Lyril Ann Gibbs Pisano


Lyril Ann Gibbs Pisano, beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother, passed away peacefully on Monday, Feb. 12, 2018, surrounded by her loving family.

Lyril was born March 25, 1930 in Boise, Idaho the daughter of Warren Zundel Gibbs and Delfa Ann Fadden Gibbs.  She grew up in and attended school in McCammon, Idaho, graduating from McCammon High School in 1948.  In 1949 she married Roger Johnson, also of McCammon, and five children were born to them.  Following their divorce, she married Carmine John “Mike” Pisano, of Pocatello, Idaho, and they became parents to a son.

She retired from the Union Pacific Railroad in 1991 after 38 years of employment.

Lyril’s first priority was always family, and retirement gave her more time to focus on her children and grandchildren, and then great grandchildren, to whom she was affectionately known as Gigi.  She was actively involved in the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers and also enjoyed gardening and caring for her two loving cats.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Mike Pisano; her parents; a brother, Don Leroy Gibbs; a granddaughter, Chantel Nichols Fox; and a great-grandson, Derek Javin Johnson.  She is survived by a sister, Laura Alice Amini; a brother, Warren Robert Gibbs; her six children: Pat (Dawn) Johnson, Farmington; Ann (David) Hedrick, Sparta, NC; Amy (Jerry) Nichols, Platte City, MO; Alayne (Don) Cobbley, Afton, WY; Anola Johnson, Centerville; Paul (Linda) Pisano, Bloomington, IN; as well as 16 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren.
