Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Elsie Edith Seivers Phillips of Doraville, GA went to heaven on May 26, 2022. She was born in Clinton, TN on April 20, 1928 to the late Robert and Vivian Shinliver Seivers. In 1942, Elsie answered the call of “Rosie the Riveter” and began working at the Magnet Mills in Clinton. After the war, she married the love of her life, Jim, and found her true passion of becoming a dedicated wife and loving mother. In the early 1980’s, Elsie went to work in housekeeping at The Perimeter North Inn where she quickly rose to become a supervisor, winning many awards for her outstanding service. Elsie accepted all people, was humble to a fault, loved to laugh and loved fearlessly. She will be missed by many.
In addition to her parents, Elsie is preceded in death by husband, James P. (Jim) Phillips; brothers, Clyde Seivers and Donald O. (Duck) Seivers; sisters, Pauline Hendren, Stella Henderson, Fleta Seivers, Wanda Raby, Corrina Wilder and Mary Rose Montgomery.
She is survived by sons, Anthony Perry (Tony) Phillips (Donna); Randy Lee Phillips; Charles Andrew (Andy) Phillips (Angela); and daughter, Sherrie Garmon Miranda (Robert); grandsons, James Tyler Phillips (Jessica) and Sean Eugene Phillips (Klarce); and a host of nieces and nephews.
Special thanks to the Wilder family for your attention, love, and encouragement from afar; Lynda Moerke and the entire Inspire Hospice team and Banika Barnes for your special care and devotion to Elsie in her final months.
