Cheryl Gibson Buckley

Cheryl Gibson Buckley left us unexpectedly on Monday, September 24, 2017, at the age of 61. She was born in New Orleans, Louisiana on October 7, 1955, to Helen Datusch and Isiah Gibson. Although she spent much of her young life residing in Louisiana she made her home in Texas. She lived in Vidor, Texas with her husband of twenty-four years, Ron Buckley along with their two dogs Chip and Molly, which she loved dearly. Cheryl was someone who got better with age, who loved coffee, grandkids and Christmas. She was giving and loyal whether or not you deserved it, and offered forgiveness even if you didn’t ask. She didn’t share her feelings easily but wore them on her sleeve. She was a little opinionated, a bit of a crybaby, and a lot of a wimp, but she sure loved her life and all the people in it. If you knew her at all you knew that she believed that blood didn’t make you family.
