Obituary of Georgina McKelvie

Hazel Georgina McKelvie (nee Duncan)

1939 - 2021


Born in Proton Township, Georgina was the 11th of 12 children to George and Hazel Duncan.  It was in Dundalk where she was raised and met her husband of 62 years, Ray McKelvie.  Ray and Georgina moved to Owen Sound in 1958 where they built a successful life together.  Georgina is sorely missed by son Scott (Lori) of Milton and daughter Susan (Terry) of St. Catharines.  She was the proud grandmother of Greg (Kelly), Kaitlin (Mike), Jennifer, Mark and Tamara, as well as her new great-grandson Benjamin.  She was loved by her sisters Hazel and Peg and brother Howard (Sylvia), as well as her many nieces and nephews. Georgina was predeceased by her brothers Jack, Doug, Bert, Donald, Alec, Russel, Kenneth and George.  Her friends are too numerous to list but will miss her kindness, generosity and hospitality.  Georgina was always busy with her many activities and travels.  She was a member of the Grey Granite Curling Club, the Duplicate Bridge Club as well as a member of “The Birthday Girls”.  Georgina could also be seen at every home game of the Owen Sound Attack.
