Gibbons, Nicole June 'Nikki'

Nikki Banks of Meaford passed away at Victoria Hospital in London on Tuesday, January 7, 2020 at the age of 40 after a short and courageous battle with cancer.

She was born on October 23, 1979 in Breton, Alberta, the daughter of Keith and Linda (nee Mills) Banks of Alberta.

Nikki will always be remembered as the loving and devoted mother of Madison Gibbons, and will also be remembered fondly by Madison’s father Bryan Gibbons of Meaford.

She was the caring and supportive sister of Paul Banks (Bev Hodgins) of Holstein, Peter Banks (Kim) of New Liskeard, Denise Pearce (Hugh) of Granton, Danielle Banks and Jessica Banks, both of Warburg, Alberta. She was predeceased by her brother Raymond Banks and by her grandparents Sheldon and June Mills and Harold and Iona Banks.  Nikki will be missed by her many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Family and friends meant the world to Nikki and she valued her time spent with them. She enjoyed playing baseball, going to concerts and generally having fun with her friends Kati Burgess, Pam Atkinson and the many other friends she made over the years, ‘All the People’!  Nikki has worked for Grey County Housing for several years and was very passionate about her job and the tenants she supported and assisted.

    My condolences to Nikki’s family…so heart breaking. I’ve dealt with Nikki numerous times as she brought her puppy into our store at Pet Valu Meaford. Always so happy and asking my advice on everything her puppy needed. I just cannot believe she is gone now. Rest in Peace Nikki and may you continue to guide your daughter in life from heaven above.

    To Nikki Gibbons Family,
    I was very sorry to learn that Nikki passed away. She was a dedicated Tenant services manager. I am currently living in one of her apartment buildings from Grey County housing that Nikki previously looked after! She was very caring and wonderful to chat with! Nikki always made time for me and had a good listening ear! Nikki will be sadly missed by myself along with several other tenants within the Grey County housing apartment buildings that she looked after through the years! I will keep you ( Nikki’s family ) all in my prayers during this very sad time! I was also very sorry to learn also that she developed cancer. God Bless her!
    With much sympathy to you all, Sincerely, Christina Watson.

    Nikki was a coworker and became a great friend over the years. I will deeply miss Nikki’s contagious smile and laugh, the determination, drive and huge heart she had and her attitude to never give up! She will be missed beyond measure and I will forever cherish the time we had together!

    I am thinking of Madison and wish her peace in knowing how deeply her mom loved her! Also thinking of all her friends and family at this extremely difficult time!

    All my thoughts and prayers to everyone!! May we all hold onto all the special memories we have of an extraordinary woman we all loved!

    As a former (now retired) Grey County co-worker, I had the privilege and enjoyment of working with Nikki on a number of occasions. I admired her energy, passion, and positive supportive attention to the citizens we served. As already expressed, Nikki had a ready smile and was always willing to help out. She will be missed by many. My thoughts and prayers to her family, friends, co-workers and clients.
