Anne Marie Gibson (nee Heslin), age 58, passed away peacefully, surrounded by family on November 21, 2021. Anne was born March 23, 1963 in Toronto, Ontario to her loving parents Elizabeth (Betty) and Michael Heslin. She married Tim Gibson her high school sweetheart, best friend and the love of her life on April 30, 1988. She was the beloved mother of Ryan and Adam and grandmother to Amaya and Avaya. She loved each of them with her whole heart.
Anne was happiest when she was surrounded with friends, family and nature. She was a self taught gourmet chef and loved to entertain and cook for everyone around her, usually with organic garlic and vegetables from her own garden.
Her love of travel with Tim, family and friends was essential to her life and included excursions across Canada, Europe and Australia. The warmer the destination the better. One of her special places was the family cottage in Mactier where you would find her swimming, kayaking or relaxing on the deck with a glass of wine in her hand.
Anne was truly a generous soul and always thought of others before herself. Birthday and Christmas presents had to be just right and were purchased months in advance. Her years of volunteering and working at Matthews House Hospice are just one example of how she lived her life.
Anne was a cherished sister and sister-in-law to Mary and Dan Anscomb, Donna and Jim Bottrell, Carol and Doug Leigh, Darren and Ronni Gibson. Beloved daughter-in-law of Jack and Lenore Gibson. Adored aunt of Leigh, Jacqueline, Thomas and Rebecca Joyce, Emily and Sarah Bottrell, Nathan and Sophie Leigh, and Kara and Reid Gibson. All of whom she loved deeply and who will never forget Crazy Aunt Annie.
Anne was a small person with a giant personality. She was the embodiment of laughter and strength and will forever hold a special place in the hearts of all who had the joy to know her.
