GOULET, Gina Yvonne Marie

The Chronicle Herald (Provincial) - - OBITUARIES -

Age 54 of Shube­nacadie. On April 19, 2020 Gina was abruptly taken from this world by an act of sense­less vi­o­lence. Born in Mid­dle­ton, she was a daugh­ter of Yvan Goulet, of Brook­lyn, and the late Ros­salyne (Mckee) Goulet. Gina was a vi­brant, dy­namic woman and a proud mother. Her free spir­ited in­de­pen­dence led her to live a life of ful­fil­ment. Whether she was on the beach in Cuba, on the river bank with her fish­ing rod, at her cot­tage with the dogs, spend­ing time with her fam­ily, danc­ing salsa in her liv­ing room or en­joy­ing the com­pany of her horse - she al­ways had a smile on her face and grat­i­tude in her heart. She will be re­mem­bered for her kind­ness, gen­eros­ity and abil­ity to light up a room. Her laugh­ter and zest for life res­onated with any­one she met and she has left this world with much more than she ever took from it. Gina was a sur­vivor. She con­quered cancer in 2016 and again in Jan­uary 2020 but never let it de­fine her life. Her ex­pe­ri­ence was only fuel to live with more love and ap­pre­ci­a­tion in her heart. Gina was a den­tur­ist of 27 years. Hav­ing the abil­ity to lit­er­ally put smiles on peo­ple’s faces was one of her great­est and proud­est achieve­ments. Gina will be sadly missed by her beloved daugh­ter, Amelia (David) But­ler; fa­ther, Yvan; brother, Rick (Dawn) Goulet; sis­ter, Micheline (Joseph) Kerekes; nieces, Lexi Goulet, Brit­tany Goulet and Kris­tian Kerekes; nephew, Ju­lian Kerekes; a num­ber of aunts, un­cles and ex­tended fam­ily. Cre­ma­tion has taken place un­der the care of Et­tinger Fu­neral Home, Shube­nacadie. Friends are wel­come to sign a guest­book which will be set up out­side of Et­tinger Chapel En­trance, 2812 High­way 2, Shube­nacadie from 1-8 p.m. on Tues­day, April 28th. This needs to ad­here to the Covid-19 guide­lines, so we ask that folks take their own pen if pos­si­ble and ad­here to so­cial dis­tanc­ing while briefly leav­ing their car to sign. Please note that Gina’s fam­ily will not be on­site and loi­ter­ing will be pro­hib­ited. A Cel­e­bra­tion of Gina’s Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial do­na­tions may be made to the Cana­dian Cancer So­ci­ety. Trib­utes, words of com­fort and mem­o­ries of Gina may be shared with the fam­ily at: www.et­tinger­fu­ner­al­home.com
