Bertha Bott
(March 3, 1905 - May 29, 2001)
George Bott (December 20, 1907 - October 12, 2004)

George and Bertha Bott are my grandparents.

George Jeavons Bott was born December 20, 1907 in England (although, as he likes to tell the story, he was conceived in Winnipeg, Manitoba).

In 1929, George picked up what few belongings he had and came to Canada. It was in Rosemount, Quebec (near Montreal) that he met Bertha Woolgar while on the way to the circus.

Wanting to have his picture taken with this beautiful young woman, George came out with his best line, "Vous voulez poser avec moi?"

Not speaking a word of French, Bertha replied, "I'm not French!!"

And so their courtship began. Once George met Bertha's mother, he knew he was a "dead duck", as he likes to put it.

On October 5, 1929, George and Bertha married and 9 months (and 10 minutes) later, George Jr. was born.

George and Bertha would go on to have two more children, Kingsley and Edward (plus a few dogs along the way: Shadow, Peter and Sandy among others).
