Obituary: Janice Mae Sipperly of Woodbury

Services for Janice Mae Sipperly will take place on Thursday and Friday, July 19 and 20.


Janice Mae Littlefield Sipperly, 75, of Woodbury, died on Friday, July 13, 2012.

She was the devoted wife of the late Raymond Vernon Sipperly and daughter of the deceased Milton and Mary Littlefield, also of Woodbury.

Sipperly was currently a paralegal at Law Offices of Avitabile and Hoffler of Waterbury. Her years of devotion to the job never failed to bring joy to the office.

She was passionate about everything — playing the piano, traveling, gardening, exploring history and the arts — all with a fashionable hat on her head and stylish shoes on her feet.

Sipperly was the glue that held her seven children tight to her heart, yet always giving them ample room to grow.

She leaves a void in the Sipperly family: son Raymond, his wife Colette and sons Jack and Landon; daughter Patti Lane and her daughters Jessica and Lindsay; son Christopher and his son Garrett Eastman-Littlefield; daughter Debbie and her son Riley; son David, his wife Gina and son Adam and daughters Myriah, Kaitlin, Adam, Cassandra, Kelsey and Madison. Sons Gregory and Brian are predeceased.

Sipperly was full of life and a positive force to everyone she met. She lived her life to its fullest: always moving, learning, and scavenging tag sales. Her children have no doubt she is cruising through heaven with the convertible top down, the wind in her hair and a smile on her face.
