Amy D Phillips, 50, passed suddenly in her home on January 6th. Amy is survived by her husband, Rick, and her two daughter Audrey Grace, 15, and Cassandra Ellen, 12. Amy is also survived by her parents, Richard and Linda (Murphy)Dawson, sister, Hilary, and niece Carolyn. She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Jasper and Wilma Murphy and W.E. Jeff Dawson and Lois (White) Dawson Dawson , along with her furry companions Stravinsky, Mussorgsky and Rachmaninoff.
Amy was an employee for Procter and Gamble since 1992 working on a variety of products as a Products Researcher. Brands included Folgers, Crisco, Pringles, Torangos, Iams and Gillette. The past four years she has been working at Modeling and Simulation at the Mason Business Center. Amy’s time with Procter allowed her to travel to many countries, including Malaysia, Italy, and France.
Amy was a member of Knox Presbyterian Church in which she was a Deacon and served as a Sunday School teacher. Her passion was teaching the Kindergarten and First grade ages. She enjoyed finding projects for her students to construct. She also enjoyed doing mission work, such as Mission Possible, Christmas items for Third Church, and School Supplies for Third Church, to name a few.
Amy excelled at everything. From being Valedictorian of her high school class to being the best wife and mother to her two girls, she was seamless in coordinating meetings, events, day-to-day schedules and both work and home. She could take on enormous amounts of projects and would not let anyone know how exhausted she was. Whether it was the Christmas Roll gift she gave to all her friends and neighbors to arranging orthondist and doctor appointments, to band and volleyball performance, practice and games, she orchestrated everything meticulously. She enjoyed woodworking, sewing, and needlepoint. Her favorite hobby she loved was creating a needlepoint ornament to give to her closest friends.
Her biggest loves were her two girls, Audrey and Cassie, and all her Balinese cats. Her heart was full whenever she was doing something for the girls or showing love to her beloved cats. She was active in all school events, whether Childrens’ Meeting House or Indian Hill, as well as Girls Scouts, Indian Hill Band or whatever projects the girls were involved.
Amy loved playing hand bell in the Knox Handbell Choir and was an active member of Queen City Bronze. She was also a co-leader for Girl Scout Troop #49878.
