JACQUELINE (GIBSON) IRIBARREN Jacqueline (Gibson) Iribarren, a long-time resident of Pilot Rock, Oregon and the Columbia Basin, passed away Tuesday the 4th of July surrounded by her family. Born in 1939 in Pendleton, Oregon, Jackie was the oldest of five children and graduated from Pilot Rock High School in 1958. Jackie received her Business degree in Portland, Oregon and returned to Pilot Rock to work for the local Lumber Mill as a secretary until she married Pascual Iribarren in 1962. She raised four children in the Mesa, Washington area and helped to run a farming and ranching enterprise across the Columbia Basin for twenty years before returning to the Pilot Rock area. Jackie was an avid horse enthusiast and rider, spending much of her youth breaking horses, competing, riding in the Pendleton Round-Up and showing horses at livestock events. Jackie loved animals, raising them all of her life and in her later years, she bred and raised several unique horse and other livestock breeds on her farm near Pilot Rock. She is survived by her four children, Martina, Miguel, Patrick and Steven, her former husband, Pascual Iribarren, siblings, Janet McKague, Joyce Gibson, Thomas Gibson, and Buster Gibson, eleven nieces and nephews and seven grandchildren, who all love her dearly.
