Obituary for LIBO

Published in the Albuquerque Journal on Sunday August 15, 2004

Gina Martha Libo rests in peace after a long, brave struggle on August 11, 2004 in Las Cruces, NM. Born in Ann Arbor, MI on June 20, 1952, she was the daughter of Dr. Lester Libo of Albuquerque and the late Betty Laws Libo of Santa Fe. After graduating from Sandia Prep in Albuquerque, she received her Bachelors and Masters degrees in Nursing at the University of New Mexico. Gina received her Ph.D. in Business Administration at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces in 1996. She was on the faculty at NMSU College of Nursing. She is survived by her father and his wife, Dr. Mary Ann Conley; her three children, Maggie, Hannah, and Sam Feil and their father, Dr. Paul Feil, friend and former husband of many years. Gina will also be missed by her brother, Victor Libo and his wife, Dedee; and her sisters, Felicia and Lesley Libo; as well as nieces, Emily and Jessica; and nephews, Thomas and Justin. Gina will live in the hearts of her soul sisters, Ellen Goldsmith, Anna Schreiber, and Simy Allan. Her love for life is reflected by her many interests and activities, ranging from past presidency of Temple Beth El and its Sisterhood in Las Cruces, to being a Girl Scout leader, soccer mom, and cat enthusiast. In celebration of her life, services will be held at Grahams Mortuary in Las Cruces on Sunday, August 15, 2004 at 10:00 a.m., followed by interment at Masonic Cemetery. In honor of Gina, who loved bright colors, colorful garb at the service is requested. The family would like to thank Mesilla Valley Hospice. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Sandia Prep School at 532 Osuna Road, NE, Albuquerque, NM 87113, UNM College of Nursing at 700 Lomas Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87131, or any appropriate fund.
