March 5, 1947 - August 18, 2009
Kilby and John were "The Brother & Sister Sales Team" for 17 years. It was with great sadness that we lost her to Mantle Cell Lymphoma in the summer of 2009. Kilby will be forever remembered by her family (including cats and dogs) as well as the many friends she made over the course of her career. She was well known for her indefatigable spirit, great sense of humour, and unfailing ability to host a great party.
The incidence of this group of cancers is rising faster than any other common cancer seen in North America and in fact, has been doubling every 20 years for more than 70 years. Today, lymphoid cancers are the fourth most common cancers diagnosed in both men and women. Those interested in making a financial contribution to the fight against lymphoma are invited to visit the Kilby Gibson Endowment Fund for Lymphoid Cancer Research here.
