Marlene Blanch Gibson

June 1, 1932 - October 21, 2022

Marlene Gibson, age 90, passed away peacefully on October 21, 2022. She was born June 1,1932 in Kelso, Washington, where she graduated high school and later married Vern Gibson July 3, 1952. They spent 65 years together, moving to Indiana, Texas, and finally back to Washington, where they were together until his death in 2017. She was very social and would make fast friends with total strangers, never holding back her thoughts on any subject. Over her lifetime she had numerous and unique jobs, from writing the local gossip column to serving up samples of pizza or breakfast sausage at the local grocery store in the 70’s, long before it was a thing. She loved animals especially her ferrets. She is survived by her 4 children, Susan Ketch, Nancy Hillis, Bill Gibson, and John Gibson, nine grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren. She will be missed.
