She is survived by her sister Phyllis Johnson, brothers Pete Baxter, Mark (Mindy) Baxter, her children Phyllis and James Robbins (Maryland), Michele and Dave Caron (Branford), Kelley and Sean Tanner (Georgia), Kiera and Justin Weinstein (West Haven), Lacey and Jake Witkowsky (Branford). Eight Grandchildren Sean Robbins, Leah Burbridge, Chelsea Robbins, Alyssa Caron, DJ Caron, Taylor Poulin, Logan Tanner, and Alexis Tanner. Four great-grandchildren Jax, Grace, Hudson & Greyson. She is also survived by a abundance of cousins, nieces, nephews, family & friends.
Kibby was a devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, nana, great nana, and friend. She lived her life helping others and enjoyed sitting on her porch reminiscing, smoking, and drinking her coffee. She was the neighborhood babysitter and foster mother to many children who needed a soft landing. Her home was always full and everyone was welcome. She loved to travel with her husband and enjoyed her summers in the OBX with the family. We find a sense of peace knowing she is reunited with her husband Dennis which is something she looked forward to since he passed 14 years ago.
She will forever be a part of our daily life, always a part of our conversations, holidays, and decision making. We will always ask ourselves what would mom do in this situation? Her recipes will be a family tradition and be passed down for generations to come. You will forever be in our thoughts, prayers and in our hearts until we see you again. We love you to the moon and back. Burial will be private.
All are welcome to join us for a celebration of life gathering on Saturday April 10th at 12:00 pm at the home of Michele & Dave Caron
