Obituary of Genevieve M. B. Dugas

It is with great sadness that the Dugas family announces the passing of Genevieve Bertha Dugas, wife of the late, Denis Joseph Dugas, which occurred at the Saint John Regional Hospital, on May 26, 2020. Born in 1925 on Nov. 14th in Nash Creek, NB, Genevieve was the daughter of the late, James Murphy and Emilie Hickey.


Genevieve is survived by her brother, Tim (Audrey) Murphy of Lorne, NB; daughter, Bonnie (James) Kinnamon of Maine; son, Curtis (Cathy) of Rothesay, NB; grandson, Corey (Joanna) great-grandson, Neil, of Saint John, NB; granddaughter, Sabrina (Adam) Spence of  Halifax, NS; great-grandsons, Jack and Nate of Halifax, NS. Besides her husband and parents, she was predeceased by her brothers: Selvaster, Dossie, Ralph, Abe; sisters: Opal, Evelyn and Rita.

In 1950, Genevieve and Denis decided to move from Lorne, NB to set up their roots in Saint John, where they raised their children whom they took great pride in. During her working years, Genevieve was supervisor of the Dietary Kitchen at the Saint John Regional Hospital for 35 years, retiring at the age of 65. In her free time she enjoyed knitting, reading, going for walks, watching her favourite TV channel, Bravo.


Family and friends are invited to a gathering to celebrate Genevieve’s life on Sunday, May 31, 2020, from 2:00 – 4:00 PM at 24 School Avenue, Rothesay, NB.
