Rubie Lene Gatson Gipson left to be with her Savior on Monday, September 21, 2020. She was the child of Ebbie and Tillie Gatson born in Newton, TX. on June 25, 1939. She married Sidney Jack Gipson. She was mother to nine children, Sidnetha Cooper, Reginald Gipson, Valerie Gipson, Ona Mae Gallien, Melanie Becerril, Anthony LaPointe-Gipson, Byron Gipson, Stephanie Scallan, and Rubinell Gipson-Davis. She has approximately 25 grandchildren and a host of great-grandchildren. She is survived by two brothers; Elzie Gatson and Edward Gatson (Marlene Gatson). She was preceded in death by sisters; Beatrice Clayton, Versie Thompson, Bernadine Cleaver, Annie Leatrice Thomas, Jetty Pryor, Maxine Washington, Jeanette Woods; and brother, Ebbie Gatson.

Her parents came together and created a tender soul that lived life to its fullest. Rubie Gipson knew how to make you laugh and she also knew how to tell you what was on her mind. She didn’t hold back any part of herself. She brought nine children up alone and she brought them up strong. When she came into a room, every face would light up with a smile. You knew you were about to have fun. She loved to dance her crazy dances and color with her grandchildren when they were young. When you came to her house she would sneak and call everybody, because she loved to have her family around her. This family has had so many adventures together and now the glue that kept us together is gone. It’s now up to each one of us to put forth the effort to reach back and pick the other up on our bad days; encouraging each other and keeping her memory alive, because she just went over the rainbow. Every time a memory comes to you it should bring a smile with it. She wanted her life to be celebrated not mourned.

Love is the glue, use it.
