Florence Gertrude "Gertie" Sargent


Florence Gertrude "Gertie" Sargent

Gertie Sargent, 78, of Germantown, passed away on August 13th, 2019 at her home. 

Gertie was born on July 21st, 1941, the daughter of the late Garnet Sheffar and Orpah (Stuart) Sheffar- Ledger.
Gertie worked with General Motors for 16 years in Oshawa, Ontario and then returned to Albert County to raise her family.  Her main priority was her girls and her grandson, they were her world.  She never missed watching Cole play hockey and was always there for him.   Gertie was known for her quick wit and great sense of humour.  She loved the camp and has made many memories over the years and had lots of laughs and adventures with her family and friends.  She enjoyed bingo and was an avid Toronto Maple Leafs fan.    She was definitely one of a kind and her legacy of love and laughter will live on forever.  Gertie felt blessed to have her girls there for her whenever she needed anything, the support and care they gave her while she was struggling with her health issues was outstanding.  She always had drives to her many appointments and was included in all the daily outings.  Gertie would want everyone to think of a funny story and have a good laugh as you remember all the fun times you shared. We are sure she is having a great reunion with her loved ones that have gone before her and she is smiling down on us now.  "Until we meet again"
She will be deeply missed by her treasured daughters Sherry Wright (Brian Beck) of Germantown and Denise Priest (Todd Milburn) of Germantown; her cherished grandson, Cole Wright; brother, Carvel Sheffar (Joan) of Germantown; sisters-in-law, Dorothy Shaffer of Shenstone,  Imelda Shaffer of Riverview,  Bernice Walburne (Gerald), Jean Donahue (Patrick), Elsie Warwick (George) and Janette Adams (Dennis) all of Newfoundland.  She will also be missed by her nieces and nephews and by many friends. 
Besides her parents she was predeceased by her step-father, Arthur Ledger; her husband, Pat Sargent; son-in-law, Douglas Wright;  brothers, Ronnie, George, Reggie, Alphonse, Wallace, Fletcher and Floyd; sister, Irene; brother-in-law, Frank Sargent; sister-in-law, Stella Heart.
