GILBERT, Marion Louis

It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Marion Gilbert. She is survived by her loving husband, Charles Joseph (Joe) Gilbert, her children Jan Morris (Brian), Joanne Husband (Kevin), Barb Bryant (Dave) and Barry Gilbert. Marion is also survived by her brother Roy James. Marion was the best grandma to their 10 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. She will also be missed by her loving extended family and many friends. She was pre-deceased by her parents, Dave and Margaret James, and sons, Doug and Blair. Marion and Joe have been married for 60 wonderful years making many memories together, riding horses, travelling, holidaying with friends, and mostly working hand in hand all through their lives. She loved sewing, crocheting, baking bread, her lambs and never had a bad word to say about anyone. She was a good worker for the 4-H club and also the BCRCA. She set a good example of how to be a kind person and we are all much better to have had her in our lives. We will be having a Celebration of Life on Tuesday, July 9th from 1:30-3:30pm at the Langley Senior Society, 20605-51B Avenue, Langley.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimer's Society of BC (300-828 West 8th Ave, Vancouver BC) or to the Variety Club of BC (604-320-0505) which Marion and Joe have always supported and is close to their hearts.
