Inez Ruth (Webb) Phillips passed away at her home on October 22nd, 2021, at the age of 89. She was born in Tracy on December 19th, 1931, and stayed in Tracy to raise her family. She was the daughter of the late Bertram and Rhoda (Tracy) Webb of Tracy, and beloved wife of the late Ewart Phillips.
Inez is survived by her son, Sonny Phillips (Coleen) of New Maryland and daughters Rhonda Phillips and Francine (Gary) Mersereau of Fredericton Junction, sister Rowena (Carl) Gillett of Wirral, grandchildren Corey (Cynthia) Peterson, Robby (Heather) Peterson, Kristi (Steve) Ewart, Tanner (Jessica) Phillips, Dax Phillips, Drew (Joni) Mersereau, and Joni (David) Burtt. She is also survived by sisters-in-law, Inez Webb and Sandra LeGassie. She was also Nanie Inez to 11 great-grandchildren, and very dear to many special nieces, nephews, neighbours, and friends.
Along with her parents and husband, Inez was predeceased by loving in-laws Stuart and Helene (Nason) Phillips, special aunt Renna Tracy, brothers Tracy Webb and Lyman Webb, sister Marvel Nason, brothers-in-law Max Phillips and Reginald LeGassie.
Inez was an incredible wife, mother, and homemaker for much of her life. Known for her baking and her dry wit, she dedicated her life to the service of others through both her love for her family and her involvement in various ministries in her church and community. She will be remembered by many for her knowledge of local history and her record-keeping, her love of the Toronto Blue Jays, but most of all for the legacy of family and faith she has left behind.
Services will be held for close family and invited friends. Pallbearers will be Corey Peterson, Robby Peterson, Drew Mersereau, Tanner Phillips, Dax Phillips and David Burtt. Honorary pallbearers will be Pat Thomason, Lorna Manning and Vicky Mott.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the CNIB, Diabetes Canada, the Tracy Baptist Church, or donor’s choice of charity.
