Obituary for Sandra JoAnn Tipke

On this day January 3, 2020, Sandra JoAnn (Paul) Tipke has left those that she loved here on earth to join those she has missed in Heaven. Sandra JoAnn Paul was born in Lemmon, South Dakota, born to William W. Paul and Eloise Christenson, at a young age the family moved to Idaho, where she lived the rest of her time with her husband. Sandra will be rejoined with her parents, two sisters and many dear friends and relatives who have passed before her.

Sandee was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in April of 2003. During her many surgeries, treatments and maintenance programs she has fought the good fight. She fought the cancer and all the challenges that came along with it, with such grace, strength and a fighting spirit. Some would say her personality changed once she was diagnosed with the Big C (as she would say), she became more outgoing and free with expression and words. Most of which her Grandchildren will always cherish and remember her for.

For those who knew her, she would light up a room with her smile. During the last years of her life, Sandee enjoyed traveling with her husband, spending time with her friends, shopping, going to the casino for a girl’s trip and enjoyed watching her grandchild Charlie play sports.
She loved all animals from big too small. Minnie Pearl was her last fur baby, a white poodle mix rescue from the Animal Shelter. Minnie came to them from Texas as a rescue. But in reality Minnie was the hero here, lying next to mom during her final days providing unconditional love.

January 3, 2020 at 10:13 a.m. Sandra Jo Ann Tipke, age 69 passed away at home surrounded by her dedicated husband (Larry) and daughter (Kimberly). With the love and support from her loyal husband (Larry) and daughter (Kimberly), Sandee was able to pass on knowing she was loved and appreciated by many. Both (Larry and Kimberly) were able to communicate to her the kind words, cards and thoughts sent to her by dear family and friends during her final days. She leaves behind her beloved husband, Larry Charles Tipke of 52 years; two daughters Lorna M. Schrader and Kimberly K. Tipke Henry, five Grandchildren and six Great-grandchildren.
