Louise G. Gibson, 94, of Stony Brook, New York, passed away peacefully Saturday, August 6, 2016.
Born June 28, 1922, in Ellwood City, she was the daughter of the late George W. and Katherine Young Gayle. Her maternal grandparents were George S. Young and Clara Hamilton Young. She was married for 58 years to Wilfred A. Gibson, who passed away on June 3, 2004.
