Obituary for Rebecca Ann Phillips

Our sunshine went to heaven on January 27, 2018. Her death was unexpected and we are devastated.

Rebecca came to us on December 8, 1986, in Danville, Va. She has always been pure joy to all who knew her. Her bright smile and cheerfulness would light up any room.

Rebecca was an honor graduate from GWHS in 2005 and went on to Virginia Tech graduating cum laude in 2008. She then went to Campbell Law School and received her Juris Doctorate in 2011.

After graduation she accepted a job at Pitt County Courts in Greenville, N.C. as an Assistant District Attorney. She stayed there five years, making good friends and building a great reputation as a Domestic Violence ADA. When a job became available in the Guilford County Courts in Greensboro, she decided to move back closer to home and family. The past 2 ½ years have been a blessing for her to live with her parents as she was saving money to buy her own home. We thank God for that time.

Rebecca leaves behind her parents, Bobby and Jerri Lynn Phillips; her brother, Chris and wife, Jaclyn; her nephew, Chace and her niece, Amelia. Her very special friend, Lily, will be lost without her. She also leaves behind numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. Greeting her in heaven are her grandparents, James and Jerleen Yeatts, and Tom and Vera Phillips; her uncle, David Yeatts; and her cousin, Phillip Wright.

Rebecca accepted Christ as her personal Savior at an early age and was an active member of Third Avenue Congregational Christian Church where she was active in children’s programs, youth group and teaching. A lifelong memory for her was a mission trip to Canada.

Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018, at Third Ave. Congregational Christian Church with Reverend Freddy Vicks and Pastor Shevi Sloane officiating. The family will receive visitors at the church on Wednesday evening, Jan. 31, 2018, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Burial will be at Highland Burial Park.

Donations can be made to Haven of the Dan River Region for Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, PO Box 878, Danville, VA 24543.
