Anita Joyce Phillips

May 26, 1935 — January 19, 2022

Anita Joyce Phillips, devoted mother, “Nana” to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and friend to many, held hands again with her beloved husband, Herbert Phillips, in Heaven, on the morning of Wednesday, January 19, 2022. She was 86 years old.

Anita was born to the late Trammell Ray and Clara O’Dillon Aycock on May 26, 1935. She was a proud graduate of the University of Georgia and retired from Civil Service at Robins Air Force Base as an accounting clerk. A longtime member of First United Methodist Church in Warner Robins, Anita was devout in her faith for her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She enjoyed shopping, traveling, working on puzzles, playing the piano, and just spending time with the family she adored. Anita’s family and friends will miss her each and every day until they see each other again.

She is survived by her loving children, Susan P. Conner (Bill) of Hawkinsville, Alan Phillips of Warner Robins and Mark Phillips of Perry; grandchildren, Ben Churcher (Amber), Eric Churcher (Leigh Ann) and Brooke Conner; and great-grandchildren, Brayden and Cole Churcher and Reagan and Emory Churcher.

Anita’s family will receive friends on Saturday, January 22, 2022, from 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. at First United Methodist Church in Warner Robins. A funeral service will immediately follow at 2:00 p.m. at the church. Anita will be laid to rest in Magnolia Park Mausoleum following the service.

In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully suggests memorial donations be given in memory of Anita to First United Methodist Church in Warner Robins, 205 N. Davis Dr., Warner Robins, GA 31093.

For friends unable to attend at this time, the service will be streamed live via the McCullough Funeral Home Facebook page at www.facebook.com/mcculloughfuneralhome/live/.
