We Remember

GIBSON, Patricia “Paddy”

March 17, 1943 — January 23, 2022

In loving memory of Paddy Gibson, we are saddened to announce her passing on January 23, 2022, she will live on in our hearts. She is survived by her son Darren (Jody); son-in-law Stacey; and grandchildren Jacob, Aiden, and Connor. Sadly, she was predeceased by her beloved husband Paul and daughter Tracy.

The youngest of seven siblings, Paddy was born in Alert Bay, BC (a village on Cormorant Island, near the town of Port McNeill on northeast Vancouver Island). However, she grew up in Vancouver, BC, where she met her husband Paul in high school. After marriage, Paul and Paddy settled in Fraser Lake, BC, and they began their family. After a few years of catering and running a bakery there, Paul moved the family to the Okanagan. Paddy and Paul owned and operated Lugi’s pub in the mission and enjoyed many fun memories with friends and family there.

Paddy had a love for sports that she shared with her children, and if the kids weren’t playing in a baseball tournament, she most likely was!

After Paul’s passing, Paddy continued to keep herself busy with an active social life: travelling, curling, golfing, and going to many bonspiels and golf tournaments. Another of Paddy’s joys were her grandchildren, and a bigger fan of them you could not find. She was a regular fixture at all their games and supported them in all they attempted.

No formal service will be held. Family and friends will honour her, each in their own way.
