I am so sorry to hear of her passing. She was such a wonderful person. One
time when we were riding together she told me she got a job designing clothes
when she was 17 and that she and the other employees made the royal robes
that Queen Elizabeth II and the rest of the royal family wore for her
coronation. They also made the large giant red velvet piece that hung in
Westminster Abbey. Delphine and the other employees there all took turns
wearing each one of the royal robes after they were completed and before
handing them over to the royal family. I always think of her wearing each one
of those when I see historic footage of that event.
She will be sorely missed.

I am passing along a note from Natalie, Delphine Tipper's daughter: "Thought
you might like to know that mum passed away last night from dementia. It’s fine
if you want to pass on the info to others if you want."
Delphine was a long time member of Camping Women, an avid hiker. She
visited many National parks when she first came here from England...probably
more than any of us! She will be remembered for her 3 little dogs, her vibrant
red hair, enthusiasm for anything purple, as well as her love of the outdoors!
