Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Claire Sheppard (Foster) Phillips, 81, of Peachtree Corners, Georgia, left her earthly life on September 13, 2016. A private family memorial will be held. Her cremains will be interred at a later date at the Jefferson Barracks National VA Cemetery in St. Louis, Missouri. Ms. Phillips was born November 26, 1934 in Atlanta, Georgia. She proudly served in the United States Navy during the 1950’s and after military service, she went on to retire from the United States Postal Service in 1996. After a long life of working, she enjoyed traveling and spending time with her family. She was an avid reader and a lover of trivia. She could find humor in just about anything. She also enjoyed tending to her garden and listening to all genres of music. Her outdoor oasis of water fountains and plants gave her great joy and serenity. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her, particularly her devoted caregiver and daughter, Janet Phillips; daughter, Judy (Bob) De Reus; daughter, Kathy Shaw; son, Alex Phillips; granddaughter, Lorraine (Johnny) Mitchell; grandson, David De Reus; granddaughter, G. Nicole Shaw; great-granddaughter, Sarah Landucci; and great-grandson, JD Mitchell. She was preceded in death by her sister, Mary Foster; and brothers, Robert Foster, Frank Foster and Johnny Foster.
