The Gibbons Family helped us bring Maureen home to Ireland

Michael Gibbons and his family have been long time volunteers of the Irish American Heritage Center. When Maureen, a senior member and founder of the IAHC passed away, it was imperative that her final resting place be in the town she was raised in Ireland. “This can really be a complicated situation, but Michael Gibbons made all of the calls and coordinated the transportation. If it wasn’t for Michael, it wouldn’t have happened” says John Gorski. Adding “My wife and I were able to get on the plane and take Maureen back home. He made it seem simple when it wasn’t”. Mr. & Mrs. Gorski did accompany Maureen to her final resting place. Together, her friends honored her wishes.

Families have many circumstances they need to cope with when a loved one passes away. The Gibbons Family has been helping families cope with loss for 3 generations and consider it their honor to do so. “No matter what we need to do to help people, we will,” says Michael Gibbons. Amid all the arrangements that need to be made and coordination of family and friends, the most important thing every family needs to be able to do is celebrate the life of someone they loved and not worry about anything else during that time. The Gibbons Family knows and understands this.
