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.

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.
