The diminutive Tippie Moon, who weighed 102 pounds and wore a size 0 or 1 dress, amazed family and friends with her ability to pack away food without gaining weight.
At Tippie's post-funeral reception, one friend suggested that anyone looking for more food should look in the trunk of Tippie's car. That's where the lifelong resident of Lorain, Ohio, who died of complications from cancer on May 29, 2010, at age 49, usually stashed plates full of food during group gatherings.
One of her favorite annual events was the Taste of the South festival staged by Second Baptist Church of Elyria, Ohio. (Tippie worshipped at Second Baptist of Lorain.)
Coincidentally, pictures from the June 12, 2010, Taste of the South appeared on the front page of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram on June 13, 2010 -- the day on which the "Dash Between" obituary feature on Tippie was published.
