TWU To Hold Memorial Service For Gertrude Gibson

3/5/04


DENTON — Texas Woman’s University will say farewell to long-time friend Gertrude Gibson with a public memorial service on Sunday, March 21 at 2 p.m. in Hubbard Hall. Ms. Gibson, a TWU benefactor and retired employee, died Feb. 22.

Ms. Gibson began her career at TWU in 1934 and retired in 1987. During her time at TWU, she served as director of development, worked in the Dean of Women (now Student Life), admissions and registrar’s offices, as well as traveled throughout Texas and adjoining states promoting TWU. She was a graduate of McKinney High School, Baylor University and TWU.

She was involved in and honored by numerous civic organizations. Her organization memberships included the Denton County Historical Society, Denton County 4-H Club Committee, National Home Fashions League, Heard Natural Science Museum and Wildlife Sanctuary, Texas Farm Bureau, Beautify Texas Council and Wild Basin Institute for Environmental Studies.

In 1983, she received the Friend of 4-H Award from Denton County 4-H. She received the TWU President’s Award in 1985 for her part in establishing the first Texas Wildflower Day. In 1987, she helped found the Denton Beautification Committee, which evolved into Keep Denton Beautiful.

Memorials can be made to the Gertrude Gibson Endowment Fund at TWU, P.O. Box 425876, Denton, Tx. 76204.
