Kathleen Valerie Gibbons succumbed to a long illness on January 11, 2019. She was most proud of being a graduate of the Florence Nightingale School of Nursing at St. Thomas’ Hospital and The Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, London where she received the prize in Nursing. She was a supportive and devoted wife to Ian, sister to Elizabeth, mother to Fiona, grandmother to Emmeline Lily, and mother-in-law to Jim. She cherished her garden, and her loving touch produced beautiful flowers. She also mothered many dogs whom she held dear and spoiled endlessly: Jasper, Tessa, Tenby, Emma and Watson. She always cared for others before herself.
