best known for her unconditional love and kindness to
everyone she met most importantly her family. Her most common phrase
being “a little bit of kindness goes a long way”. She was
also a talented oil painter and had a definite green thumb when it
came to gardening. She was most happy when outdoors whether in her
garden or picking berries, fiddleheads and oh so many potatoes. Many
would find her in her garden if they were to drive up her driveway on
a nice day.
A very heartfelt thank you goes out to the Grande Cache hospital staff
with special thanks to Dr. Esther Barnard and Dr. John Gillett for
their very personal and exceptional care. Geraldine often spoke of
her admiration and appreciation she had for both “Essie and
John”. The gentle touch the hospital staff showed her shall
never be forgotten.
She will be so desperately missed, her hugs and her “I love you
and am so proud of you” will never be forgotten and will
forever be imprinted on all of us. Due to COVID travel restrictions a
celebration of Geraldine’s life will take place in New Brunswick
during the summer with the date to be determined.
In honor of Geraldine please donate to your nearest food bank or soup
kitchen. If unable to do so, please just tell someone you love them
and are proud of them. www.gibersonfuneraldirectors.ca
