(Née: Podgornik)

June 8, 1946 – August 8, 2021


   It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Georgette Vigna of Coleman, AB on August 8, 2021.  She was 75 years of age.

   Georgette was a dynamic individual with many interests.  She could often be found enjoying the outdoors while gardening or going for rides in the backcountry.  In quieter moments, Georgette liked to curl up with a good book or create a variety of crafts.  Both her social and competitive sides were satisfied when she engaged in playing darts, cribbage and bingo.  More than anything, Georgette cherished time spent with her family and friends.  The love she had for them is eternal and she will live on in precious memories.

   Left to mourn her passing and celebrate her life are her children, Lynn (Marius) Mortensen of Okotoks, AB, Dean (Sylvia) Vigna of Brooks, AB and Brenda Vigna of Blairmore, AB; her grandchildren Crystal Heer, Cecil Mortensen, Jessica Heer, Joey Mortensen, Angel Woitte, Jamie Vigna, Brittany Vigna, Breanna Mortensen, Ashley Vigna and Jennelle Mortensen; her great-grandchildren, Amber, Aiden, Lucas James, Vienna, Izabelle, Tetra, James and Lucas; her brother, John Podgornik of Blairmore, AB; as well as her extended family and many friends.

   She was predeceased by her husband, Dominic Vigna; her parents, Thomas Podgornik and Louisa Podgornik (Née: Houze); her sons, Brian David Vigna and Wayne Brian Vigna; her granddaughter, Janessa Lynn George-Vigna; and her long-time companion, Cecil Oelke.
