DOROTHY ANN PHILLIPS Our beloved Mother, Grand mother, Great- grand mother, Sister, Aunt, Cousin, and Friend walked through the Gates of Heaven on June 10, 2013, into the arms of Jesus Christ, as well as the love of her life, her husband of 55 years, Howard William Phillips. Dorothy was born in Mason City, Iowa on May 23, 1933 to Bernard Harry and Doris Audrey Pixley. When Dorothy was three years old, she and her family moved to Alhambra, California where she resided until she boarded the SS Lurline for a visit to Honolulu in 1954. That visit developed in to a love affair with the islands and the decision to make Hawaii her home for the next 59 years. Dorothy was predeceased by her Husband, retired Hawaiian Airlines Pilot, Captain Howard W. Phillips, son, Patrick William Phillips, parents, Bernard H and Doris A. Pixley, and sister, Shirley Jean Bonham. She is survived by her children Roy Edward Phillips II (Betsy), Cynthia Ann Seminara (Thomas), Sandra Dee Willand (Michael), Paul Bernard Phillips (Lia), Doris Leilani Zirbes (Christopher), Step-Daughter Sharon Kay Marich (Milan), 16 Grandchildren, 9 Great- grand children, brother Bernard Pixley, sister Ruth Lowrey, and cousin Marion Dearmin. A celebration of her life will be held at Ohana Baptist Church – 2879 Paa Street, on July 2, 2013, with a visitation at 4:30 pm and a service to follow at 5:30 pm. Being the cheerful person she was, it is requested that you honor her spirit by including her favorite colors of blue or green in your attire.
