Barbara Ann “Nana” Shipp, resident of Peoria and Flagstaff, AZ, born December 19, 1934 in Albany, New York has left our world to be in heaven on July 5, 2019. Barbara is survived by her husband of 65 years, Ronald Shipp, her four children Cindy Lewis, Dennis and his wife Sheryl, Randy, and Steven Shipp, along with 8 grandchildren, and 18 great-grandchildren. Barbara was proceeded by her parents John & Mary Emerick, and grandson Daniel Lewis.
Barbara moved to Phoenix with her parents at the age of 12. She met and married the love of her life, Ron, and their life was filled with adventures raising their children. Our Nana never hesitated to play with the grandchildren and great-children, always sure they ate and that they knew they were loved.
Barbara loved God fearlessly and lived her life showing His love to all around her, saying that there are no strangers in this world.
A celebration of her life will take place on Saturday, July 20, 2019 at 11:00 am, with lunch served afterwards in the reception hall at Skyway Church 14900 W Van Buren St., Goodyear, Az 85338.
