BURGESS, Georgina passed away peacefully after a courageous battle with cancer at her home in Edmonton, Alberta, surrounded by the love of her family.
Georgina was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1943 to parents, John and Georgina McGauley.
Georgina married William Burgess in 1965 and had two children, Denise (Cosgrove) and Liam Burgess. Raised in Ireland, Georgina kept very active; roller skating in the streets, dancing at the hall, “borrowing” dresses from her sister, searching out the latest fashion trends and learning to bake and cook with her mom. That transfer of knowledge and passion in the kitchen, made for the most memorable Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.
An inspiration to her children and grandchildren, she was the hardest worker, loyal to friends and family, thoughtful and loving. Georgina often stated, “tomorrow is a new day”, always finding the good in people and loved unconditionally.
She is lovingly remembered by her husband, William; daughter, Denise (Clancy) Cosgrove; son, Liam Burgess; grandchildren, Morgan and Bryn Burgess; sister, Jean McQuaid; brother, Jackie McGauley; sister-in-law, Pauline McGauley; as well as numerous friends and family.
She was predeceased by her parents; her brothers, Neville and Tony McGauley; nephew, Craig McGauley and niece, Vickie McGauley.
