August 8, 1945 - May 8, 2017
Gail Mary Phillips was born to Delores and Arthur Conlan on August 8, 1945 in Remer, MN where she was raised on a beautiful resort her parents owned and then moved onto bigger and better things after graduation when she moved to Chicago, IL.
She was introduced to the city life which she so much LOVED… She lived and worked in the city for a couple years before heading out to a new adventure in Joliet, IL were she would meet her husband of 40+years Daryl Phillips. They raised their daughters along with many others, their home was open to all some not even blood but definitely family.
Mom loved life and animals especially her Aba and Fluffy and was always the life of the party! She lived to turn up until she got older and had no choice but to settle down. Her aura would light up a room with vibrancy and laughter; she was just so full of life and most definitely lived it to the fullest of her abilities.
She is survived by her daughters Deborah and Darylyn, grandchildren Tiantae, Antwanette, Trishanna, Tayshree and Trianna, great grandchildren CJ, Mi’Cyah, Cariya, Colby, Landon, Chase, Cali, Levi, Major, Shanell and Mason, sister Shirley, Sister in laws Northa, Cheryl and Ruby, Son in laws Colby, Leon and Lee, along with many others who would be glad to call her Momma Gail. She will be greatly missed!
