Obituary for Irene Grace Phillips

Her Legacy… Irene Grace Phillips, 94, passed away March 3, 2019. She was born on January 8, 1925, in Canton, Ohio to Leo Danner and Leona (Berg) Danner. Irene married William Phillips on June 14, 1947, in Canton, Ohio. Irene was a retired 2nd grade school teacher, primarily teaching at Sayre Elementary School in South Lyon, Michigan. She loved working with the children and teaching them music as a second language, forming the Tutti Flutti Band. Music was a very big part of her life; she was also part of the choir at Holy Spirit Church. She was a member of the Holy Spirit Women’s Guild and St. Vincent DePaul Society. Irene was a devoted and faithful Catholic, and felt a sense of family with her parish. She was also known as being a wonderful neighbor. If anyone did something nice for her, she would return the favor by baking pie.



Her Family… Irene will be missed by her children, Pat (Dennis) Chapman, Thomas (Gini) Wingard-Phillips, Robert Phillips, and Susan Phillips of Edmonds, WA; sister, Leonora Smith; nine grandchildren; eleven great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her husband William Phillips, parents Leo and Leona Danner, her son Ronald Phillips, sister Dorothy Meyers, and brothers Paul and Joseph Danner.



Her Farewell… Irene’s family and friends will gather for her Community Farewell to be held on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at Holy Spirit Catholic Church. Viewing will begin at 11 a.m. with a rosary at 11:30 a.m. Mass at 1 p.m. and Father John Rocus will serve as celebrant.
