Marie Olive Gibson, 87, passed away Monday afternoon, November 5, 2018, surrounded by her loved ones. Born on May 21, 1931, in Pawtucket, RI, where she met the love of her life, Bill. When Bill returned stateside, Marie knew right away that she wanted to spend her life with him. Marie proposed to Bill and returned to Texas with him after their wedding on November 27, 1952.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Harold and Olive Kolb, and siblings Harold Kolb and Gloria Stroker, and husband of 60 years, Bill Gibson.

Marie spent most of her life in the heart of the hill country as a homemaker, raising two sons and a daughter on the ranches in which Bill managed. Marie enjoyed spending time with family and cared for many children throughout the years.

Marie enjoyed the more simple things in life as she made it a point to be present at every soccer, basketball, volleyball, little league game as well as track meets, Christmas programs and graduations. She loved watching classic movies, and signing along with the radio (a few of her favorites were Barry Manilow, Keith Urban and Brooks and Dunn), and visiting with dear friends, also she looked forward to Thursdays visiting with her friend Pat Clark and Friday afternoons with Mary at the beauty salon. Marie also stayed true to her roots by enjoying numerous New England Patriots (who are lovingly referred to as “her boys”) football games.

Marie Gibson is survived by her sister Pat Nelson, sons Lynn Gibson and wife Cynthia of Burnet and Wayne Gibson and wife Della of Granite Shoals, daughter Lisa Ulbricht and husband Ronald of Marble Falls, grandsons Hunter Gibson, Patrick Gibson and wife Britney and Brandon Colclasure; granddaughters Whitney Woerner and Husband Zed, Kendall and Rylie Ulbricht.
