1 November , 1939 – 28 December , 2018
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our sister and aunt, May Gee on Friday, December 28, 2018 at the age of 79.
May was born on November 1, 1939 in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. When the family moved to Calgary, she attended Langevin Junior High and Crescent Heights High School. May was employed at Canadian Freightways for many years and eventually went to work in the resources industry, ending her career at Pembina Pipeline Corporation. She was an active member of the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority for many years. May loved to sew and read. She made many pieces of clothing for herself and family members. She also made many stuffed toys and keepsakes for her nieces and nephews.
May is survived by her brother Wing (Barbara) Gee; sister Marie Gee; nieces Sherry Mosmann, Shannon (Kenneth) Richmond and Angela (Domenic) Colabella; nephews Michael (Kimberley) Gee and David (Marija) Chow; as well as seven grand nieces and nephews. May was predeceased by her loving mother, Ethel Gee and brothers, Gene Chow and Hank Gee.
The family would like to thank the Staff at Prince of Peace Manor for their care and friendship during the past four years.
At May's request, there will be no funeral service. If so desired, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Alzheimer Society of Calgary, 800 - 7015 Macleod Trail SW, Calgary, AB T2H 2K6.

I was saddened to learn that my Milo School friend, May, had passed away. As teens, growing up in Milo, we spent many good times together. She was a gem. Sincere sympathy to her surviving family. Am certain you will all miss her; but hope the many happy memories will give you peace.

I am saddened to hear of May's passing. I worked with May for her full career at Pembina Pipeline Corporation. She was a wonderful woman with a bright smile, and was always willing, if I needed some help. She worked in Office Administration, and later in the Construction department. She was a proud volunteer with "The Outfit" during the 1988 Winter Olympics. My deepest sympathies go out to May's family and friends.

My condolences to the family in the loss of May. May lived across the hall from my Mom (Edna) at the Col. Belcher. I always especially appreciated May's kindness to my Mom. I often stopped in to see May and was always made to feel so welcome. She was a real trooper! Lee Hunt

Wing, Marie, and families,
My sincere sympathy to you all on your loss of May. I have such fond memories of our friendship when we lived in Milo. I still have a picture of the four of us (May and Marie and Kathleen and me) posing on the back doorstep of the Beechman home at Milo.
May your memories bring you comfort.

I was saddened to hear this news. I worked alongside May at Pembina for a number of years up to the company's disposition in 1998. I was in the Land Department and so I often had occasion to work and talk with May. She was a lovely woman with a wonderfully sunny disposition. She was a pleasure to know and a pleasure to work with. You will miss her greatly I am sure.

To all of May’s family, please know that there are many hearts with you at this time.
Over the years May was a most welcomed guest in our home. We had the privilege of getting to know May through our cousin Diane. Diane’s visits to Calgary were special occasions and even more so because May was a wonderful presence during these visits.
It didn’t take long to become fond of May as she was a very special individual.
I remember her being a gentle and kind person. She was easy to converse with as her knowledge of subjects was extensive. I admired her for her ability to face challenges without complaing. Mostly I will remember her kind and caring nature and loyalty and love of family and friends. I feel fortunate that I was given the gift of knowing May. Her memory will be cherished by the Fisher family.
