Mildred (Gibbs) Bray passed peacefully at The Moncton Hospital June 19, at the age of 84.  She was born on September 11, 1937 and was the daughter of Wright and Emelda Gibbs.  

Mildred was born and brought up in Baie Ste. Anne, NB, attended Teachers College, and taught school for a few years until she met and married Paul in 1960. They raised their children on Bissett Ave. in Moncton, in a cozy, loving home. When Paul retired, they built a cottage in Baie Ste. Anne, where they spent 25 summers gardening, spending time with family and eating lobster. They eventually moved to Buckingham Place in Riverview, where Mildred enjoyed playing Bridge, line dancing with the girls, the annual Christmas decorating group and socializing at the weekly TGIF.  

In her younger years, Mildred volunteered for the Canadian Cancer Society, Meals on Wheels, was active in the CWL and taught catechism for many years.  She was a member of the Beausejour Curling Club, the SERF Retired Teachers Association and St Bernard’s Roman Catholic Church. She had many lifelong friends and made new ones everywhere she went. She was a proud French Acadian, loved a party and an old fashioned singsong.  

She is survived by Paul, her loving husband of 62 years, her children Frank of Oakville, ON, Germaine (Jon Burns) of Brighton, ON, and Cecile (Mike Pettigrew) of Dieppe, NB, as well as her sisters Phyllis (Arsene Turbide), Dorita (Bill Rushworth) and Astrid (late Ken Wong), and her grandchildren Stephanie, Blake, Kent, Paul and Ian. She will also be missed by her many nieces and nephews, especially Marie Savoie Martin and Louise Doucet, who were like her sisters, as well as sisters in law Katherine Stoddard, Doreen Gibbs and Francoise Viger Gibbs.  Along with her parents, she was predeceased by her sisters Lorraine (Derick Savoie) and Julienne Hatcher and her brothers Walter (Rita), Fernand, Lionel and Willie Gibbs.  

A funeral mass will be held at St Bernard’s Roman Catholic Church on Thursday September 1, 2022 at 11:00am. Arrangements are entrusted to Tuttle Brothers Riverview Funeral Home 214 Pine Glen Rd., Riverview, NB. (506) 857-9544.  

The family would like to thank Dr. Thibeau and Dr Hachey for their expert care throughout her illness, and the team of doctors and nurses on the 4600 wing and the palliative care unit of The Moncton Hospital, who compassionately cared for her in her final days.  

In lieu of flowers, donations in Mildred’s memory to The Friends of The Moncton Hospital or an organization of the donor’s choice would be appreciated.
