Ninilchik resident Dixine Lee Phillips died Friday, July 20, 2001, at Central Peninsula General Hospital. She was 59.
Memorial services will be at 5 p.m. today at the Assembly of God Church in Ninilchik. Pastor Jim Kruse will officiate. A reception will follow the memorial service at the Ninilchik Senior Center.
Mrs. Phillips was born Nov. 7, 1941, in St. Mary's, Idaho. She was raised and educated through high school there. She moved to Alaska in 1963, residing in Juneau. In 1964, she moved to Anchorage and was a survivor of the earthquake. She moved to Seward in 1972 and to Ninilchik in 1975.
She was a member of the Assembly of God Church in Ninilchik. Her hobbies and special interests included sewing, singing hymns and reading the Bible.
"Throughout her many years of sickness and trials, she was always concerned for the welfare of her friends and family more than herself. She enjoyed her grandchildren and they made her suffering bearable. The love and time spent with her grandchildren enriched and prolonged her life up until the end," her family said. "She will always be remembered most for her role as a loving wife and mother."
Mrs. Phillips is survived by her husband of 29 years, Arnold Phillips; daughters and sons-in-law Ronda and Cheyne Blough and Randi and Daniel Presley; grandchildren Lee, Daulton, Ethan, Ashley and Wesley Blough and Caley Presley; and stepchildren, Steven, Dave, Jeanni and Dan Phillips and their extended families.
The family wishes donations be made to the Ninilchik Ambulance Association, General Delivery, Ninilchik, AK 99639 for its many successful efforts over the years in prolonging her life.
