She is survived by her children, Trey Gibbons of New York, NY, Lorie Addison (Mike) of Montgomery, Mary Beth Gibbons of Sugar Hill, GA, Kim Gibbons Brothers (David) of Suwanee, GA; six grandchildren, Ansley Claire & Alex Addison, Cameron, Butler Ann & Aidan Brothers, Abby Gibbons; sister, Ruth Watson; brother, Dennis Stough, as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins. Sue was preceded in death by her husband, James Franklin Gibbons, Jr.; parents, Elsie Dennis Stough and Herschel Eugene Stough. Sue graduated from Macon Academy in 1964, and then attended St. Margaret’s Hospital School of Nursing and finished in 1967 as a Registered Nurse. She was a staff nurse and Nursing supervisor from 1973-2001 at Baptist Medical Center South. She was best known for proudly wearing her white nurse cap until the day she retired. Upon her retirement, she worked part time at the Montgomery Surgical Center until 2018. She loved the NY Yankees baseball team, southern Gospel concerts and traveling. Sue dearly loved her Frazer church family. She was a lady of strong faith and this helped her through 31 years of fighting cancer. Visitation will be held on Thursday at 11:00am at Frazer Memorial UMC with a funeral service at 12 noon with Rev. Larry Bryars officiating. Burial will follow the service at Salem Macon Baptist Church cemetery in Notasulga, AL. Sue loved flowers and the family will accept them, but two charities close to her heart were Joy to Life and Women of Hope. A special thanks to her sister, Ruth Watson; the doctors and staff at MD Anderson & Montgomery Cancer Center; as well as Kindred Hospice for their excellent care.

Sue was one of my nursing supervisors when I started my first job at BMC in 1973. She was such a great supervisor and freind. We reconnected several years ago when she came to my current job. We enjoyed talking about old times. She was the most positive person I have ever known. She loved life and was so determined. I talked with her last week to learn she was in in Hospice. Her voice was weak but we still prayed. She will be missed by many that she blessed every day with her smile and positive outlook on life. Love you Sue.

Our first memory of Sue was in 1993 when Joe’s father was at Baptist in a coma. The night he passed away, Sue was on duty and was the first person that came in as soon as he flat-lined. We will always remember the compassion that she showed to our family.

In addition, seven years later her daughter, (Lorie)and our son (Mike) became husband and wife. Since then we have shared the family and two precious grandchildren together.

She will be missed!!

Kindness...obviously that’s what Sue obviously practiced; I can see it through her children. What a fabulous legacy she has! My prayers and thoughts are reaching out now. I feel very fortunate that I knew her through the love and respect for her through her son, Trey. I’ve been blessed hearing about her, and I will continue to be blessed by knowing her son and hearing about his sister, Lorie and her family and other family members. Love and comfort for each of you.
