    With deep sadness we announce the passing of Wendy Kruyssen, CPA.

    Wendy was a long-time member of the ECPAC, and its predecessor. Not only was she an active member, but also a member of the ECPAC's Board of Directors for several years.

    Wendy dedicated untold hours volunteering personally and professionally. For over 25 years she was active with Scouts Canada in many roles, from the community group leader to Council positions coordinating fundraising and activities throughout southern Alberta.

    She spent a great deal of time volunteering at the elementary school both her sons attended, both in and outside of the classroom. Ranging from field trips to classroom support, she was also a key organizer of a program where students were able to open their first bank account and learn the basics of money management and saving.

    She coordinated the Bay Street Tycoons, introducing youth to the stock market and the economy. In recent years she volunteered with Field of Crosses, ensuring present and future generations would always remember the thousands of men and women who gave their tomorrows for our today.

    We wish to announce the sudden death of Gerry on Thursday, April 15, 2021. He left us after bravely coping with the severe effects of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis for 13 years.

    He was born June 13, 1940 in Calgary and lived most of his life in the City that he loved. Gerald was the third child of Victoria and Joseph. He is survived by his wife Laurie (Durand). They were married August 24, 1963.

    Gerry graduated from St. Mary's Boys School in 1958 and joined the Accounting firm of Munn, Richards, Yeoman & Co. where he articled for 5 years and became a Chartered Accountant. Gerry's places of employment as Controller included The University of Calgary, several Broadcasting Stations, and Automotive Dealerships in Calgary and Vancouver.

    He was happiest as an Entrepreneurial CA (CPA) and enjoyed his clients of which many became close friends. Gerry was always willing to support people in their business ventures and helped many through difficult times.

    Gerry was proud to be a part of bringing Calgary Crime Stoppers to the City, the first chapter in Canada. Being a native Calgarian, he was a huge fan of The Calgary Stampeders and The Calgary Flames.

    There are no services. Photos, memories and condolences may be shared with Gerry's family through www.evanjstrong.com. A Celebration for Gerry's life will be held later.
