GIBSON, Gilda A. – The death of Gilda A. Gibson occurred at Lincourt Manor, St. Stephen, N.B., on Wednesday, November 23, 2022. She was the daughter of the late Annie (Cook) Greenlaw Weatherby and stepdaughter of Herbert Weatherby.
In addition to her husband Wayne, of 57 years, and her beloved cats Holly and Scooby, she will be missed by her brother Roy, six nieces, nephews and cousins.
Gilda was predeceased by her parents, brother Peter and sister-in-law Marilyn Greenlaw.
Gilda worked at the Dominion Store, then became co-manager of Hills Limited and in later years prepared income taxes.
Gilda was an avid reader and especially enjoyed the history of the Royal Family. She had a flair for decorating, especially at Christmas time where she was known for her beautiful Christmas trees. She enjoyed crafts, crocheting and rug hooking where she strived for perfection.
Gilda was a giving person and generous with her time. For 12 years she voluntarily managed the gift shop of the Charlotte County Hospital. This involved many hours of purchasing and displaying goods. Gilda also volunteered almost daily for 20 years at the local SPCA. She was responsible for the intake and care of kittens; a job she enjoyed because of her love of cats.
In keeping with Gilda’s wishes there will be no funeral service or visitation held. Interment at St. Stephen Rural Cemetery, St. Stephen, N.B.
For those who wish, donations to the SPCA, Lincourt Manor or a charity of one’s choice would be appreciated. Condolences may be sent to the family online at www.mehanfuneralhome.ca
The family appreciates the care Gilda was shown by the staff of Lincourt Manor. Their kindness will not be forgotten.
