Jewell Elizabeth "Liz" Tipton of Columbia, passed away the morning of Sunday, June 25th, 2017 in the comfort of her home from natural causes. She was 84 years old.

There will be no services scheduled at this time.

She was born October 25th, 1933 to Myrtle and Will Harris. She survived her parents, siblings, husband (Harold Tipton), and daughter (Diane Cross). Liz is survived by her only grandson, Stuart Smith.

Liz was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. Those who knew Liz will remember her for her fiercely loving personality and her strong backbone. She was a woman of conviction and took the time to stand up for herself and others when she felt it necessary. She had a wonderful sense of humor and a sharp mind, and even if she was a little stubborn at times, she was incredibly lovable.

Liz loved listening to music and dancing and spent many hours at the senior center with her partner, Alex Riddles, shuffling and twirling for as long as her body would allow. One of the great sadnesses of her life was when she could no longer dance.

Special thanks to those who cared for Liz at the end of her life and those friends and family who visited.

In lieu of a service, donations can be made on her behalf to the Columbia Area Senior Center, CMAAA (Central Missouri Area Agency on Aging), or the Central Missouri Humane Society.
