Athens StoryCorps: Mimi Vickers and Allyn Rippin


When Allyn Rippin was a young teenager, her mother, Mimi Vickers, and her step-father moved her away from her comfort zone and out onto a farm.

Today, Rippin loves to visit her mom on the farm, and in this conversation, the women talk about what the farm came to mean to the family and how it has ultimately brought them closer together.

StoryCorps Athens stories were recorded locally at the StoryCorps mobile booth at the Athens-Clarke County Library in the fall of 2018. StoryCorps is part of a national initiative to record and preserve the stories of everyday people.
