She was born Sept. 13, 1967, in Metropolis, the daughter of Frank and Virginia “Jenny” Hyde and Andy and JoAnn Evans of Metropolis.
She was united in marriage to Randy Lynn Gibson on July 7, 1999, in Vienna. He preceded her in death on Feb. 26, 2006.
Survivors include her two sons, Karl Jordan Hyde (age 21) and Trenton Michael Hyde (age 13); a sister, Jennifer (Jack) Holloman; two brothers, Dan (Anita) Kerley and Michael (Sonia) Hyde; a niece, Tanya (Jeff) Rhodes; three nephews, Dane Kerley, Jamie (Shannon) Kerley and Jake Hyde; a great niece, Meghan Rhodes; two stepsisters, Sharon “Bambi” Eftink and Nancy Stremme; a stepbrother, Skip Evans; and her dearest friend, Joy Manning.

She was a graduate of the Vienna Grade School and a 1985 graduate of Vienna High School. She attended Shawnee Community College and received certificates in Cosmetology and Food Service, as well as being a Certified Nurses Aid. Marianne had worked in the office of the Johnson County Supervisor of Assessments. She later worked at Midwest Realty and more recently had been employed as a caregiver at the Glen Brook home in Vienna.
She loved all people and treated everyone as a friend. She lived for her sons and enjoyed watching them play sports. She was always giving of herself to anyone in need, a trait she took after her mother. At family get-togethers and birthdays she always had homemade cards that let people know they were special. Marianne loved Buck Owens Christmas music and always made Christmas a special time for all her family. She was always the first to call and sing “Happy Birthday” (never leaving out the age) to friends and family alike, regardless how she felt that day.
As a young girl, Marianne was baptized at the Vienna First Christian Church. She had a love for Jesus that showed through in how she treated all people with kindness.
