Memorial – Gerri Seeley

Sadly, it is with a heavy heart, that we announce to the congregation that Gerri Seeley died early this morning.  She had been a patient at Toronto General Hospital for the past week or so.  Gerri was a long time member of Central and very much a part of our church her whole life.  We were blessed.

On behalf of the church, we extend our most sincere sympathies to Gerri’s husband Dennis, children Mary Lynn and Blair and their families.  There will be a visitation here at the church this FRIDAY, February 20th from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. with a “Celebration of Life” service to be held at the church on Saturday, April 11th at 2 p.m.  (Donations can be made for Post transplant lymphoma research, Cancer research or to the Kidney Foundation of Canada).
