To the family of Jean Gibson, It has been my pleasure to visit with Jean for the past fifteen years as a parish visitor from Immanuel UCC in Shillington. She was always interested in the happenings of the church, the community at large, and our family. As we walked the halls together, she would talk about her children and grandchildren, her life in the community and she always asked about our family as well. Always a most positive and gracious attitude , Jean celebrated her 100th birthday with her family and friends at Country Meadows in February 2016. A sincere thank you to her sons who kept in touch with me during the isolation of the covid pandemic. You were wonderful to your mother, and she loved you all. Our deepest sympathy to all the family, Ron and Elaine Laws
