Condolences to family and friends of Gwen Tibbs. I have sweet memories of her as a committed Drew School coworker, sorority sister and loyal friend to my Williams family. Her warm, soft spoken demeanor plus her ever-ready smile made it a joy to be in her presence.
May God's comforting grace be with her loved ones as they mourn the loss of this lovely lady.
