Sherrie Platt Gibson, 79, of Statesville, North Carolina, passed away on Feb. 6 at her residence.

She was born on July 6, 1940, in New Haven, to the late Thomas Harvey Platt and Mary Ellen Wilcox Platt. She graduated with honors from George School in Middletown Township, Pennsylvania, and attended the University of Connecticut. Mrs. Gibson was an employee of the US Postal Service for 36 years in Madison, before retiring and moving to Statesville to be closer to family.

She was an avid and passionate traveler; she walked the Great Wall of China, snorkeled the Great Barrier Reef, and sailed around the elusive Cape Horn. With trips to six continents, Sherrie hadn’t been everywhere but it was on her list. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband Frank Gibson; and sister Mary Ellen “Polly” Purrington.

She is survived by her children Kim Cowart (Peter), Brooke Sypher (Donald), and Douglas Bavin (Patti); grandchildren Camille Cowart, Josh Cashman (Courtney), Molly Cashman, and Casandra and Samantha Bavin; and four great-grandchildren with one on the way.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, Feb. 22 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the Cowart’s home. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Iredell County Animal Services & Control, 430 Bristol Dr., Statesville, NC 28677, or Hospice & Palliative Care of Iredell County, 2347 Simonton Rd., Statesville, NC 28625.

The family would like to give a special thank you to hospice nurse Sandie Ellis for all her loving care.

Cavin-Cook Funeral Home & Crematory, Mooresville, is serving the Gibson family. Condolences may be made to the family at
