Elizabeth "Tippi" Ann Phelps Wicker, born October 26, 1946, to Harold and Sunshine Phelps in Paducah, Kentucky, passed peacefully early Saturday, March 11, 2017, in Tooele, Utah.
She went to Sharpe Elementary School in Marshall County, Kentucky, graduated from Reidland High School and attended Murray State, graduating with a Master's in Social Work. She received her addiction specialty from Rollins College in Orlando, Florida, and worked in the field of addiction for 35 years. The number of lives she touched is unfathomable. Her kindness, love, and generosity of heart knew no limits and that showed in every life she was blessed enough to touch. In retirement she chose to continue touching lives with her healing grace by working with hospice, as well as a beloved substitute teacher for Tooele County School District.
She dedicated her life to helping others and to her son, L. Dale Wicker, and the family that loved her unconditionally, daughter-in-law, Kimberly; grandchildren, Keagan and Caitlin; her sister, Judith Harolyn Tucker of Paducah; and the dogs, Bailey and Thane.
Her final wishes were for those that loved her to celebrate her arrival to her Heavenly Father, therefore, a Celebration of Life is being planned for a future date.
In lieu of flowers, Tippi would have loved a donation to the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America, www.myasthenia.org.
