Obituary of Judith Ann Phillips

Please share a memory of Judith to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Judith Ann Phillips was born on August 20, 1944, in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. She was one of four children born to the union of Oliver and Hilda Harmon.

In February of 1960, at just 16 years of age, Judith married the love of her life, William H. Phillips.  Their love stood the test of time as they celebrated fifty-three years of marriage.  The couple were blessed with three children, all before she reached the age of 21!  Judith proudly cared for her husband and children as a homemaker.  She was extremely proud of the adults her children became.

Judith loved spending time with her husband.  Much time was enjoyed outdoors off-roading in their jeep and dancing whenever they had the chance. Judith was also proud of her strong German heritage.  She liked preparing special dishes from the “Old Country” that her mother had passed down to her.  Judith loved to go shopping and became quite the self-taught artist and do it yourselfer (DIYer).  To know Judith was to love Judith, she didn’t have a mean bone in her body and spread love everywhere she went.

Judith Ann Phillips, age 79, of Monroe, Michigan passed away at 2:24pm on Tuesday; November 22, 2023, at ProMedica Monroe Regional Hospital. Her passing was preceded by her parents; her husband; and two sisters: Janet and Jane.  To cherish her memory she leaves three children, Sue (Chet) Rizzo, William S. Phillips, and Scott J. Phillips, a brother: Oliver Harmon, eight grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren. 

No public services are planned at this time.  Her care has been entrusted to Merkle Funeral Service, North Monroe; 2442 North Monroe Street, Monroe, Michigan 48162 (734) 384-5185.  Cremation has taken place through the on-site crematory, Covenant Cremation of Erie, Michigan.
