Lillian M. Shipp

Lillian Marie Shipp (nee Nassor), passed away peacefully on December 19, 2017. Born on May 5th, 1927 in Hackensack, NJ, she resided in Bergenfield, NJ prior to settling in Golden, CO.

She was also a member of the church choir. Lilly worked for years at the Valley Hospital in Ridgewood as an EKG Technician and was an avid fan of Frank Sinatra. Lilly was the rock of her family.
