Meldora Ann Phipps

December 23, 1948 ~ March 10, 2021 (age 72)


Meldora Ann Phipps, age 72, of Newark, Delaware, peacefully returned to her heavenly home with family by her side on March 10, 2021 at Christiana Hospital (Newark DE).

Meldora was born in West Chester PA on December 23, 1948 and the daughter of the late Willie and Gency Phipps. She graduated from Kennett High School and received her Associates Degree from Wilmington University. She accepted Christ as a member of Faith Tabernacle Church (Oxford PA) and was a remote member of Impact Church (Detroit MI). 

Meldora was an electronics technician working for Agilent Technologies, formerly Hewlett-Packard instrumentation division, retiring after 38 years of service. She always looked forward to the retiree lunch get-togethers and cherished the friendships she made over the years.

Meldora enjoyed travel, online shopping for jewelry, latest technology and gadgets, line dancing, playing Pokeno with family and friends, and more importantly, she loved spoiling her grandsons. For the last 25 years, she never missed a year visiting her Michigan family bringing the latest and greatest gifts in tow.

Meldora is survived by one daughter Kimberly Knox, and her husband Kurmmell (Roseville, MI); two grandsons, Kristian and Kameron Knox; one brother Clifton Phipps and his wife Janice (Newark, DE); niece Tysha Hackett and husband Monte (Bear DE); niece Candice Geipel and husband Rob (Bear DE); and a host of great-nieces, great-nephews, and cousins.

She is preceded in death by her brother Willie Phipps Jr and her great-grandson Kurmmell Knox II.
