Jean Gibson passed away on January 3, 2014 in Princeton, British Columbia at the age of 85 years.

Jean was born in Trail, B.C. on March 24, 1928 to David and Jean Reid.

In her youth she loved dancing and ice skating. At the age of 21 she met John and they married on July 1, 1949, and were married for 62 years prior to John’s passing in 2013. Jean was a kind and generous woman who devoted her life to her husband and seven children.
