BARBARA ‘BOBBIE’ JEAN GIBSON Nov. 18, 1932 – Jan. 2, 2023

Barbara “Bobbie” Jean Gibson of League City, Texas passed away peacefully on January 2, 2023, surrounded by her loving family.

Bobbie was born November 18, 1932, to William E. and Christine M Reccius in Louisville, KY.  She graduated from Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio in 1953 specializing in music and education.

Bobbie was happily married to Calder A. Gibson in 1957 after he graduated from seminary school. Following many pastoral callings, Bobbie and Calder lived and served in Wantaugh, NY;  Bridgehampton, NY; Watermill, NY; Clear Lake City, Texas and Los Alamos, NM.

During this time, Bobbie taught in Seabrook, Texas and Los Alamos, NM while also teaching private lessons in violin and piano and serving as backup organist at church. Bobbie played in both the Santa Fe and Clear Lake symphonies with what she described as “fiddling around”.

She retired to League City, Texas in 2006 to be near her children where she was an active member of Christus Victor Lutheran Church in League City, Texas until her passing.

Bobbie’s life was filled with music, love, family, cooking, teaching and giving. She lived her life selflessly serving God, inspiring all who met her. Her unconditional love of family and faith will keep her legacy alive for generations.

Bobbie was predeceased by her parents William and Christine Reccius, sister Jody, Aunt Cheryl Reccius, husband of 56 years Rev. Calder A. Gibson II, in-laws Calder A. Gibson and Geraldine Gibson.

Bobbie is survived by son Calder A. Gibson III, daughter-in-law Mary Gibson, son Michael Gibson, grandsons Travis Gibson (wife Violetta) and great-grandson Gavrill and grandson Jayson Gibson (wife Meagann).
