Georgina died peacefully at home in Victoria, BC on November 27, 2022. Georgina and her husband Irwin have been long-time supporters of TRAS.
Georgina was enthusiastically involved in the Victoria branch of TRAS from the early days in the 1960s until they finally and sadly closed their branch in 2015. During those 50 years that little branch imported lovely Tibetan rugs and sold them at every possible kind of venue – they put on all sorts of other events and sales until, as Georgina said, they were all just too old to be lugging carpets all over the place! The many thousands of dollars they raised went to support the Tibetan Settlement in Mundgod, south India, in particular the hospital which had been set up there by Canadian Judy Tethong and the Old People’s Home.
Georgina was a wonderful friend to the Tibetans.
