February 10, 1933 - February 18, 2019
Sarah Loretta Thorsen Tipton, loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully on Monday, February 18, 2019 surrounded by her family. She was born February 10, 1933, the 13th child of Charles and Eva Thorsen. She was raised in Provo and remained a lifelong resident. She married her sweetheart, Robert Earl Tipton, on September 1, 1950; together they raised 6 wonderful daughters. Tip and Loretta enjoyed 57 years together until his passing in 2007. Loretta loved her family and enjoyed spending time with and fussing over them. She spent many a late night sewing dresses for her girls to wear to school, always making sure they looked their best. She was an excellent cook and never let anyone go hungry. Her pot roast was the best, and Sunday dinners were always a treat. She took great pride in having a nice home, and could often be seen with a broom or dust rag in hand. Holidays were always a favorite for her; she had special decorations for everything from Valentine’s to Christmas. She enjoyed traveling and visited many places, some of her favorite destinations were: Jackson Hole, Disneyland, Branson, and Nashville. She also loved camping, especially up Hobble Creek Canyon. In their golden years, she and Tip bought a beautiful R.V. and traveled all over the country, making many new friends along the way. Of everything that Loretta was, her favorite role had to be that of mother and grandmother. She always provided a shoulder to cry on, a listening ear, and a hand to hold. There wasn’t much that she couldn’t fix, usually just with her love and a special treat. We will miss her deeply. A few years after Tip’s death, Loretta’s health began to decline and her daughter Carol moved in to care for her. She was so grateful to have Carol with her, and our family is so thankful for the wonderful, loving care that she gave to our mom/grandma for the last 8 years, until the very last breath. We take comfort in knowing that our angel is free of pain and will be with her sweetheart again. Love you every day! She is preceded in death by her husband, parents, 14 siblings, and granddaughter, Amy. She is survived by her 6 daughters: Connie Tipton, Marilyn (Robert) Peck, Debra (Brent) Williams, Peggy (Larry) Lehman, Carol Robison, Sandy (Gary) Jensen; 8 grandchildren, and 15 great-grandchildren. Per Loretta’s wishes, there will be no funeral service. Graveside services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, February 23, 2019 at the Provo City Cemetery, 610 South State Street, Provo, Utah. Friends may call at the Berg Mortuary of Provo, 185 East Center Street from 9:30-10:50 a.m. prior to services at the cemetery. Condolences may be expressed at www.bergmortuary.com.
