Mrs. Lippert was a member of the Shattuc United Methodist Church in Shattuc, Illinois. She was a life-time member of the Sandoval Order of Eastern Star. She enjoyed being outside all the time and every chance she had she was out riding her three-wheel bike. She could be heard humming and singing all the time and her favorite hymn was “Old Rugged Cross.” She loved to watch her favorite shows on television, especially her soap operas, westerns and old movies. Mrs. Lippert didn’t have a bad word to say about anyone. She was known to be the most patient lady and she would wait until something was done. She was not one to complain about anything. Mrs. Lippert was all about her family and stood up for her children no matter what they got into. She cherished the Sunday rides with her husband and children and always looked forward to seeing the lights at Christmas time.
Mrs. Lippert was a housewife and homemaker. She graduated with Sandoval High School’s “Class of 1946.” She lived in Salem, Illinois since 2013 and formerly lived in Shattuc, Illinois.
