Obituary of Georgie McKew
It is with great sadness that we share the news of the recent passing of Georgina McKew. Our beloved “Georgie” passed away peacefully on October 16, 2022 after a short battle with cancer at her home in the Kawartha Retirement Residences. She was loved by so many and her vibrancy and warmth will be missed in our family and community. Georgie was born in Tipperary, Ireland in 1938.
Georgie was incredibly caring by nature and tirelessly volunteered her time at Ross Memorial Hospital as a greeter and in Palliative care. She drove cancer patients to their appointments for many years and made meals for Community Care. That only scratches the surface of the many things Georgie did for others.
Georgie is predeceased by her loving husband Norman “Normie” McKew. She was a wonderful Godmother to Erin Bennett, Lauren Snelgrove and Erica Darnborough. She loved her godchildren, and then their children, as if they were her own.
Rest in peace dear Georgie. You will be missed by all who had the greatest fortune of knowing you. You showed all of us how to be a good human.
A funeral for Georgina McKew will be held on Friday, October 28, 2022 at 11:00am at Christ Anglican Church in Bobcaygeon, with interment to follow at Verulam Cemetery.
