    Goodbye, sweet sister/friend…you are free from pain, resting in the arms of our Lord…heaven’s gain is definitely our loss. I am thankful for our many years together as missionary teachers at Wesleyan Academy in Puerto Rico. We spent many hours together first as housemates and then as neighbors in the duplex on Academy grounds.

    She was my teacher. She was gentle and patient. Each student was important to her. She asked my mom about me for years after i graduated even though she was my first and second grade teacher. I will always be thankful for the foundation of loving learning that she instilled in me and for the little frog puppet that would speak Spanish to us. All of that is precious. She will be missed.

    Aylo and I became neighbors when her parents moved to. Lawrence. She was always a quiet gentle lady who cared for our younger children and hah tremendous love for them. She loved working in her yard and visiting with others. God was always her purpose and served Him well.

    I had miss Lippe as first and second grade teacher. An amazing woman who enjoyed what she did. She will be greatly missed.

    Aylo was so very talented in so many areas yet she was one of the most humble persons I have ever met. She exemplified the Spirit of God in all she did. My dear friend will be missed very much.

    Such a wonderful Christian lady. Loved children and people in general. Loved her Lord most. That was easy to see. Had the privilege of being her administrator at Veritas. She treated me as a seasoned pro. Always appreciated her counsel. I am a better person for having served with her. Her students adored her and their parents trusted her. Great will be her reward, but given her kind humility, a reward she will try to give back. Such a grace-filled disciple. I look forward to seeing her again!

    I am so thankful I knew gentle, tenderhearted Miss Lippe. I loved listening to stories about her time in Puerto Rico and all the Lord did through and around her there. It was obvious that seeing her students know Jesus was her great joy. She also imparted wisdom about preparing for the mission field to my sister and me. Even as her memory started to fade, she steadfastly trusted in Jesus and gave Him glory. I know she’s still doing so, filled with peace and awe.

    Such a precious servant’s heart. Faithful to love, pray for, and teach our children….and their parents too along the way. I am so thankful I had the opportunity to thank her and kiss her smiling cheeks several weeks ago. Happy she is in the presence of the Lord❤️????????

    So sad to see this! As a former student of Douglas County Christian School(DCCS) and now (Veritas Christian School) I have great memories of her as my 2nd grade teacher! She was passionate, patient, and knew how to captivate our attention with stories and lessons. She always knew how to get out focus and attention back too. I think she had a signature hiss that always caught our attention! She was a great lady and served others well. She will be missed! Thankful she had a part in my education and who I am today!

    Ms. Lippe was my fourth grade teacher in Wesleyan Academy in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico. That was back in 1969 or so!! Ms. Lippe was such a sweet, gentle and kind lady. She was one of, if not my best teacher, from elementary school. I have so many fond memories of her classes, which I treasure dearly. My mother, who just passed away last December 20th, was one of her fans and so I am thinking that they have a lot of catching up to do! Rest in Peace, Ms. Lippe!

    An angel on earth finally received her wings… Thank you for your dedicated, loving service as a missionary teacher at Wesleyan Academy, Puerto Rico. Your light still shines. Hundreds of children, now adults, remember you and honor you with much love and admiration. Rest in peace, Miss Lippe!

    Ms. Lippee was a gentle soul sent from heaven to give love and support to her many “children “. Here at WA in Puerto Rico she was an example of what a true missionary was and the love she gave us as children will never be forgotten. Rest in peace, dear Teacher!
