Elaine Eleanora Phillips,74, of Butler passed away surrounded by her daughters on Thursday, April 21, 2022. She was born August 25, 1947 in Pittsburgh, PA to her late parents Frank and Cecelia (Flis) Guenther. She was the wife of George T Phillips since their marriage on May 26, 1973; mother of Robert (Karen) Christine, and Melissa (Matthew); grandmother of seven grandchildren Shad (Megan), Brad (Kayla), Robert, Mike, Kylie (Colby), Nathan, and Andrew; and great grandmother of Graison and Holland. She had hopes to meet the newest great granddaughter twins (Harley and Harper) that are due in May. She had many talents and a huge heart. She worked for Hampton Township School District as a cook for 27 years and retired from there in 2009. For a short time, she enjoyed retirement with her husband, kids, grandkids, and other family members by going on vacations and spending quality time together. However, she wasn’t done working yet. In 2014 she started working as a bus monitor for Valley Lines in Butler. She made many friends and loved the kids and their families that she got to work with. Elaine was an amazing woman, wife, mother, Nana and friend. No one knows why bad things happen to the best of people and we may never know. She was called home to be reunited with her parents, siblings, and friends she lost along the way. She will be deeply missed but not forgotten, forever. Family and friends received on Sunday, April 24, 2022 from 12-2 PM at the SPENCER D. GEIBEL FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION SERVICES, 140 NEW CASTLE RD, BUTLER, PA 16001. WWW.SPENCERDGEIBEL.COM.
