Gibney, Charlotte E.

Longtime Registered Nurse Had A Great Love For Bingo And Poker

Friday, January 21, 2022

Charlotte E. Gibney, 94, of Chattanooga, Tennessee, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 at NHC Healthcare of Chattanooga.

 

Charlotte was born on Dec. 13, 1927, to the late Leonard and Helen Funk of Edgewood, Iowa. 

 

Charlotte leaves her memories to daughter, Sharon Hutsell; sons Steven Gibney (Pam) and John Sheldon Gibney; Grandchildren Heather Hershberger, Sarah Gibney and Holly Hutsell; three great-grandchildren, Maxwell, Phoenix and Fox Hershberger.

 

Charlotte graduated from nursing school in Dubuque, Iowa, and started her career as a registered nurse. She was a nurse in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, until moving to El Paso, Texas, in 1976 where she continued her nursing career until retiring at age 65. Charlotte then moved to Chattanooga. She even asked her daughter for permission to move here. Did she actually think she would say no?!! Looking after Charlotte for the last 29 years was Sharon’s greatest joy. 

 

In her retirement years, Charlotte lived for traveling, volunteering at Ladies of Charity, and attending numerous events with her loyal friends. She was always a woman on the move.

 

After moving to The Terrace at Mountain Creek, she took up playing bingo and poker. She so enjoyed poker that one day she had injured her hand, and I had to beg her to stop playing, so I could take her to the medical facility for treatment. She was fiercely independent to say the least.

Charlotte continued her love for bingo after moving to Morning Pointe of Hixson in August 2021. A special thanks to all the employees there who made Charlotte’s stay pleasant.

 

Charlotte always took extreme pride in her appearance. She was the ultimate fashion plate, and God forbid that she would ever be seen without her lipstick!! :)

 

Appreciative thanks to Dr. Jack McCallie. Dr. Sharon Farber, Dr. Lisa Wamack, Dr. William Warren, and Dr. Lynn Floyd for their outstanding care.

 

Thanks also to her longtime hairdresser Jimmy Pickett at JJ and Friends in Red Bank and to the audiologists at Johnson Audiology in Hixson.

 

A huge thanks to the entire staff at the Terrace at Mountain Creek for all the terrific care during her five-year stay there. So many wonderful memories were made.

 

Mrs. Gibney has been taken to Leonard – Muller Funeral Home in Edgewood, Iowa. 

 

A graveside service will be held at Saint Marks Catholic Cemetery in Edgewood, Iowa, at a later date when the weather cooperates.

 

Local arrangements are by Hamilton Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 4506 Hixson Pike, 423 531-3975.
