Julieta "Judy" J. Phillips
October 28, 1928 - March 18, 2017
Julieta “Judy” J. Phillips was born in São Miguel Island in Portugal on October 28, 1928. She was one of 12 siblings. When Judy was 24 she met and married her tall, dark, and handsome Air Force husband, Herbert D. Phillips. The two lived all over the United States and, along the way, adopted their two children: Paul D. Phillips and Jennifer J. Iverson. When Herb retired from the military, the family settled in Oregon. As years went by, the family grew adding four grandchildren Stefani Iverson, Bradley Iverson, Jessica Iverson, and Austin Iverson and 3 great-granddaughters Lilia, Alexis, and Paisley who were her heart’s greatest joy.
On March 18th, surrounded by her loved ones, Judy passed after fighting for many years with congestive heart failure. Her family takes comfort in knowing that Judy has rejoined her husband who preceded her in death.
In lieu of flowers or gifts, the family asks that donations are made in Judy’s name to either breast cancer research or the American Heart Association.
A Funeral Mass will be held Wednesday, 2:00 PM, March 29, 2017 at St. Joseph Catholic Church. Private Family Interment will be at. City View Cemetery.
