Karen "Lindy" Tipton
1937-2016

Karen "Lindy" Tipton, daughter of Theodore and Gladys Lindblom of Seattle, died Nov. 20 in La Jolla, California, due to complications of advanced dementia. She was 79.
Born in 1937 in Seattle, Lindy received a Bachelor of Education from Washington State University. She taught in Washington, New York and Germany, where she traveled and skied throughout Europe. She was always full of life and loved adventure. Lindy returned from Europe to marry her wonderful husband, Keith, and relocated to San Francisco and shortly thereafter, to Orinda. She spent 46 years in Orinda and cherished her work with the Orinda Women's Club and spending time with all of her incredible friends.
Lindy was a beloved wife, mother and friend. Her husband, Keith, preceded her in death in 1999 from cancer. She is survived by her two daughters, Kim and Kelly, along with Kim's husband, John Tang, and Kelly's fiance, Jon Davis, Jr., all of whom live in San Diego. Lindy would want all of her dear friends in Northern California to know how much she cherished them and that the debilitating effects of dementia precluded her from keeping in touch, as she would have loved so much. God bless you all.
Memorial gifts may be made to the Dementia Society of America, www.dementiasociety.org.
Services will be held in San Diego at a date to be determined.
