Marie Tippit will visit Thursday, Nov. 15 in the Civic Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. to recall her memories of the tragic assassination, where she lost more than president Kennedy.

A woman with direct ties to the John F. Kennedy assassination will speak at the Allen Public Library to share her tales and experiences of that fateful day. Marie Tippit will visit Thursday, Nov. 15 in the Civic Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. to recall her memories of the assassination and her own tragic loss.

A widow with words, Marie Tippit was the wife of officer J.D. Tippit, who was shot and killed by Kennedy’s assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, not long after Kennedy’s own death. At 89 years old, she returns to Allen to relive the day, Nov. 22, 1963.

The event is free of charge and open to any who go to the library for the presentation. The civic auditorium is located on the first floor of the library in the north-eastern corner of the lobby.
