Edna Orr Phillips, 91, our precious “Nan” went home on Tuesday, February 23, 2021. She came face to with the Master, and she was able to give her nephew Gary, who had gone on 38 years earlier on the same day, a message from his mom. Willamae said, “Nan, find Gary and tell him Mama loves him and misses him so much!”
We will keep Nan in our hearts and cherish precious memories. We will always remember the battle she fought but be assured of the glorious homecoming she shared with many loved ones. She now walks with strength, hears with clearness, and talks with clarity. We will remember all the good times, the travels she enjoyed, and, if we continue to think of her, she will have never left us.
Edna was the daughter of the late Dave and Delia Carringer Orr. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband, Clyde Phillips, and her brothers, Pearlie, Dee, Ronald, Golman, Delmas, Donald, and Vincent Orr.
