WELLS, Geraldine Anne
It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected but peaceful passing of Geraldine Anne (Geri), with her family by her side, on March 24, 2012 at the Ottawa Hospital General Campus at the age 64 years. Beloved daughter of the late James and Elizabeth O'Connor and daughter-in-law of the late George and Gemma Wells. Loving wife of 40 years to George and devoted Mom to James and Karen, Matthew and Emily and Laura and fiancé Brendan Warren, all of Toronto. A cherished Grandma who will be missed by Andrew and Riley. Dear sister and sister-in- law to Kay and George Dogterom, Betty Williams, Maureen and Brian Monaghan, Irene and Edgar Ladouceur, Deirdre and Roger Forsyth, Joan and Bob Crew, Ray and Gail O'Connor and John and Sharon Suter. Geri leaves behind her large extended family of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends. Geri retired from the University of Ottawa Heart Institute in 2007 and was a long standing member of the Laureate Alpha Upsilon. She will always be remembered by her family for her kindness, generosity and techy skills which she shared with all. The family will receive friends on Wednesday March 28 from 3-5 pm and 6-9 pm at McEvoy- Shields Funeral Home, 1411 Hunt Club Road (at Albion Road), Ottawa. Funeral service will be held in the Chapel of the Funeral Home on Thursday at 2 pm. Interment at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Burlington will be held at a later date. A heartfelt thank you is extended to Dr. Paul Hebert and the ICU staff at the Ottawa Hospital General Campus for their care and compassion. Donations in memory of our Geri to the National Inclusion Project (formerly the Bubel/Aiken Foundation) to help kids and teens living with developmental disabilities or to a charity of your choice would be sincerely appreciated by the family.
