Our loving friend, Liz Gibson, passed away peacefully Saturday, Feb. 23, 2008, at her home in Tooele. She was born April 18, 1967, in New Mexico, to Richard and Dolores Gibson. Liz graduated from Tooele High School in 1985 and continued her education at Utah State University where she received a bachelor's degree in political science and art. After working in Washington D.C. as a lobbyist, Liz returned to Tooele and married Tony Carreau. Liz was a very genuine person who had such a tender heart, one who would do anything for a friend. She loved animals and could never turn away a homeless pet. Her greatest talent was her quick wit, which was no match for even her closest friends. Her wit brought laughter to many. We will miss her jokes and especially her gift of writing funny songs and poems about her family and friends. Her children, Amanda and Davy, were her greatest treasures. She was a mother and a playmate for them. She loved to laugh and was a kid at heart. Neglecting the laundry, Liz was often spotted playing Guitar Hero and other games with her children. Their home was one giant playground and the garage, a large animal sanctuary. She clearly enjoyed living and making those around her feel happy. She was an extremely caring person, and will be sadly missed by all.
Liz is survived by her husband, Tony Carreau; children, Amanda and Davy; parents, Richard and Dolores Gibson; sisters, Kelly Sutherland (Travis) and Kathy Christiansen (Gregory); nieces and nephews, Elise Sutherland, Regan, Bethany, and Henry Christiansen.
On this tragic occasion, family and friends will gather for a memorial service on Thursday, Feb. 28, 2008, at 7 p.m. The service will be held in Tooele at the St. Marguerite's Catholic Church on the corner of Seventh East and Vine Street.
