A Cleburne County native, Mrs. Phillips was born on May 24, 1935, the daughter of Tom F. and Evie Richardson Farlow. She graduated from Ranburne High School in 1953. After graduation, Mrs. Phillips worked at Sears in Atlanta and Charleston, S. C., for more than 30 years before retiring. After retiring, she enjoyed gardening and caring for her flowers. She cared for and helped with other family members until a stroke caused her own disablement.
Mrs. Phillips was a former member of Macedonia Baptist Church in Ranburne; however, while a resident at Presbyterian Village, she worshipped on Sunday with the congregation there. She was preceded in death by her parents; one son, Lance Phillips; sisters, Essie Cole, Eva Cole, Myrtle Bradbary, and Myrtice Potter; and brother, Earl Farlow.
