Obituary of Geraldine Burk

Geraldine Peggy Burk (nee Tremblay) was born and raised in Conklin, Alberta to her parents Dumase and Mary Tremblay September 22nd, 1959.  Gerrie stayed in Conklin until she had her 2 wonderful children, Carmen and Louie Burk whom she loved and adored with all her heart. Gerrie was loved and adored by many including her 2 grandchildren Grace and Anthony Rafla, whom she was very proud of and loved dearly. Gerrie was the sister of Russell, Robbie, Ernie, Violet, Delores, Agnes, Shirley, and Sherry.


Gerrie was a very caring and helpful lady.  She would give the shirt off her back if she had to, she had a very big and kind heart!  Gerrie was given a nickname (Maskwa) which means Bear in our Cree language, and it sure came out when she was upset!  Especially when it came to family.


Gerrie left Conklin to find a new life which took her to Ontario.  In her final days she was cared for at Sprucedale Care Centre in Strathroy.  This is where I (Agnes) came to be with her in her final days of passing on October 8th, 2023.


I (Agnes) was Gerrie’s go to sister.  She would call me every day, sometimes 3 to 4 times a day, but I didn’t mind at all.  I’m sure going to miss those calls.  My dear sister, fly high with the angels and creator.  Rest easy, love and miss you dearly.
