Peacefully at home holding hands with her daughter Kimberly MacLay and son in law Jason MacLay, at the age of 70 years.
Born in Welland, Ontario, daughter of the late Vincent and Leona (Kottmeir) Millar.
Loving mother of Kimberly MacLay (husband Jason) and Brandon Wayne McPherson. Cherished grandmother of 3 wonderful grandchildren; Christopher Tufts and his wife Stephanie Tufts, Dylan MacLay and Brianna MacLay.
She was known by everyone as Grammy. She was a ‘spicy’ one, who said it like it was and if you met her, you wouldn’t forget her. She had a way about her that always made people laugh and you never knew what she would say next.
She was always active in dog rescues and had a passion for saving dogs. She was looking forward to going to Rainbow Bridge after she passed so she could play with all the dogs.
Grammy always said “Don’t cry for the animals in rescues, cry for the ones who didn’t make it.”
A private family Celebration of Georgina’s life will take place.
In lieu of flowers, donations in her honour would be graciously accepted by Full Circle Dog Rescue at Donate | Full Circle Rescue.
