Jack and Betty met and fell in love at a barn dance in Mishawaka, Indiana while Jack was on leave from the Marine Corps. They were married on June 18, 1950 at Marine Corps Base, Camp Lejeune, Jacksonville, North Carolina.
Jack went into construction work after leaving the military, so the family moved around a good bit. They eventually settled in Sarasota where Jack formed a very successful construction company of his own. This allowed Betty to dedicate herself exclusively to what was always most important to her, her family.
They moved to Jacksonville following the death of their son, Michael Whipple to be closer to family, especially their grandchildren.
They are predeceased by their son, Michael Whipple and grandson, Christopher Fellows.
Jack and Betty are survived by their children, daughter, Jackie Grant and her husband Greg, son, Steven Whipple and his wife, Shirley, and daughter, Pamela Roncaglione, grandchildren, Steven Whipple Jr. and his wife Jordan, Kristina Peters and her husband, Justin, Elizabeth Grant, Alexandra and Zachary Whipple, great grandchildren, Gabriel Grant and Giovanni and Milania Whipple.
A memorial service for both Jack and Betty will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, March 25th at Calvary United Methodist Church, 112 Blanding Blvd, Orange Park, FL 32073. Their son-in-law, Pastor Greg Grant will officiate. Interments will be in Evergreen Cemetery, 4535 Main Street, Jacksonville, FL 32206
