GIBSON, Stella "Dolly" (nee Shonuck)
The Guest Book is expired.
1922 - 2013
Having just celebrated her 90th birthday in November, this spirited, devoted mother passed at home on January 22, 2013 in the presence of her adoring sons, Paul and George. She is now with her loving husband of 66 years, the late George Gibson, her late daughter Dianne and her caring son, the late Robert (Bob) Gibson. She will be sadly missed but forever remembered by her daughters-in- law, Louise and Marjorie Gibson, Kelly McGinley and Angie Butterwick-Gibson. Having been the youngest in her family, she was predeceased by her parents Toder and Maria and brothers Mike, George, Billy, Johnny and Steve and her sisters Katie, Doris and Polly. She was the proud "Nan" of David (Elena), Diana (Mitchell Hovey), Kevin (Christine), Ryan, Daniel and Thomas and the doting great-grandmother of Alex, Sabrina, Owen, Kyle and Charlotte. She will be deeply missed by her brother-in-law Don and sister- in-law Marion and her many nieces and nephews. This stylish and energetic woman surrounded herself with the finest of friends and will be fondly remembered by her former neighbours on Green Gables Lane. The family would like to thank Dr. Louise Coulombe, Omaira and all of the nurses and care givers who were so very kind to her. The family will receive relatives and friends at Pinecrest Visitation Centre (2500 Baseline Rd.) on Sunday, January 27th from 6-9 p.m. A Celebration of Dolly's life will be held in the Pinecrest Remembrance Chapel at 10 o'clock on Monday, January 28, 2013 to be followed by a reception. In memory of Dolly, donations to the Ottawa Hospital Heart Institute or the Ottawa Mission would be appreciated by the family. Online condolences can be made at www.colefuneralservices.com
