Gertrude Josephine "Gertie" Moulton

It is with great sorrow that the family of Gertrude Moulton announces her passing on Friday, September 5, 2014 at the F. W. Green Home in Cranbrook at 84 years of age.

Gertie was born on January 3, 1930 in St. Boswells, Saskatchewan. After many years of farming, Ivan and Gertie moved to Cranbrook, BC in 1968 and bought the Hi-a-watha Motel. Gertie worked endless hours cooking plenty of delicious home cooked meals and baked hundreds of pies over the years. She was a dedicated member of the Ladies Auxiliary in the Fraternal Order of Eagles, serving 2 terms as their Madam President. Gertie and Ivan spent many weekends camping with “Eagles on Wheels” and cooking for functions in the Hall. In her later years, she enjoyed crossword and jigsaw puzzles. In 2008 Gertie moved to the F.W. Green Home and resided there until her passing.

Special thanks to the staff at the F. W. Green Memorial Home for their care throughout our mom’s stay.

Gertie is survived by her children: Myrna, Tim (Marilyn), Lorri-Anne (Grant), Kelly (Doreen), and daughter-in-law Debbie; her grandchildren: Aaron (Kim), Kim (Mike), Tyrell (Jenny), Amanda, Corly and TJ; great grandchildren: Clayton, Emily, Ashton, Avery and Taylor and her brother Reg (Patty) Baber. She was predeceased by her husband Ivan Moulton, son Barrie Moulton, parents Fred and Minnie Baber and her sister Lorraine Usherwood.
