In memory of
Shirley Mae Clippinger
Shirley Mae Clippinger Shirley Mae Clippinger of Gold Bar, WA, cast off her earthly body on January 29, 2011 at the age of 86. She died from a massive stroke. Her family and friends are happy that she will be without pain and the physical limitations of a body that had failed to keep up with her spirit. Shirley has shown her family the meaning of strength and hope. She maintained a strong will and determination to control her own health and life. Our diminutive mother, all 4'6" of her, has always been a force to contend with especially when we bumped up against her will. When things became overwhelming for her, she finally agreed to move into an Adult Family Home. Mom loved the Gold Bar area and in her younger years, you may have passed her walking on a back trail hunting for mushrooms that she would make a neighbor eat first. Or you may have seen her sitting on a riverbank with her fishing pole in hand. She enjoyed doing crossword puzzles and gardening. You may have been sitting at the craft table doing ceramics with her. Or you may have played Bunco once a month with her. You may have sat with her at the Gold Bar VFW hall. Words to describe our mom. A worrier. Impatient. Scrappy. Very emotional. A perfectionist. Preceded in death by husband of 63 years, Elbert (Bud) Clippinger; parents, Price and Dorothy Ballard; brothers, George and Jerry Ballard. Survived by her sister, Carolyn Bergeron. Surviving daughters, Judy (Richard) Boyd of Marysville, WA and Diane Carrillo of Arlington, WA. Grandchildren, Rebecca Wood, Marcus King, Tanya Coman, and Tracy Carlson. ten great-grandchildren; two great-great grandchildren. There will be no service. Rest in peace, Mom, for a life well lived. We will miss you.
