JANE GILBERTSON


Jane Gilbertson (née Hornby) died peacefully on November 8, 2022 at the age of 83 ½.
Jane was the matriarch of our small, tight-knit family. She is fondly remembered by her loving husband of 60 years, Vern; her cherished children, Robert and Janet and her adored granddaughters, Claire and Lauren.
Jane was an extremely thoughtful and loyal person. She was a member of the Brandon community for 50 years: active with Knox United Church, brought heart and soul into a family business, an international student exchange program area rep and founding member of PFLAG (Brandon). Jane developed and fostered many friendships. She accepted all people. The care and thoughtfulness she showed us and others knew no boundaries of gender, socioeconomic status and/or culture.
Jane was an intelligent, forward-thinking feminist. She took her nurses training at the University Hospital in Saskatoon. The women with whom she trained became dear, life-long friends. At the age of 50, she earned her Bachelor of General Studies from Brandon University. She was a critical thinker and our role model of lifelong learning.
Rather than mourn the absence of the flame, let us celebrate how brightly it burned. Let us comfort one another with our favourite memories of Jane. Let us celebrate the spirit of one very special person so that in our hearts, the flame will burn forever.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Jane may be made to the charity of your choice.


Family and friends are invited to leave condolences and memories at RememberingJane@LifeCelebration.ca.

  • I feel very lucky to have known Jane, who was always so kind and wanted to know how things were going in my life (not to mention her and Vern putting me up for a night when I passed through Brandon!). You could tell Jane was a community builder who touched so many lives, and I will miss knowing that she, and her kindness and loving acceptance, are with us. Here in Calgary, my father and I are thinking of her family. - Posted by: Grant Tilly (Family friend) on: Nov 15, 2022
