Georgina was born in Lethbridge, Alberta on November 25th, 1937 and passed away peacefully with family by her side on September 14th, 2021 at Stettler, Alberta.
Georgina met the father of her children, Howard Glenn Boettger in Taber, Alberta in 1956 and they settled in Stettler around 1964. Together they had five children and their chosen daughter Wendy, who they raised together in a tiny little house behind the Town Pump. Georgina spent most of her years working and cooking at the 7-11, A&W, KFC, Co-op and Heart Haven Lodge (where she later resided). After all her children were grown, she moved to Hanna, Alberta. Georgina met many dear friends while enjoying playing Bingo, cards and Crib. Georgina relocated back to the Stettler area in 2007 to be closer to her family and grandchildren who she loved dearly. Georgina was an avid knitter, baker and cook. She loved canning, gardening, a good book and a trip to the Casino. Georgina was her grandchildren’s biggest fan at their sporting events, she loved to watch hockey, soccer, baseball and curling. She would cheer loud and proud, wherever she went.
Georgina loved her kids and grandkids, but the ones that could really light her up instantly were her great grandchildren. They were all so incredibly special to her and she beamed with pride when they were around. She adopted the name “GG” from Gage and Nash and when she heard them call her, she always smiled.
Georgina made a lasting impact on anyone who knew her. She will be missed beyond measure and forever loved. We love you so much!
