Chod (Harris) Gibson, 83 of Logansport, passed away in the early morning hours of November 22, 2019 at Mckinney Place in Logansport. Chod had spent a wonderful evening enjoying Thanksgiving dinner with her family the day before.

Born on September 26, 1936 in Logansport, she is the daughter to the late James and Irene (Lew) Harris. A lifelong resident of Logansport, she attended Columbia Elementary, Riley Jr. High School and Logansport High School graduating in 1954.

After high school, she married the late Jerry Gibson and raised three children, James Gibson (Julie Vesely) of Sarasota, FL; Beth (Jon) Myers, Logansport; and Ann Gibson Gundrum who preceded in death. She is the grandmother of five grandchildren, Evan Gibson, Andrew Gibson, Owen Gibson, Kris (Jennifer) Gundrum, Megan (Roi) Gundrum; and great grandmother to three, Ford, Lena and Hazel Gundrum. She is survived by two brothers, James Harris, Logansport; Dale Harris, Fort Myers, FL; and one sister, Norma Judy of Lancaster, CA.

Chod worked in County Government for over 30 years.  She first ran for political office in 1978 and was defeated but in doing so, she had the time of her life. Chod then went on to work for the Cass County Sheriff’s Department for 5 years before serving as the Cass County Recorder from 1985-1990, Cass County Auditor from 1991-1998, Cass County Clerk from 1999-2007, and served on the County Council a total of six years, one of which she was Vice President and two of which she served as President.
