Joan Gibbs

June 22, 1930 — March 1, 2024

Joan Clare Gibbs, 93, of Arvada passed away on March 1, 2024. Joan was born in Fort Dodge, Iowa on June 22, 1930, where she grew up with her parents and 9 brothers and sisters. She attended Fort Dodge High School and shortly after graduation moved to Pennsylvania to live with her older sister. Joan eventually moved to Denver and that is where she met the love of her life, Guy Gibbs. Guy and Joan were married on May 31, 1958, and enjoyed 64 years of marriage.
Joan was an avid supporter of all Regis High School sports that Guy coached and could always be found at games cheering on the team. Joan had an incredible sense of wit and loved to be around people.  Joan was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Joan was also an avid and very accomplished golfer and as the story goes, always won every round when she and Guy would golf together. Joan was involved in the 18-hole Women’s Golf Group at Indian Tree and was even the Club Champion. Joan, we believe, had six holes in one in her life. Joan was also an accomplished and talented artist. Her many oil paintings have been shared with friends and family alike.
Joan was preceded in death by her husband Guy H. Gibbs, her parents and her siblings.  Joan is survived by her children Georgeann (Bob), Greg, Geoff (Lisa), Gretchen (Mike) and Genny (Eric), 14 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. Funeral Services will be private.
In lieu of flowers, those wishing to honor Joan’s life can donate to Regis Jesuit High School in her memory.
