Mary Gertrude (Gertie) Savoy from Murray Settlement, NB passed away peacefully after a short illness on Friday, August 4, 2023, at Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
Gertie was born in Chatham, New Brunswick on October 11, 1938, to Francois Xavier Thibodeau and Mary Louise (Dignard) Thibodeau both of Beaverbrook, New Brunswick.
Gertie was mother to five daughters, Angel Dale of Harbour Round, Carolee Morais, of Edmonton, Brenda Morais (John) of Fredericton, Syrah Debby Savoy (Catherine) of Ottawa, Elaine Savoy (Ronald) of Collette, and one son, Christopher Savoy (Paulette) of Murray Settlement. She raised her children with love and devotion with her late husband Zen Damian (Junior) Savoy.
Gertie was a devoted wife who loved to travel. She adored the outdoors, nature, flowers, and gardening. Gertie loves lights from all sources from the brightest city lights to the stars that comprise astrological symbols to the soft blink of a firefly. She could help anything grow and patiently taught her traditional knowledge of survival with nature to both her children and grandchildren.
Gertie is survived by her children, and grandchildren, Kara Dale, Krystal Dale, Devon Hart, Justin Richard, Angel Richard (Chris), Harmony Butler (Rebecca), Branden Butler, and Cheyenne Savoy. She is also survived by her great grandchildren, Winter and Zaylee.

Gertie was predeceased by her parents, her loving husband of over 50 years, her sister Mary Jane Marsh (Mike), and brother Peter Thibodeau.
