Libby had a huge heart that was full of love and compassion. She was a very giving and caring individual who loved to live life. She was an avid reader and treasured any time she could visit the beach where she adored the sand and relaxing while watching the waves. She enjoyed laying in the sun especially at the beach or her pop’s pond in Troy Township. Most important to Libby was her family, particularly her son Eli, whom she loved endlessly.
