A blue-ribbon bonsai

Mrs. Gibbs began growing bonsai trees with her daughter.

“Growing bonsai is something you do for decades if you get the chance,’’ said her friend Gail Docktor of Ipswich. “She knew the irony of it. She did it in hope.’’

Mrs. Gibbs’s bonsai tree won a blue ribbon last year in a category for novice growers at the Topsfield Fair.

Rebecca Richardson Gibbs was only 44.
