Shediac River, NB – Claudette P. Tingley, 66, passed away peacefully at the Moncton Hospital, surrounded by her loving family on Wednesday, December 30th, 2015, after a courageous battle with cancer.
Born in Moncton, NB, on July 9, 1949, she was the daughter of the late Jean-Pierre (John) and Blanche (LeBlanc) Gallant.
Claudette and her family lived in Mississauga for 17 years where she worked as a waitress. They moved back home 25 years ago and she began working at Fisherman’s Paradise as a cook until the day the restaurant closed. Claudette made the best bread, tea biscuits and pies.
Claudette was a loving daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt. She was always the strong one, even when she wasn’t feeling well, she always carried on. She always had strength to share with all of us. Family and togetherness is what mattered most to her.
