My mother, Josephine Gibbons, attended to and treated the sick and the dying of the St. Mary's Bay area during the period of time when she was the district nurse - from the 1930's until she retired in 1975. My father, George Gibbons, supplied the materials for building caskets in his General Store in St. Mary's. After the 2-3 day wake period (which was held in the home of the deceased) he would carry the casket in his truck to the church for mass and then to the graveyard. In the early 60's I became a Funeral Director. I used a station wagon as a hearse. On many occassions family members would express their desire to have a funeral home in the area. So in the early 1980's I opened up my first funeral home in a building that was used as a medical clinic in St. Mary's. Then in the late 1980's my personal residence was renovated to become our current Funeral Home. After my mother's death in 1995, as a way of keeping her memory alive, it became and still remains the "Josephine Gibbons C.M., R.N. Memorial Funeral Home" - She received the Order of Canada in 1992. Just inside the main entrance of the funeral home there is a showcase displaying her many momentos of her long nursing career. When my wife, Jean retired from a teaching career, she also became a funeral director. We were later joined by our son, George. Whenever a family has to deal with the loss of a loved one, no matter what age, it is never easy. Jean, George and I feel that we are providing a service that can bring comfort during a very difficult time in the lives of the people of the St. Mary's Bay area. We are inspired by the following quote from a famous British writer:

"What do we live for, if it's not to make life less difficult for others." G. Eliot
