Germaine Gibb (nee Vandendorpe), beloved wife and partner in life of James Gibb for over 54 years, passed away peacefully in Carman, Manitoba on October 26, 2018 with her family by her side.

She will be forever remembered by her husband Jim; her children Daryl, Dawna, Carl (Tracy) and Arlene; her grandchildren, Brett, Rylan, Kiefer, Colton, Mikayla and Meghan; her brother and sisters Annie, Simone (Ron), Rene (Irene), Angele and Mary (Rene); sister and brothers-in-law, Don (Darlene), Marguerite and Robert (Sally) as well as many nephews, nieces and friends.

Germaine was born on March 15, 1943 and grew up in Altamont. She married Jim in 1964 and they raised their family on the Gibb family farm in Miami. Germaine spent many hours volunteering in the Miami and Carman communities and later on in life enjoyed playing cards and caring for her garden.
