Elizabeth Anne "Bibi" Broderick, 68, of Antigonish passed away on September 17, 2021 in St. Martha's Hospital surrounded by family and friends.
Born in Antigonish she was the elder daughter of John and Frances (Anderson) Broderick. She graduated from St. FX with a B.A. and a B.Ed. She then worked in Halifax and later in Antigonish in customer service. At her beloved Cameron's Jewellery she savoured the excitement and anticipation of the "X-Ring orders". She also enjoyed volunteer work in the community. Her love of history and keen interest in genealogy made her the neighbourhood historian.
Bibi enjoyed painting, dancing, Motown music, jewellery, watching basketball, making her famous peanut butter fudge and shopping for family and friends. She also had a special fondness for cats and horses.
Bibi's family and friends were the center of her life. She was blessed with wonderful friends whose love and support sustained her thoughout her life and especially during her courageous struggle with cancer. In her extended stay at St. Martha's Hospital she enjoyed a warm relationship with the nurses and staff. At her final home in Mary's Court, Parkland she was surrounded by love and compassion from both staff and residents.
She is survived by her sister Mary Jo, brother John Lorne, both of Antigonish, nephew Eric, Trenton, aunt Marge Anderson, Berwick, uncle Reginald Gauthier, Halifax and numerous cousins.
The family extends a special thank you to the staff of the Progressive Care and Palliative Care Units at St. Martha's Hospital as well as the staff of Mary's Court, Parkland and Doctors Elizabeth Cooper, Ron MacCormick and Jane Anne Howard.
