Ella Maude LibbeyJuly 6, 1923 ~ August 22, 2019 (age 96)
Ella Maude Libbey began her life of Christian Ministry as a young person in The Santa Barbara Corps of The Salvation Army, then for more than eighty years she was the super energetic Trombonist of The Libbey Family Band and preached The Gospel of Jesus Christ as an ordained minister of The International Gospel League.
She won many souls for Jesus, blessed multitudes with her ministry of love and “wowed” audiences of the world over when she threw back her head and used God’s gift of musical talent to play the trombone with one hand and an accordion with the other.
After pouring out her last drop of life ministering to others, Maude was promoted to Glory at 7:01 am on August 22, 2019. We miss her but we know she is safe in heaven with Jesus now. Praise the Lord!
Ella is survived by her sister, Esther Duke of Cabazon, CA; brothers, Stanley and Donald Libbey of Cabazon, CA; cousin, Dorothy Northenscold; sister-in-law, Aida Libbey and niece, Mary Libbey
Ella was preceded in death by parents, Guy and Edna Libbey, brothers, Guy Rowland and Loren and sisters, Edna and Connie.
