Shirley I Phillips

September 27th, 1936 - March 24th, 2012

Shirley Phillips, was born on September 27, 1936 to Bill and Josephine Phillips in Caldwell Idaho at home. She passed away on Saturday, March 24, 2012. Shirley was born with backward knees and our parents were told that she would never walk and be confined to a wheelchair. Through The Shriners Hospital, Shirley was able to walk but not bend her knees. She never thought of herself as handicapped, working as a lab tech at Carnation Potato for 19 years. On of Shirley’s greatest joys was bowling. She bowled for over 40 years, traveling all over the U.S. with her teammates, who were some of her best friends, to national tournaments. We would like to thank the nurses and aides at Holly who took such good care of her. Also a special thanks to her friend, Joanne Cayler, who visited Shirley every Thursday without fail. Shirley is survived by four brothers Don (Jan) of Alaska, Gordon of California, Jack (Joanne) and Jerry of Washington, two sisters Verna Krenz of Washington and Rosemary (David) Terry of Nampa, sisters-in-law Aloise Phillips of Caldwell and Carol Phillips of Glenns Ferry, brother-in-law Darrell (Jinni) Peterson of Nampa, forty three nieces and nephews and numerous great and great-great nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents, 3 brothers, 4 sisters, two brothers-in-law, one sister-in-law, 5 nephews and one niece. Memorials may be made in Shirley’s name to the Caldwell Bowl youth bowling. Services will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 3904 E. Greenhurst, Nampa, ID, on Thursday, March 29, 2012 at 10:00 AM. Service Information
