Obituary

Lora Helen "Dee" Zippilli, age 58, of Elkton, MD passed away after a brief illness on Monday, June 19, 2017.

Born February 19, 1959 in Elkton, MD, Dee was the daughter of the late Henry and Loretta (Campbell) Denney. Almost graduating in 1977, Dee's pride-and-joy and her one true love, Henry her son, came into her life. A devoted single mother, she was all too familiar with the hardships of life but she persevered with her son and they both became stronger because of it. She worked hard to obtain the credits needed to achieve her diploma later on. She worked for Chrysler for almost a decade before she decided to devote her life to her family and the many volunteer programs that brought her so much joy. She enjoyed working with organizations such as the 4H Club (88-89) where she would cook for the Beagle Club and provided the children a place to have meetings. She would also collect donations from local businesses to help support this program. She was also involved with Operation Santa Claus and Toys for Tots to help children in need. Dee was a lover of art and appreciated the many splendors that art brought to the world. Her greatest joy was helping others, she truly was a kind and loving soul. She was loved by many and will be missed dearly by many more.

Dee is survived by her loving husband, Steve C. Zippilli; son, Henry Thomas Webb and his wife, Christina; granddaughter, Autumn Skye Webb and many extended family and beloved friends.

A celebration of Dee's life will be held in her honor at 12 Noon on Sunday, June 25, 2017 at R.T. Foard Funeral Home, P.A., 111 S. Queen Street, Rising Sun, MD 21911, where family and friends may visit beginning at 11am.
