Obituary for Sarah Gibson (Kent)
Following a lengthy battle with ALS, Sarah was eager to meet her Saviour. She passed peacefully into glory at the Sault Area Hospital surrounded by her children and caring medical staff. Sarah was the devoted wife of the late William Russell “Pete” Gibson, the mother of Elizabeth Jayne Jones (Mark), William Bradford (Katy), Kent Robert John (Margo). Her grandchildren were her pride and joy: Ian Jones, Colin Jones, Marion Gibson, Sedona Jones, Kayla Gibson, Sonya Jones, Allison Gibson, Neil Jones and Nadia Jones. Sarah’s siblings were absolutely crucial in getting her through this illness: Joan Hill (Bert), the late Bill Kent (Diana), Richard Kent (Aleen), Robert Kent (Brenda), Graham Kent (Sherri), Jayne Harris (John Vasconcelos) and John Kent (Barbara). Sarah’s in-laws include: Helen McEwen, Robert Gibson and Carmen Smith, predeceased by David Gibson, Winnifred and Victor Wilson, Hilda and Rod Hannah, Gladys and El Dalgleish, Joyce Gibson, Robert McEwen, Gerrie Gibson, Betty and Robert Cooper, Jackie Smith. Sarah was predeceased by her parents Jack Kent, Kay Kent Roberts and her step-father Ed Roberts. She will be sadly missed by many friends in and around Mississippi Station. Many thanks to all the wonderful staff of the SAH intensive care unit and the complex care unit. Sarah appreciated the personal touch that medical personnel, nurses, PSWs, cleaners, respiratory therapists, physiotherapists, dietary staff and the activity coordinator provided; making her lengthy stay at the hospital as pleasant as possible. At Sarah’s request a private celebration will be held this spring at a family camp on St. Joseph Island. Interment will take place at Robertsville Cemetery in the summer. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made in Sarah’s honour to Mississippi Free Methodist Church or Northern Lights Baptist Church, Iroquois Falls.
