Theresa M. Phipps

ANDOVER — Theresa Marie Ferrari Phipps, age 75, of Andover, Ohio, died Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012, in her home after a 42 year battle with lymphoma.

She was born Oct. 31, 1937, in Footdale, Pa., the seventh child of the late Pete and Blanche Hixon Ferrari. On June 19, 1982, in Jefferson, Ohio, she married her true love, Thomas L. Phipps who died Oct. 25, 2010.

A homemaker, Mrs. Phipps was previously employed by A & P Tea Co. in Chardon, Ohio and the K Mart in Conneaut, Ohio. She  was a member of the Rhema Christian Center in Lewisburg, W.Va. and was instrumental in establishing a mission in Haiti through the Center.

Deceased in addition to her parents and husband is a grandson, Jeffrey Thomas Wojtowicz; three sisters, Elizabeth Ferrari, Sarah Waters and Josephine Hetrick; and one brother, James A. Ferrari.

Friends will be received from 2 to 8 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 2nd, in the JOHN B.
