Barbara R. Phillips, aged 89, of Wyoming, went to with her Lord on Tuesday, January 23, 2018. Barbara was a very involved member of the American Legion Post 258 Women's Auxiliary serving as president and chapeau. She was once honored with the Unsung Hero award, as well. She was also a member of the Kent Salon 322, 8 and 40 for 31 years. She volunteered at the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans especially around the holidays. Crossword puzzles were a passion, she enjoyed bowling, sang in the church choir, and was known for her fabulous potato salad which was requested at many family reunions. Her husband, Charles H.; daughter, Beth Phillips; sons, Michael and Charles; preceded her in death. She will be lovingly remembered by her children, Douglas Phillips, Brian Phillips, Lesli (Christopher) Nyland; grandsons, Bart, Joseph, Cody Phillips; four great grandchildren; special aunt, Bunny Costello; and many nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be held 12 noon Saturday, January 27, 2018 at Banner of Christ Church, 1111 68th Street, SW; with Rev. Michael Caley officiating. Interment in Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens. Contributions in memory of Barbara may be made to Hospice of Michigan. The family will greet visitors on Friday from 6 to 8 pm at Stroo Funeral Home.

Leslie, I’m sorry about your mom. She lived a long life, and sounds like she kept busy. I remember her being so sweet and gentle. Lots of memories with you and Brian, the Gustellas and the Merrymans. Hope you are well, take care.
