I was born on October 3, 1960 to JT and Melcena (Horn) Skaggs in Wichita, Kansas. I have one sibling, an older brother, Terry Lynn Skaggs born on August 7, 1958.
My father worked as a bus mechanic at Continental Trailways Bus Company in Wichita at the time of my birth. My parents moved back to their hometown of Vian, OK when I was still pre-school age. We lived in the Blackgum community.
I attended school at Vian and graduated high school there in 1978. In May 1982, I graduated from Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, OK with a bachelors degree in accounting.
I began working in June 1982 at Phillips Petroleum Company in Bartlesville, OK. The company merged with Conoco in 2002 and is now known as ConocoPhillips.
I met my husband, Carl Glen Gibson, while attending college at Northeastern State University. We married on March 16, 1991 and have three children. We made our home in Nowata, OK.

Hope you enjoy WikiTree as much as I have. You never know when you will find a lost family member or ancestor. Or maybe find a hidden family secret about an ancestor. Genealogy to me is like being a detective looking for clues into the past.
