Obituary for Elaine Mangum (Gibbs)

Elaine Gibbs Mangum, 88, of Raleigh departed this earthly life on Monday, July 6, 2020. She was born on October 17, 1931 to the late Rufus H. and Becky Pearce Gibbs. In addition to her parents, Elaine was preceded in death by her son, Mike Mangum; her daughter, Susan Pillsbury; and her sister, Margaret G. Mitchell.

Elaine was known for her unconditional love and support for family and friends. She loved God and her Christian faith was central to her life. She loved to work and stay busy. After a career at General Electric spanning 50 years, Elaine briefly retired before going back to work for several more years with the NC Department of Revenue to keep busy and keep her mind sharp. In her spare time, she enjoyed traveling with friends and family. She was a crossword master, a voracious reader and loved keeping up with sports and talking about current world affairs. She would proudly tell you she had voted in every election since ‘old enough’, and especially loved talking about politics. She had a quick wit, and her boisterous laugh could light up a room.

Memorial service 11:00 am Friday August 7,2020 at Fairview cemetery in Franklinton

Elaine is survived by her grandchildren, Rachel Pillsbury-Duyk (Daniel), Heston Lee Pillsbury, and Mary Kate Mangum; and her brother, Charles Winston Gibbs (Ella Faye).

Charles Gibbs Jr.

I will miss Aunt Elaine very much. She always had such an upbeat personality that could bring a smile to your face and make you feel special. She love talking sports, especially if it was about those UNC Tarheels. She was an avid Tarheel fan and every Christmas I tried to give her something UNC related. I bet she accumulated quite a collection over the years. She was always so good to me and my children over the years always remembering them at Christmas and on birthdays. She was a loving person and one in which I wish we had more time to spend with. We are all going to miss her very much and as well we know that we are lucky to have had her in our lives as our Aunt.

Love You Aunt Laine,

Charles W Gibbs Jr. (Chuck) and Family.
