Elizabeth Gibby Osborne ’50

Published in May 12, 2004, issue

Lib/Liz/E. J. died Jan. 20, 2004. She was a six-year cancer survivor, and her host of friends marveled at her positive spirit and energy.

A 1952 graduate of Goucher College, she became a master teacher during nearly 30 years at Chapin School in Princeton.

Her Princeton heritage spanned three centuries. Her grandfather was a Princeton mayor; her father was Edgar Marsh Gibby 1899. Liz served Old Nassau as chair of the Class Associates Committee, as In Memoriam Chair, and as a member of the AG Committee and the Alumni Council committees on Reunions and on class affairs. She was honored at Reunions 2000 with the Alumni Council Award for Service to Princeton, and a citation by the Class of '50 for service to '50 and to Princeton.

Known for her custom-crafted cards, Liz was also a frequent and effective communicator working for Old Nassau by phone and mail. Her smile was infectious. Her trademark was a tiger pin worn on her shoulder. Widely loved and appreciated, she is fondly remembered by the many whose lives she touched.

Predeceased by her elder son, Alexander M. Robinson, Liz is survived by her son, Bruce M. Robinson; a brother, Robert Budd Gibby, president of '36; her husband, William H. Osborne III '50; and his three children, their spouses, and children.
