A young man who is special to our family lost his paternal grandmother today. After several years of failing health, she passed away quietly overnight in her sleep. My family especially wants to pass along our condolences to Alex and his family as we keep them in our thoughts and prayers.
Below is the obituary of this lovely lady who graced Staunton, Virginia, for so many years:
Evelyn Lipscomb died Thursday morning, January 28, 2010."And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." -- Revelation 21:4
She was born in Granite Falls, NC, on July 3, 1926, a daughter of James H. and Nellie Taylor Radford. She was preceded in death by her first husband, well-known WTON radio host, Albert Wakefield "Bob" Davis and her second husband, H. Robert Lipscomb, Jr.
Mrs. Lipscomb was employed by Senator Thomas Kuchel (R-CA); Admiral Forrest Sherman, Chief of Naval Operations, Pentagon; several Staunton law firms; and retired from ASR (Verona) in 1991. She was a member of Trinity Episcopal Church.
Surviving are her son and daughter-in-law Tracey W. and Pam Collie Davis, a grandson Alex O. Davis, and granddaughter, Kacey E. Davis of Staunton.
A service will be held in Granite Falls, NC.
