Hazel Shelton Phillips, 91, passed away on Sunday, July 25, 2021, at her home in Christiansburg. She was born in Indian Valley, Floyd County, Va. on Feb. 7, 1930, to Kyle Erring Shelton and Josie Alice Turpin Shelton. On July 22, 1950, Hazel married Robie Lee Phillips. In 1963 (almost 13 years later) they were blessed with a child, Ricky Lee Phillips.
Hazel was proud to be a homemaker, wife, and mother. She was happy to be gardening, growing flowers, cooking, canning, or quilting with ladies at her church. She was an active member of the Harbor of Hope Pentecostal Holiness Church in Christiansburg for over 60 years.
Hazel was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, and five of her siblings.
Survivors include her son and daughter-in-law, Ricky and Tanya Phillips of Christiansburg; sisters Zula Saul of Fairlawn, Irene Dalton of Riner, and Louise (Cobern) Quesenberry of Floyd County. She also leaves many other relatives and friends to cherish her memory.
Special acknowledgments go to her caregivers, Dr. Jared March and Dr. Caleb Cutherall, and the staff at Intrepid Hospice.
The family received friends on Wednesday, July 28, 2021, at the Mullins Funeral Home in Radford, followed by services with Pastor Richard Kingrea officiating. Interment followed in Highland Memory Gardens in Dublin.
Hazel will be missed dearly by all of us here on Earth, but she was welcomed by all in Heaven with great joy.
An angel has gone home.
