Elizabeth "Libby" Ann (LaBarre) Osborne, daughter of Nester and Glada LaBarre, passed away in her home early Monday morning. She was 75 years old. She rejoined her beloved husband of 50 years, William Derrol Osborne, who passed away four years prior. She is survived by her sons, Jon and Jeffrey Osborne; grandchildren, Rachael Kingery and Austin Osborne; great-granddaughter, Addison Kingery; brother, Richard LaBarre; and many nieces and nephews. Libby's fire burned bright and she is remembered for her warmth, outgoing nature and love of life. She earned her Bachelors of Science in Education from Ohio University and was a kindergarten teacher at Germantown Elementary in the early 1970's. For 12 years she owned and managed Salsa's Mexican Restaurant in Blue Ash, where she never met a stranger. Libby also enjoyed golf, tennis, antique collecting and volunteering for various charities. She was a busy and hardworking wife, mother and a friend to all. A private interment will be held in her birthplace of Marietta, Ohio. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to Shriners Hospital, 3229 Burnet Ave, Cincinnati, Ohio 45229. Alexandria Funeral Home is serving the family.
