Vale – Judy Gibson

Vale – Judy Gibson

Born 7 August 1933
Passed Away 10 January 2016
Rugby League lost a very good friend and a strong supporter when Judy Gibson passed away on Sunday, aged 82. Judy was the wife of Team of the Century coach, Jack Gibson and the couple were married for more than 50 years when Jack died in May 2008, aged 79.

A caring and personable woman, Judy ensured the many visitors to the Gibson’s Cronulla home, felt at home. She was the perfect host and it didn’t matter whether you were an international sporting identity, a leading business figure or a neighbour who dropped in for a coffee, you were treated with the same respect.

Alongside Jack, she shared many big Rugby League moments and decisions, while at the same time she was an excellent mother to her six children. Judy had time for anyone and everyone and was often asked for advice. Over the years she and Jack spent plenty of time and money on charity pursuits, particularly in anti-drugs campaigns after the loss of their 25 year old son Luke in 1988. She will be missed by many.

Judy is survived by her five children, Susan, Tracey, Joanne, Matthew, John and their families, along with her eight grandchildren and six great grandchildren.

Her funeral will be held this Friday 15 January at 11am at the St. Aloysius Church, 18 Giddings Avenue Cronulla. The Church is quite close to Cronulla Railway station.
