Agnes Gibson Obituary
Agnes Gibson, born Agnes Roszel, started her life in Kansas 96 years ago. She was the 6th of 8 children. After her father died when she was a teenager, she helped support her mother by working in the Singer sewing machine store then working for Cessna Aircraft Company during WWII, where she was called Rosie the Riveter. She met our dad, Orville, when he volunteered to take her and others to and from church meetings; she eventually became the last one he dropped off. They were married in the Methodist church in Hutchinson on June 1, 1946. They moved with their two children to California in 1950 and eventually moved to Lodi. She was always active in her church, including leading the women's group and singing in the choir. She, along with our dad, was president of the PTA during our high school years. Some people recognized her from seeing her working at Woolworth's for many years. Mom and Dad enjoyed traveling throughout the U.S. as well as Japan and through the Panama Canal. After our dad died, she became a volunteer for many years at the nursing home where he had been a patient (and where she spent her last 2 years) and was volunteer of the year multiple times. She extended her travel adventures with her daughter until late into life. She is survived by her two children, Eric and Mary Anna, who always knew they were loved.
Her visitation will be on January 9th from 12:00 to 5:00 at the Lodi Funeral Home. Her funeral will be held at the First United Methodist Church at 11:00 on January 10th.
