Jean Thomas Phifer
July 22, 1929 – November 11, 2020
Jean Phifer saw the face of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Wednesday November 11, 2020. She is rejoicing and singing glory glory hallelujah! She was 91 years old.
Jean was born in Monroe NC to Bryce and Clara Thomas who were loving and kind parents. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 69 years Neil Phifer and sister Elaine Hilton. What a glorious reunion it was!
She is survived by her two children son Scott Phifer and daughter Marie Childress; a loving brother Carroll Thomas; eight grandchildren Johnathan Phifer, James Phifer, Josh Phifer, Thomas Davis, Chelsie Jones, Ashley Searles, Grant Childress and Harrison Childress and six precious great grandchildren William, Benjamin, Emma, Harper, Mirabelle and Pierce.
Jean was raised on a farm where she helped plow the fields behind a mule named Frank. Oh, the stories she could tell! When she moved to Charlotte in 1948 she worked at Scientific Beauty Salon as a beautician for many years. She was a charter member at Hickory Grove Baptist Church. She gladly served wherever needed. Her greatest gift was to love and serve others. No matter where she went and who she met, she was kind, loving and shared the name of Jesus to everyone.
We are so blessed that she left a legacy of godliness to her children, our children, our grandchildren and generations to come.

Dear Marie and Family:
Your mother was always so sweet, caring and gentle. She was an angel on earth and now an angel in heaven. May she rest in peace and may you find comfort knowing you will see her again in heaven.
Love and miss you, Marie.

Dear Marie and family,
Your mom was a good friend to us over the years. We visited, shared meals, played cards and ate Chick-fil-A Dreamcream. Her joyful attitude, laughter and love for Jesus was wonderful!
We have grieved for her “absence” for many years and celebrate her release to heaven and a new body. She is definitely singing in heaven.

My sweet Aunt Jean is gone to her heavenly home and is now with the love of her life, my Uncle Neal.
 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
