Ethel May Gibbs

Ethel May Gibbs

KILMARNOCK—That’s all folks!

Ethel May Gibbs (nee Scholes) bravely won the battle and made it to the other side on June 8, 2023, at the age of 82. She was the loving wife of the late Bruce; sister of Andrew (Gloria); mother of Aileen, Kenneth (Linda), Sandy (Tommy), Joan Ellen (Tim), Wendy (Michael) and David (Tammy); grandmother of Eric (Alicia), Brian (Kristina), Patricia (Alfredo), David, Alex, Brad, Albert (Natasha), Amy (Brian), David (Bethany), Kimberly, Natallia, Cjandis, Christian (Molly), Elizabeth (Hunter), Melissa (Giovanni), Caroline, Victoria (Saige), Rebekah and Charity; great-grandmother of Florence, Jake, Flick, Brian, Zakk, Ethan, Emery, Ezra, Amora, Aurora, Aria, Matilda, Enzo, Alison and future generations; as well as aunt to several much-loved nieces and nephews.

Ethel was sad to leave her 10 well-adjusted and loving cats… do you want one?

Over the years, Ethel was a faithful friend to many and made lifelong memories, beginning with her kindergarten classmates whom she remained in touch with until the end. In her golden years, she spent countless hours with her dear friends at the Yankee Point Yacht Club.

Growing up, Ethel adored her grandmother with whom she delighted in frequent tickle fights. Now reunited, rest assured they will be enjoying an eternity of tickles and giggles!

Ethel’s final instructions were that her children spread the word that she loved her family very much, and to tell those she had not yet met in life that “I promise to get to know you all better when we meet in the future, I can hardly wait!”

Ethel was incredibly grateful to her Hospice team (especially Julia and Erica) and requested that in lieu of flowers donations be made to Hospice of Virginia.

Ethel will be missed by everyone, but her legacy will remain. Really folks, that’s all!

Currie Funeral Home LLC of Kilmarnock handled the arrangements.
