Karon Gibson-Mueller, 69, of Ipswich, MA (formerly of Hamilton, MA and Cincinnati, OH) passed peacefully on February, 22,2022 after a short but progressive illness.

Karon lived in many places, but most frequently talked about her time in Cincinnati and St. Croix. She remembered fondly her time at Bethany School for Girls in Cincinnati (where her spark for service in the Episcopal Church was ignited) and Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School (where she was an athlete and graduate). Karon graduated from Brown University with a degree in Sociology and Tufts University with a Masters in Education. She began teaching in Stoneham Public Schools soon after graduation. Karon taught for over 35 years in Stoneham before completing her career in the Cambridge Public School System. 

Karon was a dedicated daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt, cousin and Oma. She is survived by her mother Juanita Wallace Jackson and second dad John Jackson, as well as stepmother Evelyn Gibson; her husband Rick, daughters Elisabeth Harris and Eva Perry, and their spouses Kevin and Dylan; her bonus daughters Levonne Coughlin and Lauren Mueller, their spouses Tom and Elizabeth; her treasured grandchildren Tristen, Frankie, Owen, Wyatt and Logan. She is also survived by her brother Blaine Gibson and his family, sister Ila Vance and her family, and many extended family members she cherished. She joins her father Winston Gibson, among other beloved family members.
