Some of her best memories were going to Ken's Corner in the 50's and 60's with her best friend, Irene Christian. They always shared a piece of pie over close conversation and a lot of laughter.

She was preceded in death by two brothers Richard and Bobby Gibson, a sister Rose Gibson Whitfield, and grandson Chad Alan Phelps.
