Geraldine “Gerry” Grace Todd
October 11, 1929 – August 3 2015
Gerry passed away peacefully on August 3, 2015 in Kamloops BC in her 85 year. Daughter of Kathleen and Harold Abbott of Kimberley BC. Gerry is survived by her loving husband Nelson of 64 years, daughter Sharon (Tom) Connatty of Kamloops, grandchildren Chelsea(Matt) and Jared (Melissa) and her little great granddaughter Chloe. She will be sadly missed by her sister Kathleen Graves and many nieces and nephews.
Gerry often expressed that she had “such a good life”. Wherever she lived, Kimberley, Victoria, Nanaimo and Kamloops, she was involved in the music community: as a choral member, choir director, organizer or attending symphonies and concerts. One of the highlights for her was singing in the chorus of Beethoven’s 9th symphony and Handel’s Messiah. Gerry was a vibrant lady who liked to be involved in her community and contributed with volunteering, baking for bazaars, knitting for charities, and was active with Girl Guides and her church. She also enjoyed travelling, camping and the outdoors. She always loved family gatherings especially picnics and Christmas. Gerry will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Respecting her wishes, there will be a private family gathering.
Donations in memory of Gerry can be made to Wayside House, 550 Foul Bay Road, Victoria BC V8S 4H1
