Nancy Foster Tipton, age 93, formerly of Erwin, went to her heavenly home on Friday, January 7, 2022. She is a daughter of the late Lige and Ruby Gentry Foster. Mrs. Tipton was a lifelong resident of Erwin before moving into Agape Nursing Home in Johnson City.
Nancy retired from Industrial Garment in 1991 where she was employed as a Seamstress for twenty-nine years. She was a member of Clear Branch Baptist Church. Nancy enjoyed cooking, tending flowers, word searches, coloring in her coloring books, sewing and playing practical jokes on others. While she was living at Agape Nursing Home, she was a very helpful resident, she was always making sure the other residents were okay or seeing if they needed anything.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Billy J. Tipton, November 5, 2011; her daughter, Shirley Ann Tipton, November 27, 2018.
