Mary Kippen

April 13, 1932 — May 25, 2014

Ms. Mary Kippen stepped off this life’s carriage at home, peaceful and with family on May 25, 2014.

Mighty fine Ms. Kippen was 82 years young, born April 13, 1932. She made a welcoming home for her children, John, Laurie, Tom, Dave and Ken (Hey), as well as many neighborhood youts.

Ms. Kippen will be well-remembered and cherished by her children, their spouses and sister Linda Zeller. In addition, she was beloved by oodles of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family.

Mary enjoyed life’s journey, growing up in Naperville, Ill., with her brother Bill Kippen and sisters Linda and Phyllis Robinson. She spent many of her favorite years in La Crosse, and treasured the lifelong friendships sown there. Her most recent home was made in Pewaukee, spent contentedly with family nearby. Ms. Kippen led a productive, professional and wonderfully creative life state. A private celebration of her life was held at a location she cherished dearly.

Kind gestures or donations, made to enhance the life of any person or animal in need, would truly honor Ms. Kippen.

Be tranquil in your travels, Mom.
