Miss Toddy, even though you got to see so many years on this Earth it feels so unreal that it was truly your time to go....i already miss our Sunday movie nights and you looking at me like i was crazy when Id ask who everyone was(because they were before my time)....we watched some good ones and other times we just shake our heads in disbelief in the not so good movies lol i loved to hear all of your stories, loved looking through your photo albums with you and i especially loved your charm, your quick wit, non chalant sense of humor and especially your "tell it like it is" personality. I dont know if you heard me but before you left us I sat down next to your bed and one thing I said was thank you for always being so kind and showing so much love to my youngest son "August" when he would visit, and thank you for the gifts you would buy for him, Ill miss telling you about all of the crazy things he does and hearing you make excuses for him(just like grandmas do :-)......you truly were a beautiful soul and will be sorely missed...i can only hope to be as awesome and strong a woman as you were....I hope one day we will meet again! All my love to you and my condolences to Billy, Missy and the boys!!
I so enjoyed sitting next to Toddy and the Shipman crew at Matt's baseball games. Toddy was a pleasure to talk with and had a spirit I wish to have as a grandparent! I'm so sorry her passing but am grateful for the blessing Toddy had the year's on this earth! Sending much love to Missy, Bill, Matt and Billy!
I was lucky enough to get to know Toddy over the last few years. She was sweet, charming, and oh, so funny. With that twinkle in her eye, and a story to tell, there was never a dull moment when I was able to visit with her. My heart and prayers go out to the Shipman family, especially to Bill, Missy and her favorite boys, Matt and Billy. It was comforting to see that she was welcomed to heaven with a rainbow on Sunday.
Love and hugs,
We didn’t get together often enough but it was always a pleasure to see Toddy. We’re sorry to hear of her passing.she became a FB “friend” a few months ago and we’re grateful to have had contact with her recently.

My dearest little lady! My babe!
Taking care of you has been an absolute pleasure. I wouldn’t trade that time for anything in the entire world. The beginning of us was rocky, but we’ve been pretty strong for such a long time. I rarely called you toddy. When I did, you would give me that look! Big eyes, and a big huff. I sure will miss the stories and the advice. Ill always remember our “fake” fights we’ve had along the way... I’ll forever wait for you to be ready to party! Until we meet again. Rest up, because your going to be in for a HUGE party when I see you again!
Sending loving thoughts and prayers to the entire family. Bill, Matthew, missy, billy.
My condolences to the family!! I worked with Toddy for many years as a bus driver before she retired!! Many good times and laughs!! Haven't seen her for years, but thought of her often!! Thanks for the memories Toddy!!
Our deepest condolences to Bill , Missy , Matt and Billy.

My dearest Toddy . I will miss our trips to the bakery and to Walmart where you said you loved to watch the people. But the funniest was at the grocery store where every time at the check out you would always sneak your snacks .
May you Rest In Peace .
