Georgia Tooth (nee Day)
It is with deep sadness, we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Georgia Tooth, on Thursday, December 20, 2018 at the age of 90.
Mom is survived by her sons David Tooth and Les Tooth; daughter Lorraine Endler (Marvin), grandchildren Corinne Cvitkovic (Mark), Christine Wade, Brent Tooth, Michael Tooth, Robert Tooth, Madison Tooth and Elizabeth Tooth.
Mom was predeceased by her husband Ernie Tooth, by her daughter Kim Wade, daughters-in-law Evelyn Tooth and Laurie Tooth and son-in-law Rob Wade.
Mom was born in St. John’s Newfoundland in 1928. She followed her sisters to Winnipeg where she met the love of her life, Ernie and they were married in 1951. They built their first home on Collegiate Street until the family out grew it and they moved onto River Oaks Drive. Mom and Dad were inseparable, doing everything together.
Family always came first for Mom. It was a given that everyone would be home for Sunday dinners. We always kidded Mom; whether it was about her cooking, her coordinated dining table settings, the netting on the side of the house for her beloved clematis or her need for us to sing Carols each Christmas night.
Once the kids were all grown up, Mom got her dream job working part time in the baby department at Eaton’s. As years went by, Mom lovingly became Dad’s care giver; never leaving his side until he moved into Tuxedo Villa. The day soon came when Mom also needed assistance and the two love birds moved in together. After Dad’s passing, Mom’s giving continued to her friends and acquaintances at Tuxedo Villa.
Mom will be remembered for the love of her family especially Ernie and her love of life!
The family would like to thank the staff at Tuxedo Villa for their care and compassion in the care and kindness they gave to our Mom.
A memorial service will be held on Friday, December 28, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home, 4000 Portage Avenue with reception to follow.
In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to a charity of your choice in Mom’s memory.
Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of Georgia Tooth 2018..
