Obituary

Faye Gibbs was born in Laconia NH March 19, 1921 to Glendon and Marion Ingram and passed away on Wednesday April 29th at Belknap County Nursing Home.

She was raised in Concord NH where she attended Elementary and High School. Faye received a Bachelor’s Degree in Business from the University of New Hampshire in 1943. She met her husband, Ivan Gibbs, at UNH, they were married for 35 years.

She was a proud mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She worked outside the home including 9 years as registrar at Plymouth Teachers College, now Plymouth State University. She followed her husband to Massachusetts where she was registrar for Bay Path College, now Bay Path University, and after that as an administrative assistance for the CEO of Home Insurance. She returned to NH IN 1978 to take care of her grandchildren until she returned to work. Once back in NH Faye was the Director of the Bread and Roses Soup Kitchen at the Franklin Unitarian Universality Meeting House for 10 years where she was also a member. She was a gifted seamstress. She made her daughter’s wedding gowns and bridesmaid’s gowns. Her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren waited with great anticipation for their special PJ’s every Christmas.

She was a Rebekah at the Hannah Francis Lodge for over ten years, plus she is a Past Noble Grand. She worked with her daughter for many years in several different nursing homes as a volunteer in the dietary department and in their activity department as a seamstress working with residents on special quilts.

Faye is survived by an extended and loving family that includes her four daughters and their spouses, Susan and David Hazelton of Boise Idaho, Judy Farr and Karen Vliet of Laconia NH, Mary Gibbs and Virginia Bean of Belmont NH, Celia Gibbs and Wendy Palmquist of Plymouth NH; her grandchildren and their spouses’ Rebecca and Jody Fredette of Sanbornton, NH, Joshua Farr and Donna Seppy of Monmouth ME, Stephen and Mary Hazelton of Boise Idaho, and Sam and Jee Hazelton of Busan South Korea; and 9 great grandsons Trystan, Griffin, Jesse, Carter and Kilean Fredette of Sanbornton, Logan and Braley Farr of Monmouth ME, and Benjamin and Zachary Hazelton of Boise Idaho.

Faye said many times her greatest achievement in life was her four girls. All of them served, and continue to serve their communities in various professional and volunteer fields.She was extremely proud of them and their accomplishments. It was the strong intelligent, and compassionate women they became that gave her the most joy. Her family was indeed her life. She loved her grandchildren great grandchildren as much as her girls and she marveled at their successes. She was most proud of her family’s devotion to the land, its people and their country. She was kind, forgiving and the granite foundation of her family. She will be dearly missed.

The family will be forever grateful for the care and compassion she received as a resident of the Belknap County Nursing Home.

Arrangements are being handled by Mayhew Funeral Homes in Meredith NH. There will be celebration of life at a later time. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the New Hampshire Humane Society in Meredith NH, or the Belknap County Nursing Home Employees in Laconia NH.
