Ms. Mickey Jane Pippin died unexpectedly in Austin, TX on July 28th, 2017 at the age of 67.
Mickey is survived by her daughter Courtney Nicole Pippin-Mathur, son in law Saurabh Mathur , grandchildren Kiran, Sachin, Arjun and her daughter, Tara Rae(Pippin) Barbiere, son in law, Marc Barbiere and Madeline Rae. Surviving sisters include Ray Nell Colville of Rusk, TX and Mary Pearl "Dit" Holder of Jacksonville, TX. Survived by numerous nieces and nephews and extended family.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Rev. James Ray Pippin and Ora Dee Pippin, her sisters Jo Ann Dement and Bobbie Harper and her son in law, Mickael.
Mickey was born October 27th, 1949 in Jacksonville TX to Rev. James Ray Pippin and Ora Dee Pippin. She graduated from Rusk High School. She had a distinguished 31 year career with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.
Mickey was born a bit wild and overcame an early onset of scoliosis to raise her two daughters to be as strong, independent and sassy as her. She loved to travel, both alone and with her daughter, Tara. (She also traveled to Utah once with Courtney but we don't talk about that very often.) She loved to read, especially about Vikings and we hope she is sailing with her Viking crew and beloved pet Fritzie now.

Viewing will begin on Monday, July 31, 2017 and friends are cordially invited to visit with the family from 5 to 7 o'clock in the evening at Autry Funeral Home, Jacksonville.
