Genevieve Grace Anglin


Genevieve Grace Anglin

My valiant mother, Genevieve passed away peacefully in her 99th year at Rocmaura Nursing Home, Thursday October 5th.  Gen was born in Bloomfield the eldest daughter in a family of 12 of the late Francis and Agnes (Adair) Hodgin. Genevieve was a kind and intelligent person who lived a quiet and contented life, devout in her faith and centered in family.

Gen was predeceased by her loving husband Patrick Anglin; cherished sons Michael and Sean, son-in-law Deno Pappas QC; brothers Murray, Harold, Bernard and Kenneth and sisters Marion Donnelly, Pauline Mercer, Mildred Cormier and Madeline Mercer.

Surviving is her daughter Patricia Anglin of Saint John; sisters Muriel Richard (Alair) of Saint John, Barbara Sands of Hampton and Carol Gilchrist of Norton; as well as many nieces and nephews.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the care and loving attention paid to Genevieve from the staff at Hopewell Court, who made Gen a comfortable home during the past 10 years and her final days in the Palliative Care Unit Terrace Court, Rocmaura.
