In Memory of Rylan David James Gibson
October 17, 2015 – July 18th, 2022
Rylan David James Gibson, 6, of Hubbell, peacefully went home to be with the Lord on Monday, July 18th, 2022, surrounded by his loving family. Rylan was born in Hancock on October 17, 2015, to John and Kendra (Harry) Gibson.
Rylan was a spunky boy who loved making people laugh. He enjoyed camping with his entire family, cruising around with his brother in his fully charged John Deere tractor, relaxing in hot tubs, eating cheese curds and hanging out with his special friends from downstate, Jerry and Lisa Howell and Noah Marr. Rylan also loved all things “Super Heroes”. He proved to be the bravest super hero of them all, a true inspiration to those around him. He may have been met with many challenges but never complained and boldly faced every obstacle. He taught us all how to be courageous! Rylan’s life was cut short, but the impression he left on the lives of others will never be forgotten.
Rylan is survived by his Mother, Kendra Gibson, Father, John Gibson, Sisters Amelia (15) and Caedence (10) and brothers, Landon (13) and Jase (8). Rylan is also survived by great-grandmother Josephine Zubiena of Calumet, Great-grandparents Richard & Donna Donovan of Lower Michigan, grandparents Patrick and Lucille Gibson of Mohawk, David and Kathryn Wanhala of Hancock and Brian Harry of Baltic. He is also survived by numerous aunts and uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his grandma, Melinda Donovan (Harry) of Ripley.

In Memory of Ainsley Rose Kargela
June 11, 2010 – July 22, 2018
Northwoods Airlifeline volunteers gave us their time, to coordinate, to fly. This gave us time to be a family, for Ainsley to be a student, a dancer, a hockey player, a sister. Northwoods Airlifeline gave our family the most important gift… TIME… and they gave their time for us.
In Memory of Jolene Treml
January 5, 2000 – December 30, 2017
Jolene Treml died tragically in a car accident on Dec. 30th, 2017. Jolene planned on going to college after High School Graduation to pursue a nursing career. It was her desire to help others that led Jolene to speak often with her parents Jeff and Mary Treml about the great services Northwoods Airlifeline provides to the area.
Upon Jolene’s passing her parents made a very generous donation in Jolene’s name. It’s donations like this that allows Northwoods Airlifeline to do what they do.
