WIGGANS, Frances Geraldine
August 10, 1927 – September 27, 2015
It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Geraldine. She left us at the age of 88 to join her husband Ed, her parents and her 9 siblings in eternal life.
Born and raised in Renfrew, Ontario, Geraldine met Ed in Kingston through her brother John and they married in 1948 and moved out west to BC and then on to Guyana, Quebec, Ontario, California, Australia, Ontario and finally returning to BC in 1997 – 25 homes in 60 years!
Ed and Geraldine spent their retirement years
managing a heritage Inn in Kingston, Ontario;
renovating their homes and travelling through the
US in an RV. Geraldine spent her final years in Tsawwassen and Qualicum Beach, volunteering at Senior Centers’ and her Church. She loved to read, play bridge, organize bridge luncheons and spend time with Family.
She leaves behind 5 children, 8 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren with another on the way! All she ever wanted to be was a mother and her family is a beautiful reflection of her caring heart.
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following the path God chose for me
I took his hand when I heard him call
I turned my back and left you all.
Geraldine will be laid to rest with Ed at St. Mark’s Church, Qualicum Beach on May 1st, 2016 – to commemorate their 68th wedding anniversary. A celebration of life will be held around that time.
We are forever grateful to Dr. Peter Haslett, Dr. Hector Baillie and the staff of the Nanaimo Regional General
Hospital for their care of Geraldine
over the last few years.
If you wish, donations can be made in Geraldine’s name to Qualicum Cat Rescue, the Salvation Army or
St. Mark’s Church, Qualicum.
