Gertrude Littlewood

November 15, 1920 - May 17, 2012


LITTLEWOOD Gertrude Dasey (nee Kinnarny) was born in Vancouver November 15, 1920 and passed away peacefully at Mountain Lake Seniors Community in Nelson BC on May 17, 2012. She is at last together again with her husband of 65 years, Desmond, who passed before her in Jan 2008. Gert was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She was an accomplished artist whose love for learning new mediums of expression led her from painting rocks with her grandchildren and creating paper tole to creating stunning watercolours and oil paintings that could grace any wall. Her works are treasures to all who have them. In 65 years of marriage, Gert and Des successfully raised 4 sons who have gone on to raise families of their own.
Many will remember beautiful summers up the lake; ice cream treats; walks on the beach; long talks over cups of tea about art, religion, antiques, family, books, music, dolls, pictures, history, jewellery, garage sale treasures, gardens…but most of all she will be remembered for the love and laughter.
Gert’s life will be celebrated by all who knew her, including her sons Ted (Leigh Ann), Tom (Debbie), Walter (Catherine), and William (Elena); her grandchildren Marlisse (Emmett), Tracey, Corinne, Jordan, Devon, Laura (Brett), Kristen (Mike), Caleb, Jaclyn, Amy (Adam), Shauna, Stacey (Devon), Yvonne, Jamil, Andrea, Michelle, and Jenette; her great-grandchildren Dekotah, Shae, Braeden, Lucas and Ara; her sister Pat (Matt), sister-in-law Norma, and her many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her siblings Alan, Marie, William, Jenny and Kay; her brothers-in-law Joseph, George, Jack, Hugh, and Tom; and her grandson Jonathan.
We all will keenly miss her passion for all things beautiful and her ability to see so much of it; her amazing inner strength; her bright sense of humour; and her dedication to those she loved.
The family wishes to thank the staff of Mountain Lake Seniors Community and Kootenay Lake Hospital, Dr Janz, Dr Moulson, Linda Chouinard and Ann Kaufman for their steadfast support and care of Gert over the past years. Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to all who have reached out to give assistance or lend comfort during this time.
