Obituary for Carole A. Gibson

Peoria- Carole A. Gibson, age 79, of Peoria, passed away at 8:50 AM Sunday, September 16, 2018 at Richard L. Owens Hospice Home.

Born November 5, 1938 in Peoria she was a daughter to Maurice and Marian (Blair) Cox. On May 16, 1959 she married Robert W. Gibson Sr.

Carole worked as a Registered Nurse at OSF St. Francis Medical Center and then later worked at the University of Illinois College of Medicine from where she retired. She truly enjoyed her nursing career. She was actively involved in numerous clubs throughout her life. She enjoyed her time with the Caterpillar Mixed Chorus, Peoria Area Accordion Club, and the Bushmasters Camping Club. Her involvement within the Theater Arts all across the Peoria area will truly be missed. In her free time, she enjoyed sewing and playing with her beloved Boxers. During the winters she enjoyed visiting the Gulf to escape the cold weather.

Survivors include her two daughters Mary C. Gibson of Peoria, Anne (Steve) Post of Ft. Walton Beach, FL; four sons Kevin Gibson of Bellevue, Christopher (Jane) of Eureka, John (Gena) of Chattanooga, TN, and Robert W. Gibson Jr. (Sue) of Peoria, twenty grandchildren, and sixteen great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, and Daughter-In-Law Patricia Gibson.
