A real estate agent and mother of three, Heather Moffitt-Gibson, was killed in an early morning car accident in North Side Friday.

The 43-year-old died after her burgundy Land Rover careered off the road and into the bushes near Rum Point.

Her husband Bobby Gibson announced the news in a Facebook post to family and friends on Friday.

He wrote, “It is with heart-felt regret that I am informing friends and family of the tragic passing of Heather Moffitt-Gibson, my wife and mother of my children and grandchild.

“She was involved in a car accident early this morning. As a family, we are mourning her passing for she will be greatly missed. She was a great mother to our children Papie, Dylan and our baby girl Hannah and even better grandmother to our grandson Jaxon.”

Ms. Moffitt-Gibson worked as a real estate agent with Cayman Luxury Properties.

Jeanette Totten, who owns the business with her husband Robert, said the whole team were devastated by the news.

“She was not only a co-worker, she was also a friend to all of us at Cayman Luxury as well as others in the Cayman Islands Real Estate Brokers Association. Her bubbling personality will be missed by all. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and especially her children at this time.”

James Whittaker, CEO of GreenTech, where Mrs. Moffitt-Gibson previously worked as office administrator, said, “During her time with us, she quickly became a valued employee and friend. She will be dearly missed by our entire team and we are terribly saddened this tragedy has befallen her and her family. We especially pray for her children during this very difficult time.”

Police ask anyone with information on the accident to call the Traffic Management Unit at 649-6254.
