Linda Johnson Sipe
Born on April 23, 1939, and passed away peacefully on December 6, 2019, at the age of 80, surrounded by loved ones. Nana, as everyone called her, was a devoted wife and mother; she was a person full of joy, laughter, and was known to have a mean index finger if you've been around her long enough you knew what that meant. She was a person full of energy and one who was always willing to help those in need. She touched many lives and was loved by all who knew her. Linda was a proud Nana who loved caring and watching kids for working parents - she was also good at straightening them out when they misbehaved. She was a hard worker, never complained, and kept herself busy all the time. Other joys in her life were spending it with Red Hat fellowship and watching the birds in front of her kitchen window feeding on the bird feeder. As an avid gardener, she enjoyed tending to her flowers during the early mornings; these were moments she cherished while she overlooked her lawn and shared a hot cup of coffee with her wonderful husband, Jack. She now has a beautiful garden to walk on and a place to admire the glorious beauty of our Lord Jesus Christ. She's in good hands up above and loved by those she left behind.
She joins her beloved family, Glen Johnson, Hugh J., Bruce J., Warren J., Herbert J., Doris Ellington, and Gary J., in heaven. She is survived by her husband Jack Sipe; son, Mike with wife Felisa; daughter Annette with husband Miguel Cavas. Surviving siblings: brother Don with wife Ann, brother, Billy Howell with wife Connie, and best friend and sister Katherine Frazier, as well as her brother-in-law Herman Green. Along with grandkids: Mary Lynne Moore with husband Chris, Spencer Shaw with wife Rachel, Evan Shaw with wife Michaela, Alexa Cavas, Austin Cavas, Drew Sipe, Trevor Sipe with wife Lauren, Crystal Haire, Caitlin Daniels, and Madison Davis. Great-grandkids: Jake Moore, Jason Moore, Jayden Moore, Jaxon Moore, Brentley Shaw, Sailer Shaw, heavenly angel Bailey Shaw, Addison Shaw, Carsyn Shaw, Lylah Shaw, Colton Shaw, Peyton Sipe, Lilly Sipe, Liam Sipe, Landen Wilson, Libby Haire, Laylen Daniels, and Enslee Kerr, accordingly.
