Lydia Allene Dwire Gipson was born May 20, 1930 and passed on January 18, 2018 in Rock Springs, Wyoming. Lydia was born and raised on Garfield Creek near New Castle, Colorado and was a country girl through and through. She especially loved her cows and outdoor yard-work. Lydia spent the majority of her life in the vicinity of New Castle, Colorado. She was well known for her flowers gardens as well as her lemon meringue pie. She was very devoted to her five children and loved her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was very active in getting a recreation program started for children in Newcastle. For about 26 years, her Dwire Family and Friends picnics brought the community and family together from coast to coast. Another important issue was that each of her children has a personal relationship with God. She married Paul T. Gipson in 1968 after divorcing her first husband, Perry Rodreick.
