GIBSON, Evelyn (nee Brand) - June 29, 1934 - January 30, 2013 After my short battle with cancer, I thought you should know that I moved upstairs on the morning of January 30, 2013. I was surrounded by love during my last breath and went peacefully on to join those who went before me. I was the much loved daughter of the late Christina and Charles Brand from Glasgow, Scotland. I was predeceased by my husbands Reg Stone and Ron Cantwell. I was the sister of my late brother Charles Brand (Joanne). I was the mother to Julie Gauthier (Fraser) and Lloyd Stone (Debbie). I was Nana to my grandchildren Natasha Kovar (Rob), Richard Stone, Kayla Stone, Tyler Stone and Taylor Martin. I was great-gramma to Ethan Stone (Kayla). There will be no funeral service for me. A Memorial Mass will be held at St. Joseph's Catholic Church located at 172 Leslie St. in Toronto on Saturday, March 16, 2013 at 9 a.m. The Mass will be followed by tea, coffee and sandwiches at the Seniors Residence next door on Curzon Street. A special thank you to all the doctors, nurses and staff members of the Toronto Grace Hospital located at 650 Church Street for their kind and very caring treatment of me while on their Palliative Care floor throughout this journey. They made me comfortable and saw that I was never in pain or distress. There are no words to express my gratitude for their help and kindness. I would ask in lieu of flowers, that you please make a donation to the Toronto Grace Hospital in my name. It is a small hospital with a very big heart. I will see you all upstairs.
