Jessie Doris (Coy) Briggs
Jessie Doris (Coy) Briggs passed away peacefully in Burton, NB, on June 15, 2017. Born April 27, 1924 in Upper Gagetown, NB, she was the daughter of the late Charles L Coy and Verda Allen.
Jessie is survived by her son, Peter (Brenda); daughter, Judy (Mel Glustien); sisters, Joyce and Annette; brothers, Richard and Michael; grandchildren, Christopher, Jennifer, Michael, and Nicolas; great–grandchildren, Adria, Casey, Cole, Jesse, Lauren, and Tristan. Jessie will also be missed by many nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, Jessie was predeceased by her husband of 59 years, Russell Briggs and by four brothers and sisters.
Jessie and Russell worked side by side in their business for many years, and in Retirement they would rescue flowers from abandoned farm yards. Jessie had a great interest in genealogy and for many years served as a family and community historian. Reading was Jessie’s most loved past time, and it extended into researching out interesting epitaphs in the country cemeteries.
Many thanks to Rhonda, John, and the wonderful caring staff and residents of Your at Home Retreat where Jessie lived for the past eight years. A special thanks also to Wendy her Extra Mural Nurse.
A private family service has been held. If you wish to remember Jessie, please plant a flower in her memory.
