    Aunt Chippy was always so fun to be around. She is a part of many of my favorite childhood memories and my family always looked forward to seeing her family. I am sorry for your family’s loss, but she is heaven’s gain. I will remember her with love.

I know how much you will miss her! “Chip” was truly an extraordinary lady. She was a true joy to know and talking with her was such a delight. Her sweet personality and sense of humor were unsurpassed. We will miss her and always remember her beauty inward and outward. You were blessed with a great mother, grandmother and great-grandmother!
