Lisa Ann Phillips went Home to be with the Lord on July 9, 2019. She passed away peacefully at home in Aurora, Colorado, surrounded by family.

Lisa was born on March 28, 1962 in Butte, Montana, and in October of 1979 she married the love of her life, Tom Phillips. After he joined the Army, the two had many incredible adventures together, including witnessing the eruption of Mount St. Helens, touring German castles, and experiencing first-hand the raw power of Oklahoma windstorms.

A dedicated mother of three rambunctious boys first and foremost, Lisa was perhaps known best for her love for others. Throughout her life she worked various jobs that allowed her to care for animals, children, and the elderly, and she described becoming a grandmother in 2000 as one of the happiest moments of her life.

Strong in her faith and resolute in her principles, Lisa was a role model for many. Shortly after she and Tom moved to Aurora in 2008, she joined Calvary Chapel in Bennett and continued to grow in the Lord.

Lisa is survived by her husband Tom; her three sons and their wives Eric and Nina Phillips, Josh and Torie Phillips, and Zach and Darcie Phillips; four grandchildren Virginia, Ryan, Rachel, and Abigail Phillips; and many siblings, nephews, and nieces.

In life, Lisa touched others with her bright, optimistic, and positive personality, and she wanted to maintain that spirit even in death; as such, she requested that attendees of her memorial service be encouraged to celebrate her life by wearing color if they so desired.

Due to my work; we seldom saw one another , but when we did... we talked at length. We had a lot in common. ( having all sons / animal lover / chatty / faith ). So warm and friendly that I instantly felt comfortable in her presence. I’m glad she lived her life to the fullest. My heart aches so much for her family.
I’m sure you will all be reunited in heaven someday. Maggi Ingle

I first met Lisa at a Bible study before her cancer diagnosis. We spent three years as close friends while she battled her illness. I wish I had met her many years before because we had such great fun. We spent long hours talking and laughing, making jokes, doing crafts. I found her to be a bright light, a sweet loving soul and loved her like a sister. She was a true blessing in my life and told her that I would see her later.

Liza was my friend who I felt very close to. She was always very upbeat, smiling and so easy to talk too. She loved Jesus with all her heart. She never had a bad thing say about anyone. I will miss her, and the love she had for everyone. I always thought of you as an angel. Rest in peace my dear friend, I will never forget you!!

We meet in June 1978, we both were 16 at that time. In march of 1979 Lisa was determined to have professional photographs taken of us for her birthday. I ask why? She answered "You are mine Forever". She was right, We married October 27th 1979 and never looked back.
