It is with deep sadness that the family of Sharon Violet Gilbert (nee Coulter) announce her passing on November 26, 2019 after a long and courageous battle with Parkinson Disease.  Mom was born in Moose Jaw and raised on the family farm in the Crestwynd area.

After completing high school, Mom attended teachers college and taught for several years at Red Lake and Boharm Schools. Mom met the love of her life, Bryan Gilbert, and they were married in 1961, starting their family shortly thereafter. Mom worked in a variety of positions throughout her career that included time at Macleod's, Co-op, drove a school bus, all while having a very active role in the farming operations.
