Erin Lynn Nippert, 29, died the morning of Sunday, Jan. 20, 2019.
Erin was born Sept. 27, 1989, in Ashland, Kentucky.

In 1997, she moved to Virginia Beach following the death of her parents, William “Bill” Nippert and Elizabeth “Liz” Courson. Erin graduated from Frank W. Cox High school in 2007 and later attended Tidewater Community College.

Erin is survived by her son, Clayton Howard Oswald; grandmother, Sarah R. Courson; aunt, Virginia Johnson; three siblings, Casey Nippert and Adaline and Henry Johnson; and niece and three nephews, Levi, Skyler, Rolan and Ashton.

Erin was a kind-hearted, beautiful mother who loved to make others happy. She loved animals and saw the good in all things. Erin had a passion for puzzles, movies and would spend free time with Clayton taking animals out to play at the local SPCA. Her biggest joy in life was being a mother. Erin had a gentle heart, a genuine sense of humor and more strength than words can describe.

A memorial service will be held from 2 to 4 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 27, at H.D. Oliver Funeral Home, 2002 Laskin Road. Following the service, friends and family are invited to come together from 4 to 5:30 p.m. for food, drink and fond memories at her aunt’s home.

A GoFundMe account has been established, all donations will go toward the cost of services as well as the future needs of Clayton.
