Virginia was born in a family home near the community of Dowell in Fisher County, Texas, to George Hale and Lizzie Lee Young on June 14, 1927. She attended several schools in the area and graduated from high school in Roby, Texas. Virginia married A.L. Gibson a handsome young sailor just of the service at Sagerton, Texas on February 21, 1946.

Virginia and A.L. were partners in the business of farming cotton and rearing children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren until his passing in 1997; always challenging and sometimes very hard, but truly a wonderful life. For the last 55 years of her life, home was at 182 Dubois St in Toyah, Texas. While there in addition to her farming and child rearing duties, she at various times served as city secretary, city council woman, election judge and school board trustee. Virginia was "Front & Center" at most civic events and all school events until the Toyah schools closed. "Ma" and A.L.'s four children graduated from Toyah High School in a school building built by their great-great grandfather in 1912. Virginia was the driving force in the preservation of the Toyah Methodist Church and the creation and operation of the Toyah Senior Center. She spent her days caring doing for others.

Virginia was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; four sisters- Georgia Faye Young, Linda Moore, Peggy Rollans and Thana Terry; son Randal Gibson; son in law Otto Renz; grandchildren Matthew Gibson & Jinnifer Gibson.

Virginia is survived by: Lynn and Sandra Gibson and family; Richard and Bernie Gibson and family; Barbara Gibson and family; Susan Renz and family and eight grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren in all.

Pallbearers will be Jason Gibson, Bradley Gibson, Aaron Gibson, Gregory Gibson, Brian Gibson, and Wade Dodson. Honorary Pallbearers will be Sydna Hunter and Monday Ledbetter.
