It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Gwendolyn Mary (Gibbons) Bugden on Sept. 11, 2012. Born on July 16, 1922, in Newfoundland, she was a daughter of the late William and Emily (Elliott) Gibbons.

After nursing in Toronto she settled in Sydney River and nursed at the former St. Rita Hospital in the maternity ward. Prior to her retirement in 1977 she worked as a pharmacy clerk for Manson's Drug Store in Woolco for 10 years.

Mom loved to play bridge with a group of her close friends; a tireless volunteer for the S.P.C.A.; a dog lover, a painter in her own right and she especially loved to travel with her daughter Wendy to London, England, Bermuda, the United States and across Canada.

Surviving are her loving daughter, Wendy (Murray) Hannem, St. Ann's Bay; grandson, Anthony (Hanya) Hannem, Toronto; granddaughter, Nancy (Wayne) Martin, Halifax and four great-grandchildren, Hayden, Emma, Jack and Maggie; nieces, Elizabeth Mulak, Gwendolyn MacLean and nephew, Allan Ball. Gwen was the last surviving member of her immediate family. Besides her parents she was predeceased by her loving husband, Wesley Bugden; brothers, Anthony and Harold Gibbons and sister, Peggy Ball.

A special thank you to the staff at the Alderwood Rest Home, Baddeck for their compassion and care which enabled Gwen to die with dignity. At Gwen's request there will be no visitation. Cremation has taken place under the care and direction of MacAskill's Funeral Home, Baddeck. A graveside service will be held at St. Mark's Anglican Church Cemetery, Coxheath at 3 p.m. With my good friend Diane Kempt DLM, and Rev. Karen Qurick, officiating, Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2012. Family flowers only by request.
