Rayna Loth Gibbs of Euless, TX, passed away on March 24, 2017, and entered Heaven’s rest after a life of faithful and loving service to her Lord and to everyone she encountered. She is survived by David Gibbs, her beloved husband of 48 years; her sister Karen (Don) Allen of Cortland, OH; Brian and Mary Lou Gibbs of Decatur, TX, and Cynthia and Amy Gibbs of Keller, TX. Rayna also adored and was adored by scores of cousins, nieces, and nephews living all around the country. A celebration of her life will be held on March 28 at Grace Bible Church at 1450 Oak Hill Road, 76112, in Forth Worth. Visitation at the church will begin at 6:00 pm, followed immediately by a memorial service.

Rayna was born on February 6, 1949, in Bay Village, OH, to Wayne and Helene Loth, the second of four children that included Diane, Karen, and Wayne Jr. She graduated from Austintown Fitch High School in Austintown, OH, in 1967, and she and Dave were married on August 9, 1969. The happy couple moved to Chicago in 1974, where they lived for four years and Rayna worked at the headquarters of Montgomery Ward’s. She transferred to a facility in Fort Worth when they relocated to Texas. Subsequently, she joined the Boy Scouts of America National Council in Irving and was proud to work for such a worthwhile organization until she retired.

In addition to her fulfilling career with Boy Scouts, Rayna took great joy in her years of faithful attendance at the Grace Bible Church and working with the Mid-Cities Christian Women’s Connection. She also took two mission trips that allowed her to share God’s love and her compassion with the people of Guatemala. Rayna was blessed by an extended Christian family, former coworkers, and other faithful friends that she joyfully served with a friendly smile, loving care, and Godly devotion. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
