Obituary of Pauline Phillips


Pauline Phillips, 75, of Gumboro passed away from this earth to her place in the Kingdom of God on September 3, 2018.  She was a vibrant woman who served in many roles during her life including being owner/operator of a poultry farm, and extensive career in the Auxiliary Member of Gumboro Vol. Fire Company serving 44 years and holding many office including President, Treasurer and other service offices.  She was a member of Bethel United Methodist Church, and also attended Gumboro Wesleyan Church.  She also retired as a Delaware State Employee from the Millsboro school.  Friends and family report she was the most wonderful person anyone could ever meet.  She wanted everyone to get along and her favorite prayer was that everyone would love one another, and that everyone would get saved.

Another joy in her life was her love of cutting grass and listening the radio on the mower.
