ELIZABETH PIDGEON
September 20th, 1934 ~ September 29th, 2016

“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavour by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” – Washington Irving

It is with a sense of sadness and loss that the family of ELIZABETH PIDGEON, announce her passing at the Burin Peninsula Health Care Centre on Thursday, September 29th, 2016, at the age of 82 years.

Her spirit and the wonderful memories she created will be carried on by her sons, Joe (Brenda) and Dick; daughters, Julia (Ray) Mitchell, Charlotte Mitchell (Tony Mayo), Kate (Brendan) Pretty, Ella Jackson (Carl Strowbridge), Jackie (Steve Flannigan), Maureen (Albert) Linehan, Agnes, Barbara Fitzpatrick (Deena King), Marguerite (Randy) Smith, Velma (Randy) Parsons, and Linda (Darryl) Hodder; sisters, Kathleen (Howard Dober), Beatrice Barry and Alice (Ernest Farrell); sister-in-law, Mary Matthews; 26 grandchildren and 32 great-grandchildren, all of whom always brought a smile to her face. Also left with wonderful, precious memories are numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends, especially those friends she made at the Marystown Retirement Centre, including her special friend, William (Billy) Paul.

Elizabeth was predeceased by her husband, John Joe; baby daughter, Josephine; mother, Alice (Mallay) Brushett; father, James J. Brushett; step-mother, Ann (Brake) Brushett; sisters, Julia (Brushett) Brake and Selina (Brushett) Farrell; brother, Jim Joe Brushett; parents-in-law, Mickey Joe and Julia Pidgeon, along with many other friends and family members who were so much a part of her life. “A Mom’s hug last long after she lets go.”

The Mass of Christian Burial took place at Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in Marystown on Monday, October 3rd, at 2:00 p.m. Cremation followed. Inurnment will take place at a later date.
