Ann Rose Gorber

Ann Rose Gorber

Ann Rose Gorber (formerly Fridhandler, nee Parelman) was born in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia on August 25, 1933 and passed away in Moncton, New Brunswick on February 9, 2021.

She was loved and will be forever missed by her entire family and close friends. Ann is survived by her son Daryl Fridhandler (Ellen) of Calgary and Sheryl Simon of Toronto and her grandchildren Arnie Fridhandler (Rachael Wolf) and Rachel Fridhandler, both of New York, Natalie Simon of Vancouver and Jordan Simon of Toronto. She was predeceased by her parents, Abraham (Abe) and Rachel Parelman, and her brother Harold Parelman and sister Sandra Ely.

Ann enjoyed time with her immediate and extended family, attending many family celebrations over the years. She never passed on an opportunity to travel to places near and far, usually around family events or holidays. She was the belle of the ball in her earlier years, and always a gregarious and gracious hostess. She was also a real balabusta - in charge of the home and a wonderful cook who made sure family and friends were never undernourished with great food.

With her immediate family living away from her, she was helped by some close friends, and our heartfelt thanks go out particularly to Nicole Druckman and Ann Dunn-Allen, and her friends and the staff at Canterbury and Monarch Hall in Riverview, NB, where she lived happily in recent years.

A private graveside service will be held in Moncton, New Brunswick on Friday, February 12, 2021.

Arrangements entrusted to Fergusons Funeral Home, 1657 Mountain Road, Moncton (858-1995).
