Family and friends of Monika Z. Tippins mourn the loss of a remarkable human being. Her daughter, Catherine Dawn Tippins, best described her mother when comparing her to a Rose. Not all ventured beyond her jagged exterior to appreciate the true beauty that she possessed. Those who did found a friend for life. Her never ending quest for knowledge, strong will and determination, love of family and ability to laugh at every challenge has been passed to all that she held dear. Monika’s courage and personal desire to survive her illness left us in awe of her strength. She won many fights but lost her battle on July 18, 2007. She will be missed dearly and her spirit will be with us forever.
Donations can be made at any Wachovia Bank to the ‘checking’ account for Catherine Dawn Tippins.
A memorial service to commemorate the life of Monika Tippins will be held at Fort Fisher (Kure Beach, NC) August 18, 2007 from 6:30pm until sunset. The service will be held on the Fort Fisher State Historic site in the grove next to the waterway (not on the beach side). Please bring your beach chairs, bug spray and fondest memories (or funniest stories!) of Monika to share.
Please park in the parking lot adjacent to the Fort Fisher museum.
