Darla Rippee Gregory
Pontotoc - Ms. Darla Gregory, 59, went home to be with Jesus on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 at North MS Medical Center in Tupelo, MS. Darla was born on September 14, 1960 in Washington County, MS to William Bennie Rippee and Maggie Slaughter Rippee. Darla was a humble woman who was a wonderful daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend. She was a Christian woman and Christ’s love was evident in how she lived her life every day. She also had an unprecedented work ethic and spent nearly 40 years working in the furniture industry.
Away from work, Darla spent most of her time watching her boys play ball and spending quality time with the family and grandchildren, who were the joy of her life.
A service celebrating her life will be at Noon on Saturday, November 9, 2019 at By Faith Baptist Church in Pontotoc with Bro. Darren Fowler officiating. Visitation will be from 10 AM - Noon at By Faith prior to the service.
Survivors include her sons, Micheal Gregory(Karen) of Pontotoc and Parker Gregory(Kelly) of Tupelo; her brothers, Elbert Rippee of Greenville and Terry Rippee of Byhalia; her sisters, Patsy Robinson of Greenville, Carol Nanney(Joe) of Greenwood, and Joyce Alderman(Barry) of Greenville; 6 grandchildren, Devin Carter, Ashley Swords, Anna Gregory, Hayes Gregory, Drew Gregory, and Mason Gregory; and a host of nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; her sister Frances Gallagher; and her 3 brothers Bill “Dub” Rippee, David Rippee, and Marty Rippee.
