She was born on 07/25/41, to parents Gladys and Bill Cox, in Lebanon, IN. In 1958 she graduated from North Salem High School and married Hobert Gibson. The young couple traveled to Florida and returned to Indiana to start their family. Knowing their love for Florida, in 1969, they permanently moved to Florida where they raised their 3 daughters: Fonda Fay, Denise Kay, and Yolanda Rae. In the Lakeland area, she managed their successful delivery and logistics business while raising their family.
In 2001, she married her second husband, Don Williams. They spent their retirement years travelling in their RV enjoying many destinations while crossing the United States visiting friends and family.
