On Sept. 7, 1941, she married Clarence E. “Tommy” Thomasy. Following their marriage, they made their home in Marshfield, Mass., where they enjoyed many activities and special times.

Libby was always available for her friends and family. She enjoyed her church family and looked forward to Sunday mornings at the Covenant Orthodox Presbyterian Church in Berlin, Vt., and the Beach Baptist Church in Fort Myers Beach, Fla., and the Southwest Baptist Church in Fort Myers, Fla.
