Genevieve Jessie Matheson May 6,1923 - June 25,2017

Mom passed away peacefully on June 25, the end of a long life lived to its fullest.

She was predeceased by her husband Alexander (Brud) Matheson.

She is survived by her sons Rod (Alyson), John (Joanne), and daughter Jean(Gord), grandchildren Stephanie, Andrew, Jennifer, Lesley , Kendrick, Mackenzie and great-granddaughter Elle.

She was the embodiment of one of her favorite mottos -

"never a dull moment".

She belonged to numerous organizations throughout her life, most notably the New Westminster YM/YWCA (President 1976-77), the American Quarter Horse Association (retired Director Emeritus 1994), Langley Home Support Service Society, and the Maple Beach Property Owners Association.

She was one of life's true characters. She was definitely remembered by whoever she met, wherever she went. She loved her family, loved life, and wasn't afraid to follow her passions. We will miss her greatly.

A Celebration of Genevieve's life will be held at a later date.
