I am so sorry to hear this. I remember Libby from our teenage years. Being married to one of her cousins, is how I got to know her. I hadn't seen Libby in a longtime but her name would come up from time to time and it would bring a smile to my face. Gone but never forgotten.

Mrs Libby was a loving, caring, beautiful and very humble lady. She was my manager at Hamricks. She always had a smile. I never saw her with a frown or complaining of anything. I loved going to work just to tell her good morning and hear her sweet voice. I will truly miss her dearly she will never be forgotten. Sending my condolences to Steve and the family...

Libby was the sister I never had. She was my first cousin that stayed with us during some of her childhood and teenage years. She was older than me and was like a “big sister.” I will never forget the laughter and fun times we had together as children and as adults. Heaven gained an angel today. I know it was a joyous reunion day in Heaven. You will be greatly missed and never forgotten. Love You Libby...we will see you there.

My aunt Libby was such a strong woman. She taught me the true meaning of being a Christian: love everyone no matter who they are or what they’ve done. I’ll never forget her love of Elvis Presley. I remember when I was younger I told her she was so good to me and my brother Rick that I wanted her to watch my kids some day. I have two kids now and one on the way. Even though she never got to baby sit my children, I was still blessed for her to have known them and show the same love to them as she showed to me. She is very missed and I send my love and condolences to Steve, her brother and sisters William, Diane, and Cindy, her son Mick, her grandchildren, as well as all of our family and her dearest friends. I love you, Libby! You are in the Lord’s arms now along with Opal and Shell living a great and eternal life in Heaven.

Libby was my older sister, and as long as I can remember she was my best friend and my rock. All Libby’s life she walked thru her faith and only saw the best side of everyone.
We all knew that to know Libby was to love Libby and she will be greatly missed.
I loved you , sister and I hope you remembered to tell Jesus I said hello
