Issue Date: March 21, 2019
Jane Louise (Burkhammer) Kipp, 78, of Wausaukee, passed away Sunday, March 17, 2019.
Born Aug. 22, 1940 in Akron, Oh., to the late Paul and Dorothy (Weimer) Burkhammer, she married Niles David Kipp on Sept. 1, 1972.
A member of the Red Hat Ladies Society and the Wausaukee Singers, she loved to sing and laugh with her family. Her favorite game was Scrabble, but she also enjoyed Yahtzee and was an avid reader. The couple loved to play Pinochle, Cribbage and Euchre and loved to dance.
Lovingly known as "Nana" to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, she was teasingly called "Wheezie" by many others. God and family being her life, she was the backbone, the strength, the glue and the family prayer warrior. Her laugh was contagious with a smile to light up a room. She loved gospel music and singing old hymns.
With Mercy and compassion, she was "Mom" to many and her children will remember her singing "Count Your Many Blessings" and grandchildren and great-grandchildren will remember "Jesus Loves the Little Children" and "The Old Rugged Cross".
She is survived by nine children, Dotti (Ray) Miller, Sandy (David) Sutphin, Janet (Tom) Miller, Win (Jen) Kipp, Brian Kipp, David Kipp, Pat (Dani) Kipp, Keith (Jann) Kipp and Jason Kipp (aka: grandson); 19 grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; two brothers; favorite daughter, Margie (Terry) Popp; the entire Walton family and many other family members and friends.
Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by three children, John Kipp, Rick Kipp and Gladys Javes; two sisters and three brothers.
Visitation will be held on Thursday, March 21 at Lyndahl Funeral Home, 1350 Lombardi Avenue, Green Bay from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Visitation will continue on Friday, March 22, 2019 from 10 a.m. until time of the funeral service at 11 a.m. at Crosspoint Church, 1880 Southbridge Road, De Pere, with Pastor Jerry Lewin officiating. A memorial fund has been established in her name for St. Judes Children's Hospital.
