GIBSON, Evelyn (née Augustine) 

It is with heavy hearts and eternal love that the family announces Evelyn’s peaceful passing surrounded by her loving family in Chelmsford, on Saturday, September 23, 2023, at the age of 93 years.  

Evelyn is reunited with the love of her life, best friend, and dear husband, late William ‘‘Bob’’ Gibson on what would be their 75th year of matrimony.

Evelyn will be forever missed by her three daughters Wendy Johnston (late Charles), Janet Duffy (David) and Paula Gibson. 

Her four grandchildren, Caley, Darcy, David, and Dawn will always know the love and devotion Grama had for them.

Her Great-grandchildren Samantha, Madison, Alexander, Logan, Soloman, Ezra, Abraham, Suzanna, Job and Ruth; and Great-great-grandchildren, Everlee and Enzlee will remember Gran’s kind smile and loving touch. 

Evelyn was the beloved daughter of the late Andrew and late Freda (née Herschmiller) Augustine of Melville Saskatchewan and dear sister of Hilda and Wilfred, predeceased by Dorothy, Harold, Emma and Rita.
