GELLER, Lucetta Grace (nee Jennings)
It is with great sadness that the family of Lucetta Grace Geller (nee Jennings) announces her passing on July 6, 2022. Lucetta died, as she lived – on her own terms, and with grace and dignity. Lucetta will be lovingly and forever remembered by her beloved husband of 40 years, Lawrence, and by her siblings; Christine Hargan (Brian); Tom Jennings (Maura); Hillary Jennings (the late John Jennings); Gordon Jennings; and Geraldine McSporran (Douglas McSporran). Also, by sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Dana Lampe (Jonathan), Jan Babins (Gerry) and Harold Geller (Susan Tatryn), and by her numerous nieces and nephews, many dear friends, and family members. Lucetta was the loving and devoted daughter, and daughter-in-law, of the late Grace and Thomas Jennings of Jordanstown, Northern Ireland, where she grew up and the late Jack and Sybil Geller.
With a background in art and ecclesiastical embroidery Lucetta made her living as a seamstress when she first emigrated to Canada and had an enduring passion, and respect, for fashion, fabrics, and a straight, well sewn, seam. Her collecting was often, although not always, in some way related to fashion and fabrics.
As a young woman Lucetta worked to try to end sectarianism at home in Ireland, and for the remainder of her life was a champion of, and friend to, anyone who needed help in any way.
Lucetta and Lawrence shared a passion for life – for walking the streets of cities, towns and villages, collecting, travel, skiing, bicycling, friends and family – and pursued it all with vigour until recently.
A private funeral has been held.
