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.

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.
