McGLOIN, ELIZABETH (BETTY) HICKMAN - Our gracious Mom passed away peacefully on December 30, 2013 at Oakwood Terrace nursing home at the age of 93. Betty was born in Newfoundland on August 18, 1920 to the late Reverend George and Virtue (Milley) Patten. As a young lady she became a registered nurse at the Grace General Hospital in Saint John’s, where she met her husband Gerald Thurston McGloin, who was stationed there with the air force. Betty was a gentle, fun-loving, intelligent, generous, resourceful person. Her life was devoted to family, friends, and travel. She found great joy in family celebrations, wintering in Spain, 1942 nursing class reunions, church choirs and activities, and many friendships around the world. Other interests included reading, languages, sewing, walking, music and dancing. Her smile and humour will be greatly missed. We’ve lost a great soul. Lovingly remembered by her children Dianne Garant, Michelle (Munro) Foster, Wanda Barrett, Gerald (Carolyn) McGloin, Roxanne McGloin, Patrice Wong, Cynthia Chandler, and Richard (Joan) McGloin. Betty had a great fondness for her grandchildren Donna, Steven, Erin, Jennifer, Robyn, Bruce, Gala, Jack, Liam, Leighton, Erica, Noelle, Meaghan, and for her great grandchildren Andrew, Ryan, Jessica, Niko, Rose, Alasdair, Eamon, Madaket, Ewan, and Alejandra. Predeceased by Jerry, her husband of 62 years; brothers Jack, Hector, and Donald; and grandson Timothy. We extend deep gratitude to Betty’s Oakwood Terrace family and all previous caregivers.
