In memory of
Carolyn Joy Gibbons
Carolyn Joy Gibbons Joy Gibbons passed away peacefully at her Hilton Head home October 11, 2016. Joy was born in Springfield, Illinois where she lived until her move to New York City to pursue a dance career. She danced with the Radio City Rockettes and also served as its Alumnae President. In New York, she met and married her husband Thomas Gibbons. They were blessed with 50 years together enjoying children and grandchildren, along with numerous friends. Their passion for golf and skiing afforded them many travel adventures around the world. Although her legal name was Carolyn, she began and ended her life being called Joy, which embodied her spirit. Joy leaves behind daughters Carol Berg (John), Kelly Hickey (Mike), Alane Gaspari as well as six beloved grandchildren: Dakota, Annika, Grant, Guy, Reilly and Jack. There will be a celebration of life at a future date. To honor her joyous and generous soul we ask that donations be made to Hospice Care of the Lowcountry, PO Box 3827, Bluffton, SC, 29910.
