Ola "Eileen" Gamblin
Ola Eileen Gamblin nee Barr, 73, of Moncton, NB passed away Tuesday, March 13, 2018 at the Moncton Hospital. Born in Perth, NB to the late Oley and Irene (White) Barr, she was predeceased by her husband, Lewis Gamblin.
Mom was earthy, loyal and strong (for an itty bitty thing, lol). She was a lover of anything outdoors. She loved animals, gardening, fishing, playing darts and watching hockey, especially her Maple Leafs. She loved her family and spending time with loved ones.
She was extremely soft hearted. She was always taking in strays be it animal or human and would give you the shirt off her back. If you had a friend in mom, you had a friend for life, as she always treated friends as family. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
Mom will be lovingly remembered by her children Steve (Lorna), Kim (Alain), Robyn (Danny), grandchildren, Ryan, Jason, Samantha, Chrystian, Jenn, Nick, siblings Paul, Darryl (Donna), Fred (Sue), Phillip (Judy), Gary (Helena), as well as several nieces and nephews.
Besides her parents and spouse, Eileen was also predeceased by siblings Ron, June, Elizabeth, William, Linda, and Sandra.
By request, there will be no formal service. There will be a Celebration of Life gathering for her close friends and family at the Tracy Rec Center, (4445 Heritage Drive, Tracy NB) on Saturday March 17 from 3-6 pm.
If desired, in lieu of flowers, memorials to a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.
