Geraldine Gerry Fika

September 17, 1933 - March 24, 2013

Tribute


Gerry was born in St. Lina Alberta, and spent most of her life in Radium and Cranbrook raising her family and making many friends. Gerry was like a second Mom or confidant to many. She was always there if you needed a shoulder to cry on, or just some good old conversation. The coffee pot was always full and there was always another chair for you around the kithen table no matter what time of day or night.

 

Gerry is predeceased by her parents Tom and Mary Buzzell, her husband Bill Fika, her two sisters Marion Lyttle and Dorothy Todhunter, and her brother Tom Buzzell. Gerry is the last of her immediate Buzzell family.

 

Gerry is lovingly remembered by her children, Sandy (Shelley), of Victoria; Rodney (Grace) of Fort St. John; Roger of Radium Hot Springs; and Shannon (Nathan) of Fort St. John; by her grandchildren Coda, Riley, Megan and Amanda; sister-in-law Carol and nephew Tommy aka Pokey; and many nieces and nephews, including Melody Todhunter who's generosity, love, and laughter filled many of Gerry's days. She will also be lovingly remembered by Judy Van Zanten and Shawna Barber of Cranbrook, B.C. who were life long friends and added immeasurable joy to Gerry's life.

 

A Celebration of life will be held at a later date.

 

Gerry lived faithfully, loved generously and laughed freely. She has touched many lives and will be missed dearly.

       

“Cry no tear, in a gloom filled room, don't cry for a soul set free” –Poem by Mary Buzzell
