GIBSON: Mildred Louise (nee Dudenhoffer)



Louise has left us in her 87th year. 

Daughter of Horace & Mildred (nee Hurl) Dudenhoffer (predeceased), sister of Marie Brandreth, Dorothy Dudenhoffer, Frederick Dudenhoffer all predeceased.  A devoted wife & loving mother, she leaves behind to mourn her husband of nearly 62 years Alexander (Eric), daughter Carol Murray (Rick predeceased) of Thompson, MB, daughter Gail of Nanaimo, BC, and son David of London, ON.  She will be sadly missed by grandchildren David Murray of Winnipeg, MB, Riley Gibson of London, ON, Justin Murray of Gillam, MB, Kristen Murray of Toronto, ON, 5 great grandchildren, cousins, nieces and friends. 

Louise had a very active life being involved in many church & social groups, cross country skiing, swimming & walking for miles with her closest friends.  Louise had many creative talents and she kept our home bright & cheerful with her many crafts & artistic projects.  She was a talented seamstress making all her own and her children's clothes even while working full time shift work.  Everyone will miss her amazing baking & cooking skills.  Louise & Eric traveled extensively and all their travels have been carefully documented in her many photo albums. 

Louise worked her entire career with Bell Telephone in Orillia, retiring in 1985 after 31 years 1 month of loyal service.  The family wish to extend their gratitude to all the wonderful staff on Willow Lane at Spencer House for their exceptional care and support.  Cremation has taken place.  There will be no service at Louise's request. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer’s Society would be appreciated
