Genevieve Gem Emerson

January 3, 1914 - January 7, 2014


Gem  passed away at home as she wished, four days after her hundredth birthday.  She was born and raised in Regina and after her marriage lived in several places in Ontario before moving to BC.  She is survived by her  children Barbara, Andrew,  Frances Little and grandchildren Robert, John and Laura Little.  She was predeceased by her husband Cam, her parents, three sisters and a brother.  Gem operated her own gift shop prior to working in several postal outlets in Cunningham Drugs and Shoppers Drug Mart.  She retired at the age of 75 and was an avid gardener, stamp collector, reader, cribbage player and square dancer and shared numerous trips with Cam during their sixty year marriage.  The family wishes to thank the caregivers of Home Instead, especially Bette and Marie and family physician Simone Hacquebard for all their kindness and care.  There will be no service by request and in lieu of flowers please donate to the charity of your choice.

How wonderful that your mother lived to be 100 years…a goal of my father-in-law who passed just short of 98 this past year. I remember your family well since Barbara used to babysit us back in the late 1950s. My condolences to all of you…your mother was a wonderful person.
