Kathy Sipes passed away at home on May 2, 2021 a few weeks short of her 68th birthday following a long battle with cancer.
She was born in Lima, Peru to Jack and Beverly Hulsey. Kathy grew up in Irving, Texas and graduated from North Texas State University. She married her loving husband, Ron Sipes, on October 18, 1975. They raised two wonderful sons, Sam and Dan. As a mother, Kathy instilled in her sons a keen sense of humor, adventure, and determination, among other things.
Kathy was exceptional and generous with a zest for life and love for people. Her constant curiosity and keen memory showed in the way she remembered the smallest details about people's lives and never forgot a birthday. As the owner of a promotional products business, she was known for her personal touch that made every order perfect. Ever thoughtful and perceptive, she was an extraordinary gift giver.
Kathy loved to be active. Whether physically or socially, she was always on the move. Her sharp eye for aesthetics helped her create a beautiful home and garden.
Kathy will be sorely missed and is survived by her husband, two sons and their wives Dan and Laura Sipes, Sam and Deepa Sipes, grandson Isaac, sister Barbara Lee and her family, sister Marcia Engelking and her family, brother Pat Hulsey and his family and countless family and friends, all of whom loved her dearly and will never forget her tenacity, wit, charm, undying love, and care for them.
A celebration of life is planned for the 15th of May at 9am at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas, 1700 University Dr, Fort Worth, TX 76107. All guests are encouraged to wear blue in Kathy's honor.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The American Cancer Society or The North Texas Food Bank in Kathy's honor.
