Marion Lucille Galbraith
Heaven gained a beautiful angel on Tuesday, November 20, 2018 with the
passing of Marion Lucille Galbraith of Upper Salmon Creek NB at
Shannex Thomas Hall, Fredericton, NB.
Born in Midlands, NB on March 8, 1930 she was the daughter of the late
Ernest and Violet (Drost) Foss.
Marion loved her family and always had unconditional love and support
which she showed over the years especially after she was widowed at
the age of 43 left to raise her family on her own with six of her
eleven children still in school from grades five to twelve. To say
she was a hard worker would be an understatement and she installed her
work ethic in all of her family.
Mom certainly was not a selfish person who wanted for nothing but gave
everything to her family and will forever be the glue that holds them
together. Her many years of beautiful handiwork will be treasured by
her family for years to come and keep her memory alive. Mom was
delighted to have a great granddaughter named after her, Maev Marion
which she affectionately called « her little M & M ».
« Nannie Gitterbug » thoroughly loved all her grandchildren
and their visits brought her great joy and always put a smile on her
Survived by sons, Bernard “Jackie” (Anne), Ernie (Doris)
and Kevin; daughters, Carol (Burns), Sheila (Van), Wanda (Ernie),
Violet (George), Angila (John) and Ivy (Billy) and daughter in law
Susan; 17 grandchildren, 26 great grandchildren; 2 great great
grandchildren; brother, Roger Foss; sister Esther Kostick; many
nieces, nephews and cousins.
In addition to her parents, Marion was predeceased by husband, John
Galbraith in 1973; sons, David and Terrance; grandchildren, Daphne and
Wesley; daughters in law Brenda and Karen, brothers, Raymond, Ronald,
Gordon, Murray, George, Kenneth, Earl and Harold; sister Eileen.
In keeping with Mom wishes, there will be no visitation. A graveside
service will take place at a later date in Redbank United Church
For those who wish, donations to the IWK or charity of donor’s choice
would be appreciated by the family.
Forever in our hearts;
Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de Marion Lucille Galbraith 19302018..
