Pamela Sue Gibson was born on Jan. 7, 1953 to Robert H. and Georgia M. Gibson. She was just a farmer’s daughter. She left this world to go back to the earth on April 15th, 2014.

She was married to Den Hewitt on Sept. 12, 1970, who survives her at their home in Atwater, Calif.

She also leaves behind her legacy:

Daughter Denise and Mike Mendes, wonderful grandchildren Bethany and Nathan Mendes of Atwater, Calif., and son Dennis and Robin Hewitt, wonderful grandchildren Hannah and Ethan Hewitt of San Antonio, Texas. She also leaves behind her sister Nancy and Bob Murphy, nephews, Kelley and Justin Murphy, all of Isabel and niece, Robyn Murphy of Wichita, along with several very good friends.

She is preceded in death by her son, Robbie; granddaughter Amanda Mendes; her parents, Robert and Georgia Gibson; her grandparents George and Avonel Weir, and Les and Tracy Gibson; almost all of her aunts and uncles and several very good friends.

She will be laid to rest by her son at a small graveside service at the Isabel, Kan., cemetery sometime this summer. A celebration of life will take place at her favorite place, Tary’s pizzeria in Atwater, Calif. at a future date.

Because she had rescued animals all her life, in lieu of flowers please give to the Merced Animal Pound or to Best Friends Animal Society.
