SIBLEY – George E, passed away peacefully in Queens General Hospital, Liverpool on Sunday, April 18th, 2010 at the age of 93.
Born in Chaswood, NS, he was a son of the late George Stephen and Ellen Jane (Sargent) Sibley.
George enjoyed a happy childhood growing up with his parents and eleven brothers and sisters on their farm in Chaswood. During the war years, he joined the RCMP which led to a long and successful career with the force retiring as staff sergeant in 1969. He was stationed in Ottawa for most of his working years, where he and Peggy brought up their three children. They returned to his beloved Nova Scotia after his retirement and settled in Beach Meadows where he kept a large garden and was active in the church and community. He was a very strong man, honest, stable and dependable. We thank God that he was blessed in so many ways with a long and healthy life.
