Lew Hippen

Lewellyn Albert Hippen was born on November 19, 1928 to Albert and Cora (Neuberger) Hippen in Klemme, Iowa. After farming for several years, Lew began working at the Hardy grain elevator. The family moved to Thor where Lew later became the owner/manager of Thor Grain Company. He was an active member in the Thor Ullensvang Lutheran Church.

Lew felt that his family was the center of his life. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather – always ready with a word of encouragement or wise counsel.

Lew was called home on December 12, 2013.
