Mary Frances (DeClue) Gibson was born April 15, 1931 in Potosi a daughter to the late Ellen Elizabeth (Moon) DeClue and Benjamin Francis DeClue. Mary departed this life Thursday, June 3, 2021 having reached the age of 90 years, 1 month and 19 days.
On April 17, 1949, Mary was united in marriage to the late Charles Gibson and together they happily raised their children and were blessed with many years.
Mary is survived by her daughters, Rose Duncan and husband Lloyd of Union, Ruby Ellen Bird of Union, Carol Lewis of Potosi; son, Charles Thomas Gibson and wife Joyce of Potosi; son-in-law, Charles Walther; Sixteen grandchildren. Twenty-five great grandchildren, several great great grandchildren and many nieces, nephews other relatives and special friends.
In addition to her parents and loving husband, Mary was preceded in death by her daughters, Charlotte Stroup, Ruthie Walther; grandchildren, Heather Walther, Jared Bays, Daniel Walther; great granddaughter, Natasha Pankey and brothers, Benjamin DeClue, Leo DeClue and Melvin DeClue.
Mary had a kind and caring heart, always having others in her thoughts and daily prayers. She always prayed for her family, past and present. She always gave the advice to anyone who was going through difficult times to just give it to God and let him do his job. She was a faithful member of the St. James Catholic Church and dedicated her life to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ at a young age.
She was a member of the Ladies Sodality, St. Vincent DePaul Society and helped with the church picnic. She considered it an honor to care for the priests’ garments and carefully cleaned and sewed anything that needed mending. Being alone with Jesus was her favorite time and she prayed the Rosary every day. Her love and solid example of faith will be missed by those who had the pleasure of knowing her.

As a young teen I worked with Miss Mary and Neva Walton at Missouri Bargain Store in the 1960's. They were both so nice to me as I was a naive punk kid. Miss Mary was very humble, raising a very young and she was a very hard worker. She never had a cross word even when the days were hot and long with no air conditioning. Bless you, Mary.

Mary was one of the kindness, sweetest ladies I have ever met. I lived next to her and her family when I was growing up.
I was at her house all the time. Played together with her girls. I teased her and said I was probably a pest ,I was there so much.
I remember all the cooking and sewing she did for her family. Biscuits every morning from what I can remember.
She made my wedding veil when I got married. She was so talented with her sewing. As I have aged I can still remember so many things about her. She was the one who invited me to come to church with her and her family. She took a dear lady shopping with her quite often who lived next to her. And visited people in the nursing homes. Checked in on my dad. She was such a giving person.
I will truly miss her but I know she is with the Lord now. I was so Blessed to speak to her on her 90th birthday! Loved talking and hearing her voice. Mary you were a Blessing in my life and I will always love you.
My prayers and thoughts go out to Rosemary, Ruby, Carol and Tommy.
Love you all
