GEORGETTE (GEO) DRAGAN
December 16, 1941 - January 9, 2020
Born in Montreal, Geo spent much of her life in Winnipeg, then retired to Vancouver Island, BC, in 1998. Worshipped by her husband Jerry, cherished by her loving blended family, (Jack, Kevin, Shawn, Duane, and Rhonda), and (Laurie, Colleen, Kevin and Kori), Geo was adored by her 12 grandchildren. She also had 14 great-grandchildren.
Travelling, anywhere at any time, was a passion of hers, as was daily walking. She enjoyed home decorating, but cooking - not so much. She was an avid camper, novice golfer, volunteer at the hospital, and a fitness centre attendee. Equally pleasurable for her was her participation in the courses, clubs and activities of Elder College and the Probus Club. Throughout, she was guided by the teachings of her parents and St. Mary's Academy.
Geo was a truly remarkable "lady". She was recognized as a very competent professional and a highly valued colleague. Her positive outlook, warmth, caring nature, and excellent interpersonal skills readily drew people to her side. She was organized and efficient, yet sensitive and respectful of the needs of others. It was then not surprising that she was very successful in a career that required a high degree of tact, sensitivity, sound judgement, and high personal standards. All of these were hallmarks of hers.
She enjoyed and served with distinction for many years as an Administrative Assistant (clerical), within the Manitoba Civil Service. In her career, at various times, she reported directly to a Premier of the province, as well as to a Minister of the Crown, and Program Directors.
Her many attributes, plus being bilingual, served her well in both her career and social life. Friends mattered a great deal to her, and, she was quietly proud of the achievements of all her family, yet downplayed her own.
Flowers gratefully declined. Support to the local Diabetes association in your community would be appreciated.
Special thanks for the compassionate care of Dr. J. Cortez, Dr. S. Schovenek, Dr. S. Matous; OT L. Steed; and the nursing and support staff of 3A and 3C.
Cremation and no formal service were her wishes.
Note to the angels:
Get ready to be reorganized!

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
Thoughts go out to Jerry and the Feeley boys (Jack, Shawn, Duane, Kevin) whom I've known since God was a child. Slightly shocked to read about Geo's passing, and know how everyone in her world will miss her. I spent many happy hours with her both at Hodgson and in Winnipeg, and remember her kindness always. Hugs all around. - Posted by: Colleen Armstrong (Old Friend) on: Jan 26, 2020
My sympathies to Jerry and family. Geo was my cousin and while we haven't seen each other for quite a number of years I remember her vivacious personality so well! Geo always found time to keep in touch with my Dad (her uncle) and her aunts Sister Ida Marie and Elodie. Even after she moved to the Island she and Jerry always made an effort to visit my Dad and myself. Dad loved these visits so much, as did I. She will truly be missed.
