Obituary

Hilda Irene Gribble was born on August 19, 1928 in Mannington, West Virginia. She went to be with her best friend, Jesus, on April 29, 2020 in her home in Ashland, Ohio at the age of 91.
She was preceded in death by her husband Jerry Gribble on August 10, 1992 and her brother Jack Thomas.
She is survived by and will be greatly missed by her son, James A. (Anita) Gribble and her daughter, Janet Gribble Hart, both of Morganton, N.C., Her stepson, John R. (Brenda) Gribble and stepdaughter, Betty A. Jackson, both of Grafton, W. VA; 10 grandchildren: 14 great grandchildren and 2 great great-grandchildren.
Hilda and her husband moved to Wellington, OH. From Waynesburg, PA. in 1952 where they raised, trained and raced Standard Bred Horses and owned and operated W.H. Auto Repair.
Hilda taught the kindergarten class at Wellington Methodist Church where she was a member until she moved to Ashland in 1977. She later became a member of the Ashland Church of the Nazarene where she was very active in the Missionary Society, worked in the Nursery and taught the “Bullfrogs and Butterflies” class. She cleaned the church weekly for 14 years until the retirement of Pastor Ivan and Loretta Beatty.
In 1985 she went to work as a housekeeper for Brethren Care, retiring after 20 years due to severe health issues.
She started a Bible Study in 2006 that met weekly in her home. She sadly leaves behind her Bible Study group, made up of many great friends and their teacher Lois Shilliday, her dearest friend.
She loved to cook and bake, creating many of her own recipes which she enjoyed serving to her “Bible Study Girls”.
She spent many hours daily reading her Bible and praying for those in need. She also prayed for beloved family and friends, and all the lost, that they would find Jesus as their savior and join her one day in her heavenly home.
She eagerly awaited the glorious day when God would call her home and what a glorious day it was.
Because of current social distancing guidelines, a Celebration of Life Service will be held at a later time at the Ashland Church of the Nazarene. Graveside services will take place Friday, May 1, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. at the Ashland Cemetery with Pastor Dave Langdon officiating. The family suggests that memorial contributions may be made to the Missionary Society at the Ashland Church of the Nazarene, 1196 Twp. Rd. 1506, Ashland, Ohio 44805.

Denbow-Gasche Funeral Home & Crematory assisted the family with the arrangements.

To the family of Hilda , please accept my sincerest condolences on her passing . As the Administrator of Brethren Care I had the honor of working with Hilda for many years . Hilda was not just an employee but a friend . Our paths would cross frequently in her efforts to keep everything clean . It was rare for me to see her without her beautiful smile . Hilda was one of the hardest working ladies in the housekeeping department and would not hesitate to help others if needed . Heaven has gained a wonderful lady . God Bless .
