April 16, 1923 – October 7, 2019
On Monday October 7 2019, Georgina Carmella Simpson (nee Cini) passed away quietly in her sleep at her residence at Sunrise of Aurora at the age of 96 years.
Georgina was born April 16, 1923 in Toronto to Nina and George Cini. She was preceded in death by her husband of 27 years, Robert Alexander. She had one son, George Morgan, married to Diane Susan of Aurora. She was the beloved Nana to grandsons James Robert of Brampton and Taylor Daniel of Aurora.
She lived and worked in the Toronto area before meeting her husband Robert while working together at Canada Packers. They were married and made their home in Brampton Ontario. Georgina was an avid sports fan, loving the Leafs, Blue Jays and the Argos. She was a long time member of golf clubs in the Georgetown area and continued to play into her mid eighties. Georgina was an awesome cook, enjoyed fine things and was always dressed very fashionably. Her travels took her across North America to visit friends and family and beyond to exotic locations in the Caribbean, Greece, Australia and China. She was an active member of the church, most recently being a parishioner at Our Lady of Grace in Aurora. Georgina was known for her charitable work with the Heart & Stroke Foundation, Canadian Cancer Society, helped at blood donor clinics, local hospitals on the women's auxiliary and sponsored several foster children. She was a very caring and giving soul.
She is survived by her sisters Carmella Vella and Theresa Egerton both of Mississauga. Georgina was a loving aunt to several nieces and nephews as well as many grand and great nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by sisters Josephine, Grace and Rita from the Toronto area. "Auntie Jean" will be sorely missed by the family.
Memorial gifts can be made to the Alzheimer Society of Canada or the Heart & Stroke Foundation.

Dear Auntie Jean,
Visiting you and Uncle Bob when I was young is one of my fondest memories. I will never forget your welcoming smile, infectious laugh, great sense of style, and how you made me feel welcome.
The way you faced life with courage and conviction after you lost your dear husband, Bob, your indelible spirit, and your many adventures on and off the golf course inspired me to live beyond the bounds of convention into to the expanse of what was possible.
Thank you for being a wonderful Aunt, and a brilliant light to all those you touched. May you dance with Uncle Bob, Aunties Grace & Rita, Nana, Tony and Tyler.
I will miss you.

I remember fondly how you took care of me when I was very young and bought me clothes for church. Laterly I will always remember the trips we took together and all the laughs we had. You and Gord had some good laughs together when you watched the sports and when you lived close you came for supper and invited us to supper. You always set things up beautifully. My drive to see you was always worth while as it was nice to know you were still with us.
I will miss you very much Jean but I know that you are in good company with Grace, Rita and Mom & Dad. Love you very much.
Your sister Theresa
