Charitable ‘elf’ dies at 90
Graveside service set for Saturday for Thelma Sipe
ROCK FALLS – Ninety-year-old Thelma J. Sipe never wore funny hats or traveled to the North Pole.
Nevertheless, the Whiteside County Health Department staff will forever remember the Prophetstown woman as their “little elf.”
Sipe – who died Oct. 19 – spent her time and money handcrafting hundreds of hats, mittens, quilts and crafts for needy children at Christmastime. The health department staff distributed her gifts every year.
