We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Atwater Location
Mathilda jane Hibdon was born January 5, 1939 to Carl and Minnie Nightengale in Fredonia, Kansas.
She gained her wings May 31, 2022.
Her early years were spent in Kansas before the family moved to California. There, she met and married our father on May 29, 1956. That union brought one daughter and two sons.
She loved keeping a home and raising her children. She enjoyed cooking, baking, sewing and keeping up a garden. In fact, dad once said that, “For someone who would burn water when we first married, she turned out to be a great cook!”
Mom found her faith and love for God again at the age of 21, and was re-accepted into the Church of God in Christ Mennonite.
She always had a quite demeanor about her, but when she had something to say, she held nothing back! Mom was involved in her church in her younger adult years and fulfilled her dreams of becoming a teacher, for the most part, as she was a Sunday School and Vacation Bible teacher. She would also go to Grace Home and read to the residents.
Her survivors include; daughter Lynette Pearson (Jim), son Bill Hibdon (Leah) all of Delhi, CA. Her grandsons, Billy Hibdon (Melissa) of Dos Palos, step-grandson Matthew Pearson of Fremont, CA. Also, five great-grandsons; Michael, Julius, Nicholas, Joseph and Francisco of Dos Palos. Other’s to share her memory include; brother’s, Vernon and Ivan both of Delhi, CA and sisters, Susan Kohen of Livingston, CA Bertha Nightengale of Delhi, CA and Frances Kohen of Montezuma, Kansas.
She is preceded in death by her parents, husband, one son, four brothers, three sisters, several brothers and sisters in law plus nieces and nephews.
Mom will be forever loved and missed. She has found the peace she so longed for.
Services will be held at 9:30AM on Tuesday June 14, 2022 at the Church of God in Christ Mennonite, 13483 Peach Avenue, Livingston.
