It is with broken hearts the family of Delcia Brideau announce her passing which occurred at the Saint John Regional Hospital Palliative Care Unit on Thursday May 24th, 2018 surrounded by her loving family. Born in Tracadie on December 8th, 1930 she was the youngest child of the late Peter and Claire (Robichaud) Bulger. Delcia was a Registered Nurse and worked at the General Hospital for a few years and later decided she would like to be a stay at home mom. She was a devoted wife, mother, sister, aunt and friend. She was so thoughtful and was known in her community for having cookies for the neighborhood kids. This past year was a gift, we thought we would lose her last May. We were so fortunate to have more time. Delcia is survived by her loving and devoted husband of 57 years Hubert “Bill” Brideau; daughter Nicole Knox (Robert); son Marc Brideau; adopted brother Wilfred Robichaud (Ella); brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law Yvon and Leonie Brideau, Simone Landry, Mary Brideau and Bernie Brideau; feline grandchild Abby; many nieces, nephews and friends. Along with her parents she was predeceased by sister Clara; brothers Aurele, Gerald and Reny; adopted brother Pierre Robichaud and adopted sister Therese Rouselle; brothers-in-law Roger, Gerry and Frank.
