Katherine Joyce Campbell-Sipes, 72, formerly of Lake County, Indiana, peacefully passed away Monday, October 31, 2022, at Hickory Creek of Peru.

Katherine was born on December 31, 1949, in Oklahoma to Dorothy Campbell and the late James Campbell. She was preceded in death by her husband, Leroy Sipes.

She graduated from Purdue University Northwest in Hammond, Indiana and was a member of St. Thomas More Catholic Church in Munster, Indiana. Katherine was an avid gardener, constantly tending to her favorite: bleeding hearts. She will be fondly remembered by her friends and family as a lover of animals, especially cardinals and her favorite pet cat, Snowy, and for her love of music and dancing.
