Meldora Ann Phipps, age 72, of Newark, Delaware, passed away on March 10, 2021 at Christiana Hospital in Newark, DE with family by her side.

Born in West Chester, PA, she was the daughter of the late Willie and Gency Phipps. She graduated from Kennett High School and received her Associates Degree from Wilmington University.

She 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.

She accepted Christ as a member of Faith Tabernacle Church (Oxford PA) and was a remote member of Impact Church (Detroit MI). 

She enjoyed travel, online shopping for the latest technology and gadgets 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.
