Gibi was born in Haywood on July 20th, 1937. Her greatest loves were her family, friends, and gardening. She also loved to sing and sang in a band with her husband and family. One of her greatest joys was assisting people in whichever way she could. As a passionate card player, she loved a good game of Chase the Ace with her grandchildren. There were many memories made camping in various places around the province. When she was living at the farm, she enjoyed gardening and feeding the hummingbirds. She made many special friends through her Al-Anon group and her church. Her places of employment over the years were MTS, Marr Fashions, Home Care, Andy Young’s Greenhouse, and most importantly, a homemaker to all her family.
