Beatrice Gibbons

Beatrice Gibbons, 92, of Oak Park, died on Oct. 22, 2022. She was a proud Ascension parishioner for 63 years, where she served as Minister of Care and lector. She also was a very well-regarded volunteer at West Suburban Hospital.

Beatrice was the wife of the late Patrick Gibbons; the daughter of the late James and Jane Foy of Oak Park and sister of the late Jane Foy Kaczor; the mother of Catherine (Lawrence) Sujak, Elizabeth, James (Emily), Mary Alice Farrell and John (Elizabeth); the grandmother of Peter (Stephanie), Mark Sujak (Orlando Perez), Mary Beatrice Sujak, Sarah, Patrick and Lydia Methe, Jack, Kevin and the late Brendan Farrell and Thomas and Ann Marie Gibbons; and the great-grandmother of Patrick, Malachi and Camellia.

A funeral Mass was celebrated at Ascension Church, 800 S. East Ave., Oak Park on Oct. 28.

In lieu of flowers, the family would greatly appreciate donations in her name to Giant Steps, a therapeutic day school for individuals with autism. Her grandson Brendan, whom she loved dearly, and who preceded her in death by hours, greatly benefited from his many years there.
