Mrs. Elizabeth Coleman "Libby" Tobin
08/24/1958 - 09/14/2023
Libby lived a beautiful, blessed, and full life. Born to John and
Polly Coleman, she spent her youth in South Hill, Virgina. Upon
graduation from Brunswick Academy, she attended Louisburg College and
graduated from University of North Carolina at Wilmington. She spent
many years lovingly teaching kindergarten students in Holly Ridge,
North Carolina. In 1986 Libby and Brad were married, and for more than 37 years, she
provided a healthy, joyful, safe, and loving home for Brad, Brett, and
Carter in Wilmington, North Carolina, Louisville, Kentucky, Chagrin
Falls, Ohio, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and New York City. Libby's greatest joy was her family; husband, Brad, son, Brett and his wife, Ali, daughter, Carter and her husband, Nick. Grandson Henry, Granddaughter Ava, and grandchildren yet to come will know their loving grandmother through stories. She is also survived by her two sisters: Mary Ann Lacy and Frances Ellen Doyle and her brother, John D. Coleman. While called by God to her eternal home before we were ready, Libby leaves family and friends whose lives she touched and filled with love, support, and kindness. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions be made to Trust for Public Land’s Community Schoolyards program in Philadelphia, in memory of Elizabeth Tobin for the creation of an outdoor classroom. Donations can be made online at www.tpl.org/pennsylvania or mailed to: Trust for Public Land, 1608 Walnut Street, Suite 302, Philadelphia, PA 19103. A graveside service will be conducted on Friday September 22nd at 2:00 P.M. in Oakwood Cemetery, South Hill, Virginia. Online condolences may be made through our website, www.crowderhitecrews.com. Crowder-Hite-Crews Funeral Home and Crematory is serving the Tobin family.
