Giorgina (Gina) was a brave woman who left everything behind in Malta after moving to Canada in 1965 with her family. She joined her husband George in hopes of finding opportunities they might not have had back home. They made a life together here, and even when the children grew and scattered, Gina remained the central figure in the lives of her extended family. She welcomed new additions to the family with open arms. She shared recipes, her faith, her sense of humour, and her belief in the good of others. And yes, sometimes her stubbornness! Yet through it all, above all, she shared her love of family, and will be greatly missed.
