We are sad to announce the passing of our mother and grandmother, Mabel Johanna Gerding (Monner, Nee: Peterson), on Good Friday, April 14, 2017, at the age of 94 years (or as she would say “a hell of an age”.

She lived a full life, filled with laughter, stubbornness and generosity. Never one to hold back, she always spoke her mind regardless of the results, but never complained. Even to the end, always stating “what’s there to complain about, I’ve got a place to park my ass, a window to look at and they aren’t going to kick me out!”

Survived by daughter Reta (Dale) Pickering, son-in-law Tim Burk, granddaughter Candice Moore and grandson Scott Pickering. She was predeceased by her husband Wayne Monner, toddler son Wayne and daughter Gwen Burk.

Thank you to the wonderful staff of Vulcan Extendicare where she has resided for the past 4 and a half years for the care and love they have shown her.

No service will be held, however, inurnment of her ashes at O’Perfect Peace Cemetery, Milo, Alberta will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Vulcan Extendicare Association, Box 810, Vulcan, AB T0L 2B0.

Arrangements in care of Vulcan Funeral Home.
