Obituary

Mrs. Gertrude Bohan died at the age of 85. Mourning her loss and celebrating her life, are her seven children: Paddy (Megan), Michael, Maureen (Tim) Toth, Sean, Kevin (Tanys), Tiernan (Helen), and Seamus (Shelley); 15 grandchildren, Brendan, Kaitlan, Meghan, Aidan, Tara, Erin, Conal, Ashley, Kayleigh, Reilly, Danielle, Liam, Lauren, Ella, and Moira; her sister Anne Otterson of Toronto; numerous family and friends.

She was predeceased by her husband Joseph Bohan; parents Margaret and Edward Otterson; sister Consuella Ross, and brother Monsignor Fee Otterson.

Gertrude taught mostly English at junior and senior high levels with the Edmonton Catholic School Board for over 25 years. Her love of children extended from her own children to her classroom children. Gertrude adapted her love of English and language into a mild obsession with cross-word puzzles, which she completed in pen, and into becoming an almost unbeatable Scrabble player. Gertrude was also an avid reader and patronized live theatre for many years.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Arthritis Society, 10109 - 106 St NW, Edmonton, AB, T5J 3L7 or to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 10985 - 124 St. NW, Edmonton, AB, T5M 0H9.

Prayers will be held at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, 9830 - 148 Street, Edmonton on Thursday, September 18, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. Reverend Paul Kavanagh will celebrate a Mass of Christian Burial on Friday, September 19, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. at St. John the Evangelist. Interment at Holy Cross Cemetery, 14611 Mark Messier Trail, Edmonton.

The family thanks the Emergency Service Team, Fire and Rescue, the staff at the U of A Hospital Emergency Department, the 5th Floor Cardiology Unit, and Southwest Homecare for the care and compassion shown to the family and to Mom.

In Loving Memory of
Gertrude Catherine Bohan
(Maiden: Otterson)
