Rita Frances Kipp
Born to life May 2, 1932, Born to eternal life February 8, 2022. Rita is survived by her sister Barbara Tomlinson, sons Steven Kipp (Lucy), Allen Kipp (Susan), and daughter Robbin Kipp. Further survived by 5 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren, many other loved ones and friends.
For years Rita has treated many of us with nothing but love and cherished memories, of talks later in life when all that can be remembered is “Back when…”
While we mourn, she walks that valley without fear and pain because she knows God is Great! All the time!
Rita’s wishes were for no formal service.
Mom, I will miss you for the rest of my life, I know you are Home Now, relax and Live in peace without suffering. I will make you proud for the rest of my life. I am so honored to have had you in my life, and now relax and enjoy your peace for eternity. LOVE YOU always, Your Daughter Robbin.
My dearest Auntie Rita we are all down here crying and wondering if life will ever be the same your enjoying God’s promise you are doing exactly what it says in Revelations she is now enjoying no more pain, no more sorrow, no more crying! It must be so comforting to know that this is what she wanted, what she asked for, and to go so peacefully. You will be missed my surrogate mom! Love you forever Laura Ann #9
She was there for every “back when” moment my whole life. She used to drive me crazy as she tried to call me by my name… but it always came out something like ” Pat… no, Brian…… no Mike…. ah Timmy !” Like she was doing it in a weird dyslexic alphabetical order… but she would always eventually get there 🙂 It is even funnier as I grow older and I only have MY two daughters’ names to remember (Emily & Ellyn) and how there are times it comes out like “Em-ah-lyn” or “Elm-ily”. So hats off for remembering our names… even if it took a while to hit on hit. Nothing but smiles when thinking of all those days back then. Here is praying you are home now…. the one you sought near the end.
Heartfelt thoughts and prayers also to you Steven; to you Mr. Al (we still need to hit a golf course some day – I’ll bring a couple cubans (cigars that is :), and prayerful thoughts to you Dear Robbin. You did good young lady. You did good.
Blessings to you all. Our family the Love’s were so blessed to have had a family like yours.
Rita you were God sent to take our dear Robbin and love her, guide her, teach and train her up loving the Lord. I’m so thankful she had a mother like you who took in someone else’s child to raise with and as your own. thank you (Angel amongst us) and I know you’re here amongst us now.
Robbin may you and your family bind together stronger than ever to share your sorrow and in that find the joy and peace that passes all understanding that we have.
Love you, your sister,
I am so very sorry for your loss, Robbin. My deepest condolences to you and your family.
