KIPPING, ISABEL CHRISTINA (NEE NICHOLSON) - With family at her side, Isabel Christina Kipping, R.N., age 80 years, was released from a long struggle with Alzheimer's disease on Friday, June 8, 2007 at Beach Grove Nursing Home, Charlottetown, PEI. Known to family and friends as "Girlie", she was the beloved wife for 56 years of Eric J. Kipping, Stanhope, PEI; and loving mother of Pat(ricia), Halifax, NS, John (Susan Montague), Fredericton, NB, Carl (Beverly), Long Reach, NB; and Jonathan (Vita), Saint John, NB. She will be sadly missed by her grandchildren, Tara Kipping Perkins, Ucluelet, BC, Willie Kipping Perkins, Halifax, John Raymond Kipping, Fredericton, NB, Alexander Kipping, Long Reach, NB, and Christina Kipping, Saint John, NB. She is survived by one sister, Jean (David) Chabassol, Victoria, BC; and one brother, Edmund (Mora) Nicholson, Baddeck, NS; and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by son, Christopher (1996); sisters, Helen Martin, Alice MacRae; twin brother, Frank and brother, Billy; and by parents, William Wallace Nicholson and Melissa (Watson) Nicholson, Baddeck, NS. In a career that spanned forty years and four provinces, Isabel nursed hundreds of patients, many with Alzheimer Disease and other dementias. Throughout her life, she set a fine example of compassionate care, not only at work but for all who knew her as an active community volunteer in church, home and school, hospice care and as an advocate for death with dignity. Despite hardships and disappointments she never lost her playful zest for life and a strong heart that warmed and delighted all who met her. Isabel lived with Alzheimer's disease for more than fifteen years, the last four and a half years in Beach Grove Nursing Home, Charlottetown, to whose staff and volunteers the family extends deep gratitude for the quality of care, tenderness and respect rendered to Isabel and to the family. According to her wishes there will be two memorial services– one on each of her beloved islands. The first will be held on Thursday, June 14 at 2 pm in Stanhope United Church, Stanhope, PEI. A reception will follow. The second will take place at St. Andrew's United Church, Baddeck Forks, Nova Scotia where her cremated remains will be interred followed by a reception at the Baddeck Forks community hall. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Alzheimer Society of PEI, Charlottetown, or the Victoria County Memorial Hospital, Baddeck, NS. Arrangements entrusted to MacLean Funeral Home Swan Chapel, Charlottetown. Online condolences may be made at Monday, June 11, 2007
