June 16, 2024 – Calgary, Alberta


Georgina Molly-Sheila Locken (nee Reeve), beloved wife of John Locken, of Calgary, AB, passed away on Sunday, June 16, 2024, at the age of 86 years.


Georgina was born in Southampton, England, on August 16, 1937, to parents Percy Reeve and May Primrose (nee Morgan) Reeve.


Her education finished in England, and she accompanied her parents and younger brother to Canada in 1953. They arrived in Montreal, QC, having travelled on a passenger liner from Liverpool. From there she spent her early life in Quebec and Ontario before moving to Alberta.


She enjoyed a good life with her husband, John T. Locken, and their family of cats they raised for twenty-seven plus years. Her greatest hobby was her knitting, of which many sweaters are now being worn by children in Canada.


May she rest in peace, remembered by all.


Besides her loving husband, Georgina is survived by her one son and his partner, one daughter and son-in-law, daughter-in-law and her husband, two grandchildren and three stepchildren.


Georgina was predeceased by her sons, Ian Waters and Charles Illniki, sister Edwina May Reeve, niece Sofe Reeve, and granddaughter Allison Hicki.
