Sister Deborah Kay Gibbs, passed away in her home at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2001 after a two year battle with cancer. She fought a good Christian fight, her battle cry being
V-I-C-T-O-R-Y!! Claiming that Victory many times, over Sin, adversity, and disease. Being plagued by many different ailments over the years she claimed healing of every one from Colitis, to Multiple Sclerosis. Having the grace to bear her burden, and Faith in God. She fully expected the Lord to heal her of the Cancer she had valiantly fought for two long years. However this time it was not to be. Her race being run she was called home, where she claimed her final Victory and Eternal Reward. Her shouts of Glory, and Halleluiah can be heard by the Angels now, as she praises God for eternity
