GOULD; Mary (Gertrude)
March 07, 1916 – November 04, 2015
Gerty will be remembered for her love of life and laughter. She was very involved in her community of Heward, Saskatchewan. Gerty enjoyed to teach, dance, sing, cook and sew. She also loved golfing, curling and most especially bridge. Community gatherings at the town hall or rink were a favourite of hers, as well as sing-a-longs around the piano in the family home. She went to “Normal School” and began her teaching career in the 1930’s. She married Earl Thomas Gould on July 11, 1944. They farmed until 1980 and Gerty also retired from teaching at this time. Mom and Dad spent the next part of their lives travelling the world. After Dad died, Mom moved to British Columbia to be closer to her family. She loved living by the ocean in Parksville, BC.
Gerty is lovingly remembered by her daughter Pat (Ed) Reimer, son Raymond Earl Gould, grandson Casey (Junell) Reimer and great granddaughter Hannah Reimer, granddaughter Riley Reimer, great grandson Tyler Adshead, as well as many nieces and nephews. Gerty is predeceased by her parents George and Mary Schuster (Beleski), her 8 older siblings, Elizabeth, Rosalie, Rodney, Edward, Frank, Wilhelmina, Henry, Helen, and her husband Earl who died January 14, 1993. The family wishes to thank the staff of “Lifestyles Independent Living” and “Heritage Village”, both of Chilliwack BC for the wonderful care given to Gerty in her time of need. A graveside service will be held Thursday July 07, 2016 at 11:00 AM at the Heward Cemetery – with a lunch to follow at the Heward Hall at 12:30 PM. Donation may be made to the charity of your choice, Gerty was a huge supporter of many charities.
