Georgina Coates, born on September 24th 1925 in Chase BC, a long-time resident of Sicamous since 1968, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on October 23rd at the age of 88 years.
Dodie graduated Nursing School in 1947 which allowed her to serve one of her lifelong passions, helping those in need, until her retirement in 1987
A caring mother and world class grandmother and loyal friend, she will be lovingly remembered by her 6 children Lynn(Angus), Vicki(Christian), Jill(Neil), Janice(Jack), Robert(Mya) and Sherry(Jas), 8 grandchildren Trevor, Tyler, Cristian, Lara, Michele, Dillon, Robert and Sean, and 8 great-grandchildren, as a woman so tough she once drove herself to the hospital, in labour to give birth, with her hand slammed in the car door, thinking nothing of it. With a sparkling smile that will never be forgotten it was often said that Dodie was the only family member of which a bad picture does not exist.
As per her request, no formal service will be held, with a family remembrance scheduled for summer 2014
