Erlene, most lovingly called Nannie, was a huge family influence. She devoted her life to caring for and protecting her family. Her gentle touch, sweet spirit, and listening ear were characteristics for which she will be remembered. She lived for family reunions and time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her strong will and quiet strength were elegantly fierce. She adored Alvin and the times they spent together on their farm. She was a lady of true inspiration who will be missed dearly by all that knew and loved her.

I am saddened of the passing away of Mrs. Gibbs. I have known , along with my Mother, her family as long as I can remember. They lived on block over from me. I always remember our sweet conversations at Church right before the Wednesday night supper at Church or anywhere I would see her. She was such a sweet, caring Christian lady. I will miss her sorely. But she is with God now and with Alvin and Glenda and all of her family. Heaven gained an angel ❤️.
