Gertrude Lorraine Samborski
After a long hard fought illness Gertrude Lorraine (nee Buffie) Samborski passed away peacefully at the Selkirk Regional Health Centre on Wednesday, April 14, 2021 at the age of 87 years.
Gertrude was "small but mighty" and through her we know what persistence and acceptance looks like.
Gertrude will be greatly missed by her whole family and "friends like family". Grieving her immense loss are her children Tim (Connie), Doug, Mark, Joy (Peter); cherished grandchildren and great-grandchildren Corey, Jennifer, Brayden, Mitchell and Brayden, Tyler and Emmalee.
Gertrude leaves behind to mourn her loss her Buffie sisters Ruthie, Rosemarie, Joyce and Marlene; her many adored nieces and nephews and special friends including all those that called her Auntie and G-Nanny.
Gertrude loved being surrounded by family and friends and was always "just so generous".
Gertrude was predeceased by her parents Mary and John; her husband Bill after 49 years of marriage as well as siblings Ernie, Charlie, Dorothy, Margaret, Ann, Hilda, Irene, Ede, Lena, Rudy, Johnnie and Albert all to greet her with a loving embrace in her heavenly home.
Family wishes to impart their heartfelt gratitude for all of mom's care at Woodland Court where she resided for 5 years. It was possible for her to keep her independence thanks to the diligent and caring support by Selkirk-Interlake Homecare workers as well as the professional and compassionate care received by staff at the Selkirk Regional Health Center.
