Obituary for Sylvia M. Gibbs

October 1, 1937 - March 4, 2015
Austin, Texas | Age 77


SYLVIA M.GIBBS died March 4, 2015, at age 77 in her 3-J apartment, 1801 Lavaca St., Austin, TX, 78701. She had been seriously ill for several years, first with lupus in 1964, then emphysema about seven years ago, and finally the more recent possibility of Parkinson's.

Sylvia is survived by her husband Jack after 53 years of marriage, by her daughter Laura K. Gibbs (the wife of Anderson White), and by her sister Virginia Edelson (the wife of Josh Edelson). Jack and Sylvia lost their adopted son Douglas long ago.

Sylvia was born in Carlsbad, NM, the daughter of George and Mayme Kroenlein. She grew up in Midland, TX, and attended Colorado College. After graduation from CC she moved to Austin in 1959, where she met Jack. It was a grand romance.

In keeping with Sylvia's clearly expressed desire, there is to be no funeral service. Just remember her as having been a very kind and loving person.

Although Jack would appreciate the sentiment, he does not want telephone calls or visits. He can talk about his loss only with great difficulty.
