Olivia “Libby” Pearson

Olivia “Libby” Pearson of Gainesville, Fl. passed away peacefully at home at the age of 92.

Born in Lawrenceburg, TN, Libby spent most of her adult life in Gainesville with her husband, Larry Pearson and their two daughters. Libby was deeply devoted to her family and friends and to God. She was an accomplished businesswoman, working more than 40 years in the banking industry and after many years earned her Associate’s Degree. She was promoted as one of the first female banking officials in the area and served as Auditor for many years.

Libby was preceded in death by her husband Larry Pearson, her parents and her two brothers. She is survived by her two daughters: Anita Pearson and Teresa Guthrie and her beloved son in law Richard Guthrie; by many cousins and nieces/nephews. She felt blessed to often spend time with family and friends.

Due to the impacts of Covid the family will delay a Memorial Service until 2022 when everyone can be together for hugs, tears, laughs, and food. The family requests that donations be made in Libby’s memory to the Pine Grove Baptist Church in Gainesville, through their website at: mypinegrovebaptist.org.

Arrangements are under the care of Milam Funeral and Cremation Services, 311 South Main Street, Gainesville, FL 32601, 352-376-5361.
