Obituary

Mary Jane Tipton passed away into the arms of her Lord on January 16, 2019 in San Antonio, Texas at the age of 95. She was born August 4, 1923 to Laurence O. and Eva C. Campbell, in Hagerstown, Maryland. She was preceded in death by her first husband, of 8 years, Lt John Robert Wagner while serving as a U.S. Navy pilot, and her second husband of 50 years Frank P. Tipton in 2006; a brother, Laurence O. Campbell; and sisters, Helenor Gilbert and Marie Zimmerman. She is survived by her sister, Judith Gossert (Maurice) of Mercersburg, Pennsylvania; and numerous nephews and nieces.

Jane traveled quite frequently during her adult life, but made San Antonio her home in 1998. Her interests varied, but she especially enjoyed her needlepoint work, which she taught herself, and the joy it brought to others.

The family would like to thank Heather Miranda who helped care for Jane for many years and Sheryl Sharwi her nurse who cared for Jane while on Hospice.
