Obituary for Carolina Gibson

Carolina M. Gibson 100, died in peace just one day after her 100th birthday at 11:35 am Thursday May 14, 2020 at her granddaughter Angela’s home. She was surrounded by her loving family and close friend Hannah while listening to Christian and country music which she so loved.
She was born May 13, 1920 in Canton, Illinois to Otis and Lola (Standard) Lingenfelter.
She is survived by many loving family members, including daughter Sandra (Emanuel) Manias of Peoria and son Alvin K. Barber of Peoria, brother Leonard Lingenfelter of Peoria and sister Mickey Williams of Bonita Springs Florida. She has seven grandchildren, Katena (Frank) Lagouros, Angela (Rick) Farnan, Robin (Monty) Raymond, Kasandra Roberts, Ken (Michelle) Barber, Tara Barber, and Brent (Amy) Barber all of Peoria area. Carolina also had nineteen great-grandchildren and five great-great grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents, three brothers, six sisters, daughter in-law Dana Barber and grandson in-law Scott Roberts.
“Granny” loved the time she spent with her family. She was a devoted and caring mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and surrogate mother to all of her bothers and sisters early in their lives. Everyone coming in contact with her throughout her life came to love her and she treated them as her own family. She was an avid St. Louis Cardinal fan and enjoyed listening to the games on the radio. Carolina had many hobbies including bowling, traveling, hiking, reading, and needle point. Some of her favorite memories are of vacations with her sisters to parks where they could be outdoors and enjoy nature.
Carolina worked at Standard Oil and later at Prairie Farms for more than thirty years as a bookkeeper. Loyal as they come, she still made sure we drank our milk from Prairie Farms. Granny will be missed dearly.
Funeral services will be Tuesday May 19, 2020 at 3:00 at the Lutheran Cemetery in Peoria where the Chaplain Scot Shelburne will officiate.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to HOI CHD walk raising awareness for congenital heart defects in honor of great grandson Blaze Farnan.

May her memory be eternal.
