Mary Pearl Gibbon
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Mary Pearl Gibbon announces her passing on Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at the Oromocto Public Hospital.
Born February 9, 1942 in Saint John, NB, she was the daughter of the late Douglas and Mary (Forgey) Cormier and the loving wife of the late Leonard Addison Gibbon.
Mary was well known in the community as "Mama G". She was feisty and a little spitfire. She had the best sense of humour and loved to make everyone laugh. Mary was always acting a fool and loved life. Everyone loved her for it.
Mary loved spending time with her family and seeing her friends. Special thanks go out to Mum’s favorite nurse Rosanne Thomson. Mom loved her "Rosie".
Mary is survived by her three children, Douglas and his wife Lori Ramsay, Lisa and her husband Raymond Goodine, and Jeff and his wife Anita Allinson-Gibbon. She adored her grandchildren Brett Smith (Jodi Coy), Sierra Smith, Ty Gibbon, Jade Gibbon and great grandson Zane. Mary also loved her step-grandchildren Ashley and Robyn Carr, and Billy and Raelene Goodine; her sisters Shirley Hansen, Janet McMillan and Bonnie Snodgrass.
In addition to her parents and husband, she was predeceased by siblings Carol Danells and Douglas Cormier.
There will be a gathering for friends and family at Shirley and Ralph Hansen’s home, on 3 Dobson Lane, Rothesay, NB on Saturday, April 14 from 1-4 pm. Family and friends are also invited to the Upper Gagetown Lions Club to share stories of Mary on Sunday April 15 from 1-4 pm. Donations in Mary’s memory can be made to the New Brunswick Lung Association.
