Barbara Crane Lippe Passes Away on July 19, 2020 PDF Print Email


By the family

Jul. 22, 2020: #BLESSED is how Barbara Crane Lippe described her life, which ended peacefully on July 19, 2020, surrounded by her devoted daughters and Havanese, Chica.

Born in Manhattan on July 20, 1927, Barbara moved to Bronxville with her husband Vincent Stuyvesant Lippe (d. 1980), where she happily resided for 64 years.


Beyond raising and adoring her two daughters and doting on her granddaughter, Barbara was known for her love and care of dogs, her cars and motorcycles, her passion for tennis, golf, fishing, bridge, and the great outdoors. Her baking skills remain legendary as she often arrived at a party, doctor’s appointment, bank, or golf course with a fresh batch of homemade goodies.

But mostly, Barbara was known for her heart and endlessly giving nature, doing small kindnesses, providing words of encouragement, visiting a nursing home, doing airport runs, or shopping for others.

Barbara is survived by her dog Chica, daughters Pamela Lippe (Bronxville, NY) and Patricia Lippe Davis (NYC) and “sons-in-love” Guy Morris and Russell Davis, grandchildren Max Morris and Blair Davis; nephew and niece Jonathan Crane and Stephanie Crane Faison, as well as scores of friends and “adopted children.”

In lieu of flowers, consider a donation to one of her favorite charities: Guiding Eyes for the Blind, the ASPCA, NRDC, or Children’s Village.
