Elizabeth Burch Gibson Trevino

Elizabeth Burch Gibson Trevino, 78, of Santa Fe, received her Angel wings from King David on Friday, December 8th. She was born in May 1945 to the late Audrey Louise Smith and Charles Wilford Gibson, Jr. in LaMarque, TX. She was preceded in death by her parents and sister Anne Louise Gibson Martin.

Beth was a member of the credentialing class of Registered Nurses for Alvin Community College in 1965. She worked for numerous facilities including Houston and Galveston County Memorial Hospitals.

Her most memorable employee included nursing and teaching English to the Mimbari during the years she lived in Africa as a missionary. Beth earned her degree in Bible from Trinity Christian College in Chicago.  She utilized her knowledge during her last official job teaching history at Arcadia First Baptist Christian School and during fellowship with the wonderful ladies of the bible study group, the Chickadees, sharing their love of God.

Beth is survived by her daughter Mary Elizabeth Tillman Escamilla, husband George, and grandsons Brandon and Devin. Husband Guadalupe Trevino, as well as several nieces, nephews, and cousins share in the grief of her passing.
