Margaret Wilma “Willie” Gibson

Margaret Wilma “Willie” Gibson, wife of Paul Allen Gibson Sr., departed this life on Sunday, January 23, 2022, at Meadowview Regional Hospital, having attained the age of 86 years. Willie was born on November 11, 1935, in Cumberland, KY, the daughter of the late Edward and Maxie Mae Smith Morris, attended Berea College and Thomas Moore College, was a retired teacher, and a member of First Baptist Church, Paris, where she had been a part of the Ruth Ramey Sunday School Class for many years.

In addition to her husband Paul, she is survived by three sons, Paul Allen Gibson, Jr., and wife Lori, Robert Edens Gibson, and wife Mindy, Everette Bellamy Gibson and wife Lisa; three daughters, Diana Lynn Gibson, Hester Jean Tapp and husband Mark, Jennifer Margaret Csolkovits and husband Mark. Also surviving are twelve grandchildren; two sisters, Delores Davis and husband Gene, Patricia Scopa and husband Joe; and a brother, Raymond Green Morris and wife, Shelby Sawyer.

Willie was active throughout her life in the churches she attended, often serving as church librarian, Sunday School teacher, and Bible Study leader. Her faith was the cornerstone of all that she did.

Willie’s hobbies and passions included all children, but ESPECIALLY her children and grandchildren. She was an avid reader of all genres of books, and enjoyed using the computer and internet as a tool to keep up with all the people she loved.

There will be a private graveside service for Margaret Wilma “Willie” Gibson with Rev. Don Reed and Pastor Kyle Sullivan officiating. A celebration of Willie’s life will be scheduled later this year for family and friends to gather and remember her life.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggest that donations be made to St. Joseph’s Indian School , Chamberlain SD; Salvation Army; or First Baptist Church of Paris, KY.
