Gerald “Jerry” Denton Udahl
On January 2nd, 2009, Gerald “Jerry” Denton Udahl passed away at the age of 81. Jerry will be lovingly remembered by wife Betty; children Brenda (Dave), Judi, Randy (Margaret); grandson Torrin; siblings Bob (Chris), Sharon, Marj (Mel) Sims; sister in law Donna; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Elda and Edwin; brother Elmer and brother in law Aubrey Doak. Jerry was born in Nipawin on December 29th, 1927. He met Betty at a dance in Moose Range and they were married in Aylsham in 1951. They lived in Aylsham, Smiley, Nokomis, Central Butte, and Moose Jaw, making many good friends along the way. Jerry was a dedicated employee of SaskPower for 32 years. When he retired, mandolin lessons, hail adjusting and his tree pruning business allowed him to continue to meet and talk with people, which was one of his greatest attributes. He also had an affection for animals and never met one he thought he couldn’t tame. Jerry made significant contributions to every community in which he lived. He was an active participant in Lions clubs, recreation organizations, and in the church. The family welcomes all who knew Jerry to join them in paying tribute to his life on Tuesday, January 6th, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. in Moose Jaw Funeral Home. Rev. Dave Moore will officiate. We wish to express our heartfelt thanks to the staff of Providence Place and Guardian Grove for the loving care they gave Jerry. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Jerry’s name to the Alzheimer Assoc. of Saskatchewan Inc., 301-2550 – 12th Ave., Regina, Sk, S4P 3X1 or Providence Place Foundation Inc., 100 – 2nd Ave. N.E., Moose Jaw, Sk, S6H 1B8.
