Charles and Ona Phipps. She dedicated her life to loving her family and serving the Lord. Among her many joys in life were gardening, traveling to the Great Smoky Mountains, visiting relatives in Alabama, and searching for new recipes in her numerous cookbooks. She dearly loved to have all her family together, cooking for them, having lots of fun and laughing while playing Dirty Santa at Christmas time. She faithfully attended River of Life Church, formerly Muse Memorial Church for 33 years, where she loved to worship the Lord with her church family. Odessa and Ed, her second husband, were avid daily Mall walkers where they met many friends and wonderful people.
