Ann Marie Phillips
December 15, 1922 – June 11, 2018
Ann Marie Phillips, 95, passed away in hospice care at CC Young in Dallas, Texas on June 11, 2018 at approximately 6 a.m. Known as G.G by her grandchildren, she was born in Chicago, Illinois in December, 1922, and married Arthur James "Bud" Phillips in 1943. They shared the same birthday, one year apart in age. They moved to Dallas, Texas after retirement and were married for 49 years until Bud's passing in 1992. She was also preceded in death by her younger daughter, Kimberly Ann Godke, and her only sibling, brother Tom Hopkins. She was known as a wise and gentle woman who deeply loved her family and close friends, and rarely argued with anyone about anything. If she disagreed with something you said, she would simply say, "Oh, do you think so?" If she did not like something you did, she might give you an "Icy Stare" with her bright blue eyes. Ann is survived by her older daughter, Kathleen Ellen Barry, four grandchildren: Jeffrey Sean Barry, Kelly Ann Galloway, Stephen Douglas Godke, and Ryan Christopher Godke. She is also survived by six great grandchildren: Audrey Layne Galloway, Brady Thomas Galloway Lucas Thomas Barry, Blake Hodges Barry, Ashley Ryan Barry, and Savannah Grace Godke. In addition, she is survived by a niece, Doreen Phillips, and three nephews: Timothy Hopkins, Michael Hopkins, and Bob Phillips. Ann will be interred at Glendale Memorial Park in Pekin, Illinois where her beloved husband, Bud, and beloved daughter, Kim, are at rest. She will be missed by all those who knew and loved her.

Ann and I met at a computer class for older people at SMU twenty years ago. From the outset there was a chemistry between us and we developed a friendship I will cherish forever. We enjoyed many lunches at various restaurants, lingering over a glass of wine and good conversation. One of our favorite places was Alfonso's where the waitresses seemed to appreciate our friendship; if I went in there without Ann, I was asked where she was. When Ann was in search of a new physician, I recommended Dr. Pizette and she found him to be a caring and capable doctor. When I needed transportation after cataract surgery, Ann was right there to drive me. In 2001 Ann and I joined a SMU alumni group and traveled to Sorrento, Italy, where we had a delightful time. The last meal we had together was about five years ago; two old ladies enjoying one another's company, not realizing it was for the last time. Ann, I will miss you. Love, Jane
