Georgina (Jody) Lee Golik

June 19th, 1962 ~ August 17, 2014


It is with deepest regret and sadness that the family of Jody Golik must announce her passing.

After a yearlong battle with cancer in which she showed a strength and courage so strong it gave everyone around her the strength to cope and carry on.

Jody was a loving, caring mother to our two sons Kyle and Ryan. She was a loving daughter to George and Bobbi Bradley and a constant friend to her sisters Tracy and Carolin, both having spent countless hours helping care for Jody in her final weeks. To everyone that knew Jody knew an angel, always kind, caring and considerate, never having a negative word for anyone.

So on a Sunday afternoon at her favorite place on the couch I sat at her side, we held hands, she took her last breath, slowly closed her eyes and was finally at peace.

To me she was my wife of 32 years, but more than that she was my best friend.

Jody was a very special person and will be dearly missed by all.

Interment will be held at the Nelson Memorial Park Cemetery from 1:00pm – 2:00pm on Friday, August 29th, 2014.

A celebration of life will follow at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall Branch No.51, 402 Victoria Street, Nelson from 2:00pm – 4:00pm.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 565 West 10th Ave, Vancouver, V5Z 9Z9 or The Kootenay Lake Hospital, 3 View Street, Nelson, V1L 2V1
