June 16, 1939 ~ June 12, 2009
Jimmie Sue Gibson Alexander, age 69, passed away Friday morning, June 12, 2009 at her home in San Antonio after a battle with cancer. We rejoice with her that she has gone on to be with the Lord, where she so longed to be. She was born in Tyler, Texas on June 16, 1939. She is survived by her husband, Thomas Earl Alexander, 75, of San Antonio and six children: Thomas Jr., San Antonio; Johnny, San Antonio; Lisa Beck, Bandera, TX; Randy, San Antonio; Bryan, Tarpley, TX; and Carol Blentlinger, San Antonio; 16 grandchildren, and 12 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by 2 brothers, Don and James Gibson, both of Fort Worth, and a sister Dorothy Mayes, of Fort Worth. She was preceded in death by one grandson. "But God will redeem my soul from the power of death; for He will receive me." Psalm 49:15 Having raised six children, some might think that her love was divided by six, but in reality it was multiplied by six. And it was multiplied over again by the number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren that she was blessed with. Mom had a special way of making every child think he or she was her favorite, and the same was true for her grandchildren, who affectionately called her "Granny." She loved to sing and until recently, was an active participant in her church's praise team. She loved her church, the Western Heritage Cowboy Church in Pipe Creek, and had many friends there that loved her. We left behind will miss her tremendously, but we know that where she is, the party is just beginning. "This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope. The Lord's lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Thy faithfulness. 'The Lord is my portion,' says my soul, 'therefore I have hope in Him.'" Lamentations 3:21-24. A memorial service will be held at the Western Heritage Cowboy Church, 4176 FM 1283, Pipe Creek, Texas, on Monday, June 15, 2009, at 1:00 p.m. All are invited to celebrate her homegoing.
