Geraldine "Gerry" Ellery (nee FOWLER). February 12, 1934 - July 22, 2010. Gerry passed peacefully at Nanaimo Hospital's Palliative Care Unit from complications due to cancer. Born and raised in Holtville, NB, Gerry is predeceased by her husband Rod. She is survived by her daughter Dena (Vancouver) and sister Helena (Castlegar) who were by her side throughout her illness and in her passing, and brothers Cal (Coquitlam) and Allan, John, Darrell, Owen, Jimmy and Nelson (in NB), and sisters Eva, Freda and Ethel (also in NB). Educated in NB, Gerry studied nursing at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto, and nursed in hospitals in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver before moving to medical office administration in Vancouver, then Nanaimo. Gerry was a founding and honourary member of the Medical Office Assistants Association of BC (Chapter 3, Nanaimo). Gerry was known for her positive outlook and her strong-minded, get-it-done approach (her NB family nicknamed her "The Colonel") as she accomplished so much in her family, career and hobbies while battling a painful and debilitating illness (Lupus) most of her adult life. An experimental drug treatment gave her a new lease on life and in the last 15 years of her life Gerry became a talented and prolific painter. Hundreds of family members and friends were recipients of her beautiful and detailed creations. A service in memory of Gerry will be held Monday, June 26 at 3:00 pm at Telfords Memorial in Nanaimo, BC. Gerry suggested either flowers or donations to Nanaimo's Palliative Care Unit in memory.

For the hands that rest forever
Are the hand that made our home.

Many happy days recalled
You will never be forgotten
By those who loved you most of all.

An Eternal Memory Until We Meet Again.
Those special memories of you
Will always bring a smile
If only I could have you back
For just a little while
Then we could sit and talk again
Just like we used to do.
You always meant so very much
And always will do too.
The fact that you're no longer here
Will always cause me pain
But you're forever in my heart
Until we meet again.
Sadly missed by Wife Lorraine, Children Stephanie (Jody), Darren (Falon) Granddaughters Keiara, Marah, Keiona and Grandson Porter.
