The passing of Margaret "Elaine" (Murray) Gillespie, wife of the late James J. Gillespie, occurred at the Saint John Regional Hospital, Saint John NB on March 11, 2022. Born in Pennfield NB on March 9, 1933, she was a daughter of the late William and Margaret (Davidson) Murray. A loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Elaine is survived by one daughter: Audrey (Allen) Whittier of Seeleys Cove NB; one son: Billy (Sandy) Gillespie of Pennfield NB; three grandchildren: Shawn (Ruby) Whittier, Shannon (Dale) Shaw and Jessica (Jon) Doucet; four great-grandchildren: Alyssa Whittier, Gus Doucet, Dale Shaw and Audrey Whittier; and several cousins. In addition to her parents and husband, Elaine was predeceased by one sister in infancy.
Prior to retirement, Elaine worked as a cook for several local restaurants. She was a lady of simple pleasures who enjoyed doing puzzles and watching a Blue Jays game on TV. She loved to spend time with her family and also cherished the time she spent with her friend, Joyce Justason.
The family would like to thank everyone at Kindred Home Care
