Nancy Lee Sipe of Bossier City, Louisiana peacefully passed on the evening of December 20, 2022. She was born March 2, 1935, in Washington D.C to her parents, Hale Lincoln and Pauline Victoria Golden of Silver Spring, Maryland. She is predeceased by the love of her life Paul Richard Sipe, formerly of Burnham Pennsylvania and her sister Linda McKay Brown of Raleigh North Carolina. She is lovingly remembered by her three children; Stephen Richard Sipe, Jeffrey Lee Sipe, and Mary Kathryn Estes, son-in-law Joel Michael Estes, daughters in law; Linda Sipe and Rainbow Sipe, brother-in-law Herbert Brown, niece Julie Soderlund, nephew Mark Brown, and her beloved eight grandchildren and sixteen great grandchildren whom she was so proud of and brought much joy to her life.
She met her husband at the Woodside Methodist church in Silver Spring, MD where they both attended and were choir members together. They married in 1956 and shortly thereafter began a journey around the world in service to our nation. After 30 years of service, they retired together to Winchester Virginia. Not long after Richard’s passing, she relocated to Bossier City, Louisiana to be closer to her daughter and family.
Nancy was a very active member of the Methodist Church throughout her life; singing in the choir, baking her famous cherry pies for sales, teaching the Disciple Series, Bible studies and was a member in the Methodist Women of Faith ministries. Nancy was an expert of needle crafts, making beautiful quilts and crocheting blankets for family and friends while donating her works to the Shaw ministry at the First United Methodist Church of Bossier City, Louisiana.
Her family and faith were the most important forces in her life.
