Lippse, Kay

Monday, November 12, 2012

Kay Lippse, of Chattanooga, TN, died suddenly on Saturday, November 10, four days following extensive surgery. 

Kay was born in Jenkins, KY, the daughter of Oren and Letha Fleming who preceded her in death. 

Kay met Charles when he was appointed pastor of Pound United Methodist Church in Pound, A, and she served by his side in churches throughout Virginia and Tennessee until they concluded their itinerant ministry at First Broad Street United Methodist Church, Kingsport. For 20 years, Kay enjoyed teaching high school in Tennessee's Hamilton and Washington counties.  Kay graduated from Pound High School, Bluefield College, and The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Kay lived life to the fullest and was a member of the United Mineworkers' Union and was named a member of the West Virginia Amateur All-Star Basketball Team in 1956.  

Kay leaves a legacy of love, joy, and a childlike faith. Her beautiful smile blessed everyone who knew her, even to the end of her life as she won the hearts of the hospital staff that tended to her.  

She is survived by her hysband of 52 years, Charles Lippse; three daughters, Angela Jill Watson and her husband Bo Watson, Vanessa Gwen Guthrie and her husband Sam Guthrie and Hilda Sullivan and her husband Julian Sullivan; five grandchildren, Grey Watson, Wells Guthrie, and Ella Marie, Sam and Charlsey Sullivan; her sister, Angela Jackson; and her brother, Craig Fleming.  

A service celebrating her life will be held Wednesday, November 14 at 11 a.m. at First Broad Street, Kingsport. 

Kay was fortunate to make multiple trips to the Holy Land and had a special interest in providing opportunities for clergy to do the same. People wanting to make a contribution to that cause can donate in her name to Holston Conference Foundation at PO Box 900 Alcoa, Tennessee 37701 or for the same purpose, the Society of Biblical Studies at 661 Mass. Ave. Suite 40, Arlington, Massachusetts 02476. 

Arrangements are by Grissom Funeral Home.
