The family of Phyllis Gibson is saddened to announce her peaceful passing on April 19, 2015 in Calgary Alberta at the age of 85 years.
Phyllis was born July 29, 1929 in Tisdale, Saskatchewan, the third of 9 children born to Margaret Jean (Armstrong) Lamb and Thomas Lamb. The pioneer family lived in Moose Lake and The Pas in Manitoba. Her childhood was related in stories of adventure, hard work and fun. Her marriage to Cal Gibson produced nine children who she claimed were her greatest accomplishments. Mom was most happy in the company of her family and never missed an opportunity to brag about each of her nine children, 22 grandchildren and 28 great grandchildren. Every house she lived in became her home decorated in her own unique style. Many people stopped outside her home in Enderby and commented on her beautiful yard. Mom loved to garden, can pickles and jams, cook for her family, decorate her spotless house and travel around in her car. She had a great sense of humour and loved to laugh and have fun with friends and family alike. She loved music and spent many hours reading and listening to music on her porch.
After leaving The Pas, Manitoba she lived in Vernon, BC, Victoria BC, Red Deer, AB, Enderby, BC and finally in Calgary, AB.
Phyllis will be sadly missed by her children – Barbara, Beverly (Robin), David (Connie), Tricia, Dennis (Shirley), Jennifer (Ken), Jeffrey (Denise), Conrad, Bruce, her grandchildren, great grandchildren, her brother Greg Lamb, numerous cousins, nieces, nephews and her many friends.
She was pre-deceased by her parents and seven siblings.
There will be no service at Phyllis’ request.
