Shady Point News
LeFlore County, Oklahoma
May 3, 1946
...This community was saddened last Saturday morning to learn that at 9 o'clock the previous night Charles LIPPY passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. J. L. BRADDY, at Panama.
Mr. Lippy, who has been in ill health for some time, was only seriously for a few days preceeding his death.
He was one of the pioneers of this part of the country, a man well liked by all who knew him. He and his wife, who preceeded him in death by several years, were residents of Shady Point for many years, having practically reared and educated their family here, but for the past two or three years he has made his home with Mrs. Braddy at Panama.
Funeral services were held at the Baptist church here at 2 o'clock Sunday, Rev. Caves, Baptist pastor at Panama, delivering the sermon and the Miller funeral home of Poteau in charge at graveside.
A large concourse of relatives and friends attended the services.
The sympathies of many friends, both at Shady Point and Panama were extended the family.
Among those from out of town attending were his granddaughter and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Brkhalter [Burkhalter] of Tuscaloosa, Ala; Mrs. B[u]rkhalter, the former Doris Braddy, who is a member of the school faculty at Tuscaloosa; Mr. and Mrs. J.C. Holland of Arkoma, their daughter, Mrs. Gertrude Strange of Fort Smith, John Roberson of Kansas City, Mo., R.C. Parish, Noel, Mo., and Georgia Davis, Muskogee, all relatives and Mr. and Mrs. Hosea Parris of Poteau. Mr. and Mrs. O. E. Long of Panama, Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Austin of Bokoshe, old friends and acquaintances also were noted in the crowd.
