ISLAND POND — Arrangements are pending for Frieda Neubauer Gibbs, 95, who died peacefully in West Lafayette, IN, on June 6, 2012.
She was born in Germany, married Oscar Gibbs, who died in 1997, of Woodstock where they lived some 40 years. In the mid 1980s, they retired to Island Pond, the place Mrs. Gibbs treasured for the deep friendships she developed.
For many years she worked at the Mary Hitchcock and VA hospitals as EEG and EKG technician, jobs in which she found great satisfaction.
She loved many things – animals, gardening, needlework, books, puzzles, people, and rousing discussions and debates.
But above all, she loved her family. She is survived by her daughter Inge Erickson of West Lafayette, her grandchildren, Cassandra Erickson and partner Jackie Weller of Indianapolis, IN, Catherine Toon and husband of Brian of Colorado Springs, and her great grandchildren, Veronica, Rachel and Robert Toon. She will be missed very much, but she resets in the loving comfort of the Lord.
