Linda A. Gibson
MOUNT VERNON — The world lost a living angel Nov. 5, 2005, Linda A. Gibson, 55.
My Lucy, my love, went to heaven to be with her daughter, Carrie, which she didn’t have the opportunity to enjoy raising because of an early death. A graduate of Whitehall Yearling Class of 1969, she was employed at Kenyon College dining.
She is survived by her loving mother and father, Robert and Mary Rodecker of Florida; grandparents, Jack and Mary Marcum of Columbus; sisters, Jody and Michele; her loving aunt, Sheila Sphar; her best buddy and No. 1 uncle, Patrick Colborn; her sister at heart, Judy Baker; special friend, Rose Gallagher; many caring cousins and friends; and Stephen D. Thompson, her soul mate, love and companion. She enjoyed my family of five brothers, one sister, two daughters, one son and 10 grandchildren.
She was a stranger to no one and everyone that knew her loved her. We will all miss her.
Friends may call today from 6 to 7 p.m. at O.R. Woodyard Co. Chapel, 1346 S. High St., Columbus, Ohio. There will be a second service in Mount Vernon on Monday, Nov. 14, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the AMVETS Recreation Hall.
