Catherine Dawn Geldart
Catherine Dawn Geldart, known to many as "Normie", 66 years, of Petitcodiac, passed away at the Moncton Hospital on October 16, 2020. Normie grew up in Elgin, NB and was the daughter of the late Conrad and Vera (Mattinson) Geldart. She was predeceased by her loving partner, Tony Dwyer.
Normie graduated from the Saint John School of Nursing in 1973. During her career she worked as a nurse in Inuvik NWT, at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary, and at the Lethbridge Regional Hospital. The bulk of her career was at the Grace Maternity Hospital in Halifax. She was also a proud member of the EHS Lifeflight team in Halifax, NS.
After she retired, Normie and Tony moved to Petitcodiac, NB, where she was able to reconnect with old friends and make many new ones. Tony and Normie were avid supporters of local musicians and found their home within the local music scene.
Normie is survived by her son, Matthew Conrad Rockwell of Halifax, NS; brother, Dwight Geldart (Angela Comish) of Elgin NB; nephew, Lucas Conrad Geldart of Sussex, NB; and many close cousins.
A special thank you to those who provided care and comfort to Normie throughout her illness, especially her family physician, Dr. Ravneet Comstock.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a private Graveside Service will be held at the Maplewood Cemetery, Petitcodiac, NB. A Celebration of Normie’s life will be held at a later date. Arrangements in care of the Salisbury Funeral Home.
