Billie Phillips, September 24, 2020 I worked with Jinger for 23 years. I will never forget her. We had so many great laughs together. She always had a good Cole story to share with me. She was one of the kindest, most genuine people that I’ve ever met. Maridee Ryan, September 24, 2020 Super sad to hear about Coach Bibbee. I remember her cheerful demeanor and how fun she was to be around. She made elementary school so much more fun. She emailed me before I graduated in May- I’ll always hold onto that email. May she Rest In Peace. Ty Potter, September 24, 2020 Our thoughts and prayers are with Wade and the entire Bibbee family. Trisha and I are so sorry for your loss.

Kenneth Ward , September 24, 2020 Wade & Cole, I met Jinger 20 years ago when I worked at Boyd for a year. You both were everything to her! I remember hoping to be a fun mom like her. She was witty, snarky, and so very kind! Praying for your peace and comfort now and the days to come. Peace be with you. Jennifer O'Carroll, September 24, 2020 Wade, I knew Jinger primarily through the picture you painted as you spoke about her when we worked and traveled the world together, but it was a picture as vivid as life itself. That twinkle in your eye would reveal a love that was indelible and a spirit that was unbreakable. Phyllis and I hold you, Cole, and Kailyn in our hearts tonight! Godspeed to her, and peace to you and yours, David & Phyllis Crochet David Crochet, September 24, 2020 Dear Bibbee Family, With a heavy heart we are so sorry for your loss.

I'll miss having her stop by for brief outside visits as she made her walks around the Callender Lake community. To know Jinger, was to love her and I did. Heaven's gain was our earthly loss.
Sara Kesler, September 23, 2020 To Jinger's family and friends, Our thoughts and prayers are with you now and in the coming days as you celebrate the wonderful life of Jinger. Jinger was one of the first people who greeted our family when we enrolled Cameron in Kindergarten at Boyd. I will always remember her smile and comforting words to me as an older Mom of an only child. I recently reconnected during her health journey. I've been blessed and honored to have prayed with her large circle of prayer warriors. With love and sincere sympathy, Sheri Proske and family Sheri Proske, September 23, 2020 My Jinge...Tornado worker...Full of faith, kindness, love, compassion, patience...I miss you. I miss our friendship. After life took us in two different directions, we reconnected and it was as if we were neighbors all along. If you can just pick up where you left off, with a friend, I believe they're lifetime friends...that was you, Jinge. I will miss your voice, advice, and perspective. You are a mighty inspiration to legions of good people. Thank you for leading the kind of life that is so deeply revered. There is a vacancy in all of our souls, now, that we will fill to overflowing with our memories of your smiling face, your laughter and your spirit. You have made the world a better place. Can't wait to see you soon. Su McMahen, September 23, 2020 My thoughts and prayers are with the beautiful Bibbee family. I am so sorry for your loss. Peace and love from
Andrea thibodeaux, September 23, 2020 Jinger was a one of a kind woman. She was a great wife and mom. An excellent friend but most of all she was a child of God. Her sweet spirit would shine wherever she would go. It is a rare thing to have as many friends as Jinger did who loved her so much. WadeCole and Joy please know that the Glenn family is praying for you. Donna Glenn, September 23, 2020 Jinger touched so many lives and was such a light and Christian witness and will be missed so much by many people.. I enjoyed working with her and knew when I retired as Boyd Elementary PE teacher that I was leaving the students in good hands. Until we meet again! Love you, Sheila Sheila Fabre, September 22, 2020 My heart and prayers are with you guys. Jinger mentored for months so many, including my Colorado staff, while she went through her journey. Her journey made her stronger in her relationship with Christ along as making those that followed and prayed stronger in their relationship. She blessed so many by focusing on others. She has her miracle of God’s ultimate healing! Jinger is fine and whole. She is singing “If You Could See Me Now”! Please take time to listen to the song on YouTube by Mark McMillan. My prayers will be part of the strength that will continue to surround you for days to come. With love, Linda
Linda Kempfe, September 22, 2020 Our deepest condolences to Wade and family. Precious memories will keep her always in our hearts. Love you! Tom and Judy Cosper , September 22, 2020 Jinger, I had the privilege of working with you in Allen. You were a shining light on our team. You will be sorely missed. Prayers to your family. Erin Needham, September 22, 2020 Jinger was a light in this world! Everyone loved her! I had the joy of getting to know her when we worked together at Brinker. We kept in touch after she left Brinker and started working in AISD. We both lived in Allen and attended the same church, had kids in college so we kept up with each other. I wasn’t surprised at how she fought cancer, with a sense of humor and with the faith she needed to carry her to the end. She lived her life to the fullest, loving her family, friends and Lord. While her time ended with us it’s a new beginning for her as we all know she’s with her Savior and her loved ones who were waiting for her! Jingy- you are loved and will be missed! Karen Dodson , September 22, 2020 Wade, I am so sorry for your great loss. You and your family are in my prayers. Dena Brown, September 22, 2020 Wade, Cole and Joy, Jinger meant the world to both Jack and me! She will forever be in my heart! Prayers for you all. Love, Betsy Shanks
Betsy Shanks, September 22, 2020 Jinger was my sister in law. I am one of Wade's little sisters. I loved Jinger. She was so much fun to be around and even went to one of my zumba classes with me when she was visiting here in Tennessee one Thanksgiving. She loved my sons and was always so good to them. I'm going to miss her so. She was wonderful. Melanie Bibbee Palmer, September 22, 2020 Jinger is my sister-in-law and she lived a wonderful life. She had great courage and determination in anything she did; especially when she was sick. I will always carry her in my heart and I know she is in Heaven in her mansion that God has prepared for her, wearing her crown. I love you and will always miss you, Jinger!!
