Your mom was the finest helper and Secretary I ever had, and she made so many of my tasks easier for the eleven years I was pastor at Ballston Spa. She had many skills and a great sense of humor. You did well with her care. I'm grateful.

I first met Mrs. Phillips when I was her newspaper girl. She and Henry were always very nice to me. I reconnected with them when I was a waitress at The Packhorse Restaurant. They came in every Friday night. There was always a table in my section saved for them. We had many great conversations and they were an special part of my life for many years. I am sorry for your loss. She was a special lady .


Marian was a wonderful lady. She always had a kind word for everyone. It was such a pleasure to know her, and see her smiling face and uplifting personality every Sunday morning at Church. She will be truly missed. Prayers for comfort and strength for her family at this time. Rest in Peace Marian, You were a remarkable woman.

Marian was a wonderful lady. She was always so pleasant and she cared so much for others. I missed her at church after she left and am thankful she is at peace.

I remember your mother very well. Your father bowled with my father at Skyway. She was always pleasant and a joy to talk to. Funny story about her I was young and I was getting ready to change my shoes to bowl. I had some holes in my socks and she kind of made fun of me. The next week she showed up with new socks for me and we laughed

Sue, I remember your Mom as a greeter at the church and a neighbor on Rowland St. She was a warm and wonderful person. Our prayers will be with her.

Dear Susan,

So sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother. She was always very nice to me when ever I met her. I remember learning to bowl with Susan and then joining a league at the Ballston Spa bowling establishment where Marian also bowled. She was always very welcoming at the Methodist Church where I was a member for many years until I moved to Middle Grove. She will be one of newest Angels in Heaven now.
