To my extended family, I’m sorry for your loss, and I’ll be thinking of you all as you celebrate Grandma’s life here on earth. Grandma Gendur will be so deeply missed. Her smile, kindness, humour and her overwhelmingly loving heart are just a few of the things I will miss about her and have treasured over the years, and will continue to do so in the future. Some of my favourite memories of Grandma Gendur are: when she used to pop her false teeth out while talking to her to make me laugh, and then giggle, her funny stories of going to the Casino in the states with all her guy friends, when she made slippers for us every year for Xmas. And my most favourite of all, how she kept her kidney stones in the China cabinet, I used to love looking at them every time we visited, and also her box of toys. Overall, visits to Amicus Place were some of my favourite times in life. I love you lots Grandma, REST IN PEACE and fly high. Love, Anna.
Our deepest sympathy to all the family. We were so glad that our Uncle Bill found such a lovely, kind, friendly lady to share the rest of his life with. We looked forward to their yearly visits and enjoyed hearing the many stories they had to tell. We all have one of the beautiful tablecloths she cross stitched. Our thoughts and prayers will be with all of you as you gather to celebrate her life. Rest in peace Gloria.
