I know what a loss this is for all of her family and friends. She was the sweetest and kindest lady. Such a loss for all of us cousins who did not get to grow up together but we still felt the love for each other. She was an angel on earth now she’s an angel in heaven watching over all of her loved ones.

Libby was a very special Lady, always had a smile on her face, never letting anyone know she was in pain. Her family is also very special, please God give them the strength to get through the pain of losing this very special Lady. Pauline Johnson

Heartfelt sympathy for this dear family. She was such a sweet gentle soul and graced us all with her beautiful God filled spirit. Truly felt His presence through her loving witness. Blessed to have known her in just a small way.
