Obituary of Denise Thibodeau

It is with broken hearts that the family of Denise Thibodeau announces her passing at home on November 5, 2021. Born in Saint John on May 13, 1957, she was the daughter of the late Uldric and Claire (Comeau) Thibodeau.


In Denise’s earlier years, while raising her children she was a long-time member of the Crescent Valley Tenant’s Association and a member of the community garden. Over the years Denise loved to play bingo, go line-dancing, do puzzles, and most recently found love in travelling South (especially to Cuba). You could often find her at Tim Horton’s in the morning with the coffee crew, afternoon naps on her couch, and Penny’s deck in the evenings. Denise’s favorite time of year was Christmas, she loved everything about it especially going Black Friday shopping for many years. Denise was employed with Service New Brunswick (Fundy Linen) for 18 years where she happily retired in 2020.
