Emma Diane “Connie” Gibson, 79, passed away unexpectedly Thursday, Oct. 10, 2019. She was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the daughter of the late Julian Fisala and Emma Ayento.

Connie greatly loved her family and was a very loving and giving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend. Her home was always open to everyone. It was the go-to place for family, neighbors and friends, in good times and in bad times. She enjoyed her beer, thrift stores, finding a bargain and going out to eat for a steak dinner.

She was preceded in death by her husband, William Ray Gibson; and sister, Regina G. Sawyer.

Left to cherish her memory are her children, Ronnie Clouse III (Penny), Dawn Rochelle Roberson (Henry), Niki Hall (Gareld) and Deanna R. Gibson; sister, Arlene Coral; six grandchildren, Jordan, Tayler, Aly, Sydni, Trey and Camryn; and three great-grandchildren, Ember, Landon and Stuart.

A memorial service will be held at 4 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 15, at Rosewood-Kellum Funeral Home.
