Gladys Doucet

Gladys, aged 85, passed away on July 26, 2023, at Moncton City Hospital surrounded by her loved ones. She was born in Lockhartville, NS, to the late William Emery Thompson and Lillian Mae (King) Thompson. Gladys is survived by her husband of 64 years, Maurice Doucet, and leaves behind four children: Sharon (Mick) Blenkin of Regina, Richard (Dianna) of Riverview, Blake of Moncton, and Carolyn (Peter Ameli) of Toronto. Her grandchildren, Patrick, Eric, Amanda, Ellen, and Luc, whom she adored, and her two great-grandchildren, Hunter and Florence, will deeply miss her. Gladys also leaves behind her siblings, John (Marie) and Arnold, as well as her sister, Leola Steele. She was predeceased by her brother Allan. Additionally, Gladys had a close bond with her sisters-in-law, Noreen of Miramichi and Lorraine of Bathurst, and is survived by numerous nieces and nephews whom she cherished.

Throughout her life, Gladys was constantly occupied with maintaining her home, keeping both the interior and exterior meticulously tidy. She always made time to connect with friends and family, speaking with them on the phone daily. She took pleasure in preparing and sharing meals with her visitors and was always willing to lend a helping hand or lend a sympathetic ear. Gladys had a fondness for animals and enjoyed observing the birds that flocked to her many bird feeders. During the summer, she dedicated a significant amount of time to caring for her flowers. She had an array of small collections and knickknacks, and her refrigerator was adorned with pictures of loved ones. Cooking alongside her husband Maurice brought her great joy, especially when they prepared grand feasts for gatherings with friends.

Gladys’s devotion to her children and grandchildren knew no bounds, as they were the center of her universe. With a strong will and a sense of humor, she embraced life to the fullest from her early years until her final days. A funeral service will be held on Monday, July 31, 2023, at Cobb’s Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Riverview, with Fr. Damian presiding. In lieu of flowers, donations in Gladys’s memory can be made to either the Friends of The Moncton Hospital or a charity of the donor’s choice.
