The late Diana E. Gibbs

Diana Evelyn Gibbs (Dee Dee, Diane), 73, of Carrollton, passed away Tuesday, May 26, 2020, with her family by her side. 

Born Sept. 9, 1946, in Delhi, LA, she was a daughter of Evelyn Gibbs and L.T. Gibbs. 

Diana graduated from Bell Gardens High School. She spent a majority of her life being a caregiver to her children, husband, grandchildren and so many others. She was kind, warm hearted and a giving woman. Diana loved to play Bingo and “The Casino.” She was an extremely strong woman. No matter what came her way, she persevered to the best of her ability. She lost her life to a very aggressive, small cell lung cancer. 

She was married Robert C. Scherzer, who is deceased, in 1964. After divorce, she married Carl Trego (deceased) many years later. 

She is survived by daughters, Derlene (Randy) Bringle and Litonya (Joseph) Garner; a daughter-in-law, Kristin Gibbs; 15 grandchildren; 11 great grandchildren; a brother Robert Gibbs; and many other family members. 

She was preceded in death by her son, Thomas Gibbs in 2004; a daughter, Christina Scherzer in 2010; a brother, Jerry Gibbs; a sister Christine Irwin; and her parents. 

In light of social distancing required, there will be no formal services. A small, intimate “Celebration of Life” for Diana will be held for family and close friends. The family insists people make donations to Lung Cancer Research in lieu of sending flowers.
