Karen Denise Bullock Tipton unexpectedly passed away on December 20th, 2021 at the age of 66 while at Regional Medical Center in Anniston, AL. Denise is survived by her parents Bonnie Bullock and Billy Joe Bullock; her brother, Randy Bullock (Sunaree); her husband, Alan Tipton; her daughters, Allison Killian (Stacey) and Lesley Medders (Max); her grandchildren, Raegan Waits (Seth), Reanna Medders, and Brock Killian and many other family and friends. Denise was born on August 12th, 1955 to Bonnie Bullock and Billy Joe Bullock in Anniston,AL. Denise was a graduate of Lincoln High School before graduating from ST Vincent’s School Of Nursing in Birmingham, AL in 1977 as a Registered Nurse. Denise followed her passion after graduation, and continued practicing as a Registered Nurse for the next 44 years, until her unexpected passing. Denise spent the vast majority of her nursing career at Diversicare of Oxford (formerly Golden Living). The love and compassion that Denise had for the elderly and patients at Diversicare, lead her to stay for the four decades that she practiced nursing. In those 44 years her Co-workers became like family rather than just Co-Workers. On April 26,1974 she married her husband of 47 years, Alan D. Tipton. In 1975 and 1979 the couple would welcome their daughters Allison and Lesley into their life. Denise and Alan were residents of Oxford,AL for the majority of their lives together. Of the many accomplishments in Denise’s life her most prize possession was being a Nana to her grandchildren. Nana would never miss a Ball game or Band Competition as it brought her pure joy to see her grandchildren doing something they loved. Nana loved Raegan, Reanna, and Brock more than words could ever describe. Denise will be remembered by many as a caring, compassionate, and loving nurse, wife, mother, nana, and soon to be great grandmother of Rollyns Denise Waits. A visitation service is scheduled for December 27th, 2021 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at Miller Funeral Home in Oxford.
