Mrs. Jeanell Gibson

Mrs. Frances Jeanell Yates Gibson, age 78 of Franklin, Georgia passed away at her home on April 3, 2014.

A private visitation for family will be held on Tuesday, April 8, 2014, from 10:30-11:30 A. M. from the Tom Stutts and Son Funeral Home, immediately followed by funeral services officiated by Reverend Neil Awbrey.

The interment will follow at 3:00 P.M.  in the Georgia Memorial Park in Marietta, Georgia with Reverend Rita Whitlock officiating.

Mrs. Gibson was born in Bowdon, Georgia on May 30, 1935, the daughter of the late Alice Arvester Nixon Yates and Wheeler Monroe Yates.

In her younger years Mrs. Gibson worked at the Clayton General Hospital where she was an x-ray technician. She loved gardening, and enjoyed sharing vegetables from her garden with family and friends. One of her many talents was quilting.

Anyone fortunate enough to have one of her designs had a real piece of art. She was a Charter member of the Heard County Chapter of the UDC. If you knew Mrs. Gibson, you were aware of her great devotion to her Evangelistic work with the Free Spirit Ministry.

After her devotion to the Lord her family was her next priority. She was a loving mother, grandmother, and sister. She will be missed by all who knew her.

She is survived by her two sons, Michael Gibson (Betty Lou Palmer), and Jason Gibson all of Franklin, GA.; one sister, Selma Bowen also of Franklin, GA.; five grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; and a host of adoring nieces and nephews.

The Tom Stutts & Son Funeral Home of Franklin, Georgia is in charge of arrangements.

    I am so sorry to hear about Jeanell. She was my best friend in high school. I’ve been thinking about her lately and wondered why she didn’t send a Christmas card. We haven’t been close for a long time because I live so far away in New
    Mexico but I still cared a lot about her. She was a good Christian and a good friend. I will see her again in heaven. Ruth Cavender

    Thank you Ruth for those kind words for Jeanell. She thought so much of you and would
    mention you often. The last few months were not easy for her. She was ready to meet her Maker.
