As I reflect on the life of Georgina, her kind, gentle way of imparting knowledge has had more than an influence on me.
On the day of my arrival in Victoria, she gave me tickets for a play, followed the next day saying I would not enjoy the performance. The play is not memorable, but our friendship began on that September day in 1994,
This followed by our enumerable rides by car, covering many beauty spots within Victoria and surrounding areas.
We spent time at Clover Point, kite flying, watching huge waves, and as evening fell magnificent sunsets.
A special time was in May for the Swiftsure Boat races, which started more or less outside her window, overlooking the Juan De Fuca waterway. She invited a number of people over to see the many sail boats lined up. This was followed by a breakfast of pancakes with all the trimmings.
We also attended ‘open house' viewings, not really wanting to buy, but curious and interested to take a look, certainly something new for me.
In her own unique way she talked about books and introduced me to the joy of reading, starting with the Poldark series – 12 books.
As for music, I never heard her play, but knew she was an accomplished pianist, but only after a few years, through her unassuming comments I learned she was one of a few women entitled to attend university. She gave me many lessons on the piano, also covering theory, never pushing, but listening with suggestions to increase my limited knowledge.
Her love of keeping things always interested me, and something you thought would be long gone, appeared. We spent many hours examining her treasures – little vest worn by Tom, small sweater she made for Deborah, birthday card of a rabbit, plus paper sail boats by myself, also her jewelry, coins, dishes, silver and table ware.
Many, many hours were spent on her two books A Gopher Tale and The Letter Writer, both of which I know were started in Regina, Her interest and purpose never wavered. She had a great imagination, with outlines of stories of rabbits plus all the children of George III, and sure there were others.
Georgina you were a remarkable lady, with many stories to tell. Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your interesting and varied life.

Heart felt sympathy on the passing of Mrs. Young. I am a former piano student of hers from Regina, and her obituary certainly brought back fond memories of my youth attending piano lessons in her home, recitals at the public library, and music festivals. Thank you Mrs. Young for helping me cultivate a gift that I continue to share with my church community to this day. My own daughter has been inspired by my piano playing and now has her ARCT in piano. Prayers of thanksgiving to Mrs. Young and her family. God bless.
