92, passed away peacefully on February 11, 2021 after a long illness. She was the wife of the late Robert C. Gibbs and the only daughter of the late Arthur G. and Julia M. (Goozey) Johnson. She, along with her parents, was among the original residents of Touisset Highlands, RI.
For many years, Mrs. Gibbs was an elementary school teacher in Warren and always strove to elicit from her pupils their full potential.
Graduating from Pembroke College (Brown University) in 1950, she was active in alumnae affairs, receiving the honor of class marshal at her 50th reunion.
In later years June wintered in Naples, FL and as a member of the Naples Garden Club won many prizes for her floral arrangements. She also had a great deal of fun accompanying her family on many antique car club driving tours.
June is survived by her son, Dr. Kendall A. Gibbs of Barrington and her beloved grandchildren, Flora and Daniel.
A celebration of her live will be held at a later date. Donations in her memory may be made to the Alzheimer's Association or The Leukemia And Lymphoma Society.

I was so sorry to see that Mrs. Gibbs recently passed away. I hadn't seen her in years, but thought so much of her when I was a child. She was my 3rd grade teacher at Child St. School, and also my 4th and 6th grade teacher at Hugh Cole Elementary. I loved her, and always thought that she requested that I be in her class! In third grade, I remember thinking that she was so pretty, with her matching cardigans, ribbon headbands, and floral earrings. I admired her so much. She was a good teacher, and she expected her students to do their best. I can remember reading in the Warren Times Gazette many years ago that she retired. I was living in Alexandria, VA at the time, and wrote her a note telling her how much she meant to me as a child. I will always remember her fondly, and offer my condolences to her family.
