Born in lower Queensbury, NB, on June 8, 1921, she was the daughter of the late Howard and Blanche McLaughlin and wife of the late Reginald Kitchen. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family.

She is survived by her three devoted sons, Glenn (Audrey), Gerald (Rose Donnelly), and Andrew (Martha), all of Fredericton; Nine Grandchildren, Shelly Kitchen, Natalie Walker, Krista Liston, Lisa Sullivan, Trina Kitchen Coté, Sean Kitchen, Jason, Jonathon, and Matthew Kitchen; Numerous Great Grandchildren; Two sisters-in-law, Freyda Gereau and Hazel Kitchen; and several nieces and nephews throughout Canada and the United States.
