My Aunt Sippy was a sweet and very kind lady. I loved all of our many visits with her and Uncle Howard at their Shavertown home. Her amazing generosity in her will helped my family immensely. Love you, Aunt Sippy

My Aunt Sippy was an awesome lady who I will always admire for her kind and thoughtful ways, her loving heart and her hospitality!! She was one of my first role models as a professional woman and I always admired how she could raise the glass ceiling while still being kind and humble!! I will forever cherish the birthstone ring that she bequeathed to me after my grandmother ( her mom ) passed away. We all were born in August. RIP, Aunt Sippy:-)
