Dolores Ann Tippin ran into the arms of her loving savior, Jesus Christ on Wednesday, July 10, 2019 at the Lakes of Sylvania. She was the daughter of the late Allan and Phyllis Wheeler. She was born in West Chicago, Illinois March 3, 1931. She worked for an attorney and at Owens Illinois where she met the love of her life, Sam. She also worked in the children’s shoe department at the Lion Store. Dolores also a volunteered at Flower Hospital. She was a member of Fairgreen Presbyterian Church. Dolores loved to travel and explore the world with Sam. Her favorite trip was to the Holy Land where she and Sam renewed their wedding vows. She also loved to play cards with her many friends and never turned down a good game of bingo or a chance to go to the casino.
Dolores was never afraid to voice her opinion and taught her children and grandchildren to stand up for themselves. She was very proud of all of her grandchildren and loved to travel to watch them participate in sports, theater and whatever they were involved in. She made every effort to share in their accomplishments by attending high school and college graduations and weddings. Now she will get to watch each of them shine with her beloved Sam.
Dolores is survived by her children: Cary (Cyndy) of Lambertville, MI, Mike (Lisa) of Bryan, OH, Susan (Jerry) of Swanton, and Mark (Jenny), of Baltimore. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Matt, Mandy, Eric, Tara, Ashley, Elizabeth, Kaitlin, Korbin, Melissa, Hannah, Lexie and Bethany. She was thrilled to welcome her great-grandchildren: Ramzy Samuel, Sienna, Rozlyn, Aria, Brody, Michael, Jack and Henry into her family. She is also survived by Sister, Mary Kovac of Sun City and many nieces and nephews who affectionately referred to her as Auntie Dee. She was preceded in death by her husband, Sam, parents, sisters, Elaine, Irene, Lois and brothers Paul and Jim.
