Verna Gilbart was born in Kenora, Ontario on February 19, 1925. Her father Maurice Brown was a Railroad Engineer with the CPR.

After Lloyd’s discharge from the RCAF he became a Ford Dealer, and thru Ford Verna and Lloyd travelled the world. They spent 36 winters in Arizona until Verna became stricken with dementia. She spent the last 3 ½ years at Hogarth Riverview Manor and passed away peacefully on May 16, 2021 in her sleep at the age 96.

I worked for Verna's son Terry, and whenever she and Lloyd came to the office for a visit, we would have a little chat. She was always gracious and friendly. My condolences to the family.

Our parents grew up with Verna (and later, Lloyd) in Kenora and were lifelong friends when they all moved to the Lakehead. Verna was such a wonderful woman and a devoted wife and mother. Our condolences to Lloyd and family at this sad time.

Dear Loyd and family, I have very fond memories of the happy and fun times that my parents, John and Irene Nickerson, had with you and Verna golfing, curling, at dinner parties and more! My thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
