Vernon L. "Vern" Sabean
Vernon Lawrence Sabean, husband of Betty (Limkilde) Sabean, passed away on Wednesday, August 1, 2012 at the Saint John Regional Hospital. Born in Saint John on March 11, 1928, he was a son of the late Saul Sabean and Hazel Mae (Hibbert) Sabean. Vern was a loving husband to Betty for 64 years, a wonderful supportive father to Tim and Pam. Vern was the owner and operator of Vern’s Bakery. "It is always fresh because we bake it right here".
