It is with deep sadness that the family of Zena Garbutt share her passing in St. Andrews by the Sea on June 16, 2023.


Born in Glasgow Scotland on September 8,1930, Zena was the daughter of the late Meg and Gavin Caldwell of Scotland.


Zena was an active and dedicated member of the Saint John the Baptist at Chapel of Ease Anglican Church in Chamcook New-Brunswick.
