Mrs. Nona was always so sweet to me. I worked with Mr Sipes for many years he truly adored her. I was invited to many church dinners and always felt like family with them. I know he will be waiting to welcome her home. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I know how much each of you loved her.

So very sorry for the passing of (Sister Sipes )to me, which is said out of the Greatest love and respect for both Bro Ken too which my family will always love and miss. The best times in our lives and they were there our foundations for life were formed by these people! I know there has to be a great reunion in Heaven for her with my Mother, the Gibson's and many More . Before the Covid she would sometimes sit at McDonald's with my Daddy and bring him happy memories also! Love and prayers. Sherry and Larry Callicott and Donzel Tomlinson.

She was a beautiful lady and she will be missed by many. And I'm one of the many I won't get to hear her say I love you. She always said that to me no matter where we met. Walmart, McDonalds. She was a great Mentor for me I learned how to be Direct and do the job that I was assigned because of her. And I am still going on those qualities. Thanks to her

Before the pandemic, there was a group of us who used to gather at McDonalds on Timberlane (before work, etc.) and Me Me, as we would all call her, would be there with us enjoying her latte. We would all enjoy her company and looked forward to seeing each other every morning! I have thought about those times a lot over the past year! We have missed seeing her there and also at church!

Larry, Lisa and Abby, you are in our thoughts and prayers! We pray God will comfort you during this time of grief and know He will carry you through!
