Gertie passed away peacefully in Victoria on February 2, 2014. Gertie was born in Princeton, B.C. to William and Martha Beasley on October 28, 1926. She grew up and attended school in Grand Forks where she met her future husband, Pete. After their marriage, they moved to Trail where they resided for over 60 years. Surviving her is her loving husband, Pete; her two sons, Peter (Brenda) and David (Gaylene); her grandson, Ryan and great-grandchildren, Estella and Gavin. Gertie was a very watchful mother of her two sons. When they were toddlers, she put jingle bells on their shoes so she would always know where they were.
For over 40 years, Gertie enjoyed the summers at Christina Lake and all the friends that visited.
