1945 Betsey 2021

Betsey Gibson

June 21, 1945 — June 22, 2021

Betsey Carole (Bradford) Gibson of Frederick, MD passed away on June 22, 2021 surrounded by the love of her family and friends.
Betsey was born in Somerset, PA on June 21, 1945, the daughter of the late Betty B. and Arthur W. Bradford.

Betsey spent her early years in Altoona, Pa.  Upon her marriage to Donald Gibson in 1965 she moved to Maryland.
Betsey spent many years working in the banking industry, and later as Vice President of PJ Higgins & Associates , a consulting/lobbying firm.
Her generous spirit lives on in her daughter, Stephanie Gibson Tognetti (Mark) of Frederick and her son, Chad E. Gibson of Atlanta, GA. She will be deeply missed by her beloved grandchildren, Jake and Nicole Tognetti, and many nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her brother, William Walker Bradford and her sister-in-law Nancy Gibson.
When she wasn’t sitting in the stands or audience for one of Jake or Nicole’s events, Betsey was enjoying her retirement, traveling with the Magoo’s “A Team” to destinations near and far. She loved her wine, shopping (she was the most generous gift-giver), fashion and lamenting the Burgundy and Gold on Sundays.  Everyone who knew her was better for it and that is the truest of legacies.
In accordance with her wishes, the family will receive friends from 1:00pm to 3:00pm on Monday, June 28, 2021 at Stauffer Funeral Home, 1621 Opossumtown Pike in Frederick, MD. Interment will be private. Donations in Betsey’s memory can be made to the Kline Hospice House, 7000 Kimmel Road, Mt. Airy, MD 21771.
The family wishes to extend heartfelt gratitude to the staff at the James Stockman Cancer Institute & the Kline Hospice House, and to the many friends and family who walked with her on her final journey.
