Angela 'Bert' Piper
PRINCETON — Angela Alberta "Bert" (Maupin) Piper, 87, of Princeton passed away Friday, June 28, 2013, at Perry Memorial Hospital in Princeton with family present.
Bert was a lifelong homemaker and treasured wife, mother and grandmother. Bert was also a devout parishioner of St. Louis Catholic Church in Princeton.
Bert was born Aug. 17, 1925, in Indiantown Township, near Tiskilwa, to Owen C. and Virginia M. (Livers) Maupin. She attended Jamison School in rural Tiskilwa, Tiskilwa High School and graduated from Princeton High School in 1943. She worked a local "five and dime store" in Princeton where she proudly made bows and worked behind the candy counter — it was at this candy county where she first met her cherished husband. She later worked in the administrative office of Pioneer Hi-Bred in Princeton. She married the love of her life, Robert Rex "Bob" Piper, on Sept. 19, 1945, in the St. Louis Catholic Church parsonage. Bert assisted Bob in operating their family farm located near Five Points, northeast of Princeton. Many treasured memories were made raising their family on the farm. As one of 10 children, a mother of four, Bert's life was devoted to her family and to her community. She was deeply loved by her family and will be greatly missed.
