Obituary Condolences

Goldie L. Gibbs

Our beloved and devoted mother passed away on Jan. 29 at the age of 98. Goldie faced many hardships throughout her life, but when she was dealt lemons she made lemonade. She never had an unkind word to say about anyone. She was a life member of Hadassah, received the Chapel of the Four Chaplains Award from the City of Philadelphia for her volunteer work, and was President of the Haverford Hospital Ladies Auxiliary.

She is survived by her daughter Arlene Eckell (Harvey) of Newark, DE, son Leslie Gibbs (Diane) of Havertown, PA., three cherished grandsons, three great-grandchildren, and brother Joseph Sokoloff.

Funeral services will be private. Shiva will be observed 5 p.m. Sunday 1/31 at the home of her son; and 7 p.m. Monday 2/1 at the home of her daughter.

Contributions in Goldie's memory may be made to Kentmere Rehabilitation Center (Employees Fund), 1900 Lovering Ave., Wilmington, DE. 19806. Our sincere thanks to them for the warm and wonderful care they gave our mother.
