It is with great sadness the family announces the passing of a strong, honest, generous, wonderful, warm hearted, Wife, Mom, Gram, and Great Grammy, Audrey Estella (Gladstone) Geldart at her home in Elgin, NB with family by her side.
Audrey was the eldest of thirteen children born to Leslie and Freda (Duff) Gladstone in Colpitts Settlement, NB.
Audrey enjoyed her many years living on the farm in Coverdale before moving to Elgin. Besides being a great cook (no one ever left her table or home hungry), she was a very talented seamstress and enjoyed working with her hands. Leaving behind many handmade quilts, embroidered, and knit items for all the family to cherish. Donating many preemie sweaters, bonnets, and mittens to the hospital over the years.
Audrey's greatest joy in life was spending time with her family, and she will be sadly and fondly missed by her son Ralph, daughters Lois (Hamish) Lynn, Susan (Robert) Geddes who she resided with for over 30 years, and Pamela Roberts (Doug).
Grandchildren, Ashley (Gord) Meek, Travis, Jenna (Nick) Lynn, Nathan, Adam Geddes, Justin Geldart and Luke (Kristen) Roberts. Great granddaughters Madison and Maple Meek.
She will also be missed by her sisters Loretta (Aubrey) McCormick, Marjorie Benoit, Frances Pond, Diane, Donna (Ron) Scott, Brenda (Mike) Donegani, Marlene (Robert) Morrell, brothers Stuart (Sherry) and Rodney, as well as many other family members and friends.
Audrey was predeceased by her loving husband Gerald Sidney Geldart (1996) and missed him everyday since. Her brothers Percy (Elsie), Robert and Reginald.
Special thanks for many years of mom’s kind and excellent care are being sent to Dr. Kathy Ferguson and her staff. PSWs who made it possible for mom to remain at home for the last two years. Especially Lois OBlenis for your kindness and support.
Arrangements are in the care of Salisbury Funeral Home (372-4800). Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, a family burial will take place at Fairhaven Cemetery, at a later time. If desired, memorials to the Diabetic Association or a charity of the donor's choice would be appreciated.
We are so thankful for Mom's life and take comfort in the fact that she and Dad are reunited now and will continue to watch over us. We will never forget Mom you were one of a kind.
Sleep Now Mom/Gram
Although we cannot see
We feel your presence near.
We will hold you close in memory,
Till we drop our very last tear.
Thank you for the gift
Now you're sharing it up above.
You had many things to
All in a caring way.
You always saw good in
No matter what we had done
You were always the one
we could all lean on,
Even though it must have felt like a ton.
You were always the
strength of the family.
Now we must let you rest calmly.
Mom/Gram you are one special angel,
a really gentle,
So sleep now with the angels,
And let your golden heart rest.
Although our hearts are broken,
We know GOD took the best.
So dance beyond those golden gates,
And join our loving Dad/Grampie up in the sky
And although this pain is painful,
And we really don't wanna let you go,
We'll wait for death to take us
So we can together one day glow.
Until that day, we'll
close our eyes
and see your smiling faces.
We'll lock you up inside our heart
Until we again embrace.
