Despite her health conditions she was always an out-going “character and a half” making her loss devastating.

She passed away on Thursday, April 28 with her death being ruled as “unexplained” at this time.

It comes after Kerry’s father suddenly passed away in 2020 from a heart condition, with her family now saying she is “back in her dad's arms”.

Loved one Nicole Norman told the Glasgow Times: “Kerry was a character and a half, she was always full of dramatics and a girly girl.

“She loved handbags, nail polishes, and make-up, she was forever pinching them off anyone she could.

“Kerry loved her family loads and kept them on their toes with her antics.

“Her death was sudden and at this moment is unexplained, they think it’s most likely epilepsy-related.

“Kerry’s presence was felt by anyone she was around and the fact she is gone has left a huge hole in the family no one could even come close to filling.”

A Gofundme has been set up to raise funds for Kerry’s funeral to give her “the send-off she deserves”.



The page reads: “There’s so much we could say about Kerry Gibbons.

“Out-going, well loved, well known, drama Queen, quite the character and always full of mischief.

“But her sudden and tragic death at the age of 27 was one thing the family never imagined they’d have to say.

“We are raising funds in the hope we can give Kerry the send off she deserves, and the one we know she’d want for her final journey back to her dad's arms.

“Rest in Peace Kerry Gibbons.”
