May 1, 1927 — April 2, 2024


Marie Mae Phillips (nee Furman), age 96, passed away peacefully on April 2, 2024.  She was devoted to family first, above everything else.  She cherished all the get-togethers at her house every holiday or just for Sunday spaghetti.  And sending everyone home with leftovers for days.  She would never miss one of her children’s (or most grandchildren’s) athletic events, always there cheering them on.  She always had a smile on her face even during difficult times.


Marie is survived by her children, David Phillips of FL., Daniel Phillips, and John (Cindy) Phillips.  She was a loving grandmother to Jennifer (Mark) Wasil, Douglas (Kristin) Phillips, Geoff (Brin) Phillips, Danielle Phillips, Corrinne (Jacob) Burley, Rhianna (Joseph) Carrero, and Cailyn Phillips.  Great grandmother of Kayla, Olivia, Isaac, Anderson, Leo and expected Kyson.


She was preceded in death by parents John and Maria Furman (nee Bockja); her children Ken Phillips, Susan (Jim) Kotaska and siblings, Irene Salapa, Agnes Uhlik, William Furman, Stephen Furman, and Marcee Sarpansky.  


In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting memorial donations to be made in Marie’s name to Remembrance Hospice of Medina, 3725 Medina Rd. #113, Medina, OH  44256. 


A private Celebration of Life will be held at Carlson Funeral Home & Cremation Services in Brunswick at a later date.  Following the Celebration of life, she will be laid to rest at East Lawn Cemetery.
