Libbie was born in Enterprise, Mississippi on May 30, 1924 to Joseph and Beatrice Wier. She grew up in Gautier, Mississippi and spent much of her life in her beloved home on Oak Street that she filled with family heirlooms and beautiful antique furniture. She loved sharing stories of travelling and living abroad in Trinidad, Germany, and Japan when her husband, David Loper, was in the Navy.
In 2005, she moved to Florida to be near her grandsons. She was especially close with nephew Warren Loper of Pascagoula, Mississippi, who also visited her in Florida. She loved gardening, home decorating, and was talented with many home crafts. She made many cherished tapestries, afghans, and quilts for her loved ones. She also loved flowers, and for many years she arranged the flowers for the Sunday morning services at First Baptist Church of Gautier. The family would like to thank Beth Ann Meyer and the wonderful caregivers of Boppa’s Home in Palm Bay, Florida for the loving care they provided in Libbie’s final years.
A service will be held at 10am, Saturday, Sept. 30 at Pinecrest Cemetery in Gautier, Mississippi. Memorial donations may be made to First Baptist Church of Gautier at 325 De La Pointe Dr., Gautier, MS 39553.
