Zella Florine (Burris) Gaudet


Zella Florine (Burris) Gaudet
It is with great sadness that the family of Zella Florine Gaudet, age 90, announce her passing on April 26, 2019 at Hospice House, Fredericton NB. She was formerly from St. George NB, and most recently a resident of Sainte Anne's Court, Fredericton.

She was born in Eel River Crossing on December 27, 1928, and was the daughter of the late Loran and Mildred (Perrott) Burris.

She is survived by two daughters: Gail (Douglas) Dewar and Trudy (Louis) Dalton both of Fredericton NB; two sisters: Donna MacIntyre of Eel River Crossing NB and Jean Bradford of Utopia NB; two sisters-in-law: Dorothy Carr of Sussex NB and Mary Richardson of Blacks Harbour NB; three grandchildren: Neil Dalton, Erin Dalton and Brian Dewar; one great-grandchild, Duke Dalton; and several nieces, nephews and cousins. In addition to her parents and husband, Maynard A. Gaudet, Zella was predeceased by one brother: Gerald Burris; sisters: Vera Bernard and Betsy Turner.

Prior to retirement, Zella worked as a packer for Moirs Chocolates in Dartmouth NS. In her spare time she enjoyed watching TV, playing cards, especially bridge, and being outside gardening. One of her greatest accomplishments was getting her driver's license at the age of 44 and she enjoyed the freedom it gave her. A great cook and baker, Zella looked forward to meals spent with her family and truly enjoyed having them around, especially her grandchildren.

Arrangements in the care of the St. George Funeral Home (755-3533) 26 Portage Street, St. George NB. Resting at the funeral home on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at 1:00 pm, leading into a Memorial Service beginning at 2:00 pm with Rev. John Martin officiating. Interment will be at the Pennfield Rural Cemetery, Pennfield NB. A reception will be held at the St. George Curling Club following the service. In lieu of flowers donations to the NB Heart & Stroke Foundation, Hospice Fredericton or to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated by the family.
