Audrey Louise Gibbons-Bird, 78, of Sweet Home passed away Friday. She was born in Council Bluffs, Iowa to Paul S. and Esther M. (Buck) Walters.
She worked as a CNA and caregiver at Twin Oaks for ten years. She enjoyed long, scenic drives and singing in the Singing Christmas Tree. She loved her kitty, “Itty Bitty.” Her favorite poem was “Footprints.” She especially loved the last line, “My precious child, I love you and would never leave you. During your times of trials and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, It was then that I carried you.”
Audrey is survived by: her daughters, Cheryl Duncan of Washington, Debra Gibbons of Sweet Home, and Lisa Yarborough of Springfield; 13 grandchildren; and 23 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, John Gibbons (1986), and her sister, Marie Piranio.
At her request, no services are planned.
Arrangements are under the direction of Sweet Home Funeral Chapel.
