Alice Tabea (Krause) Phillips began her life on this earth February 21, 1928, in Detroit, Michigan, as
the daughter of Gerhard T.O. and Dorothy A.C. (Fuelling) Krause. Ever the enthusiastic singer, on
May 23 rd , 2019, Alice joined the choir of heavenly angels.
She leaves behind, her loving husband of 70 years, Gerhardt L. Phillips, of Manistee, and eight
children, Mark (Cathy) Phillips, of Ferndale, MI, Linda (Clay) Arnold, of Oswego, IL, Gere (Chris)
Phillips of Pollock, ID, Holly (Glen) McPheeters of Fair Play, SC, Matt (Julie) Phillips of Manistee,
Rev. Tim (Kim) Phillips, of Des Moines, IA, Rev. Tom (Beverly) Phillips, of Jacksonville, IL, Joel
(Rose) Phillips, of Beresford, SD.
Remaining to treasure many wonderful memories of time spent with her are 17 Grandchildren and 12
Great- Grandchildren. She is also survived by two sisters, Ruth Porter of Roscommon, MI and Carol
Mallison of Kodak, TN. She was predeceased by her brother Gilbert Krause of Thompsonville, MI and
Granddaughter, Moriah Phillips, of Jacksonville, IL.
After graduating from Pershing High School, in Detroit and attending Wayne State University, she
was employed by The Detroit Bank for several years. On April 23 rd , 1949, she and Gerhardt married
at Epiphany Lutheran church, in Detroit, the same church where she was baptized and confirmed. An
avid reader and gardener, she was also very active in her children’s schools and in the Lutheran
Church Missouri Synod. Upon retirement, Gerhardt and Alice owned and operated the Fisherman’s
Center in Manistee. They also traveled around the United States with Laborers for Christ, helping to
build 29 churches. An accomplished seamstress, Alice worked with the women of Trinity Lutheran
Church over the years to create hundreds of quilts that were then distributed around the world by
Lutheran World Relief.
Always ready with a song, on her lips and in her heart, Alice gave freely of her smiles and hugs. She
instilled a legacy of Christian faith in her family that will be passed on for generations.
Proverbs 31:28-31 “ Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:
“Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.”
“So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will
take your joy from you.”
John 16:22 ESV

My condolences to the family.... Wishing you all peace to bring you comfort, courage to face the days ahead, and loving memories to forever hold in your heart. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I’m so sorry I wasn’t able to make it, and wish I were there to comfort you Jeff. Stay, and be strong knowing she lead such an amazing long life and she is now in a better place, with other loved ones and hopefully she got to meet my Dad, and can sing him a tune as I know she loved to sing, a little birdie told me.
❤️ You all Lisa & ( Jordan, Malia, & Caty)
