In loving memory of Elizabeth Ann Warren Phillips

Fund Type: Memorial Donations

Murfreesboro, NC

Fundraiser ends on April 23, 2020

Show your love and support for the Phillips family by making a donation to the Murfreesboro Historic Association

Elizabeth's greatest joy was her family. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. After her three children became adults Elizabeth turned her interest to enhancing and preserving Murfreesboro and the place it holds in the history of the Roanoke Chowan area. For decades Elizabeth’s interest in gardening fueled her work at the Wheeler house garden. Many trips to historic Williamsburg for classes kept the garden true to its historic time period.  Later when the garden became too much for Elizabeth and Dewey, she became the site manager for the Wheeler House. Again, she traveled to Williamsburg, but also to East Carolina University, Richmond, VA, Raleigh, and the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts (MESDA) in Winston-Salem to ensure that the historic buildings in Murfreesboro reflected their proper place in time. Elizabeth was knowledgeable not only about historic buildings in Murfreesboro but their place in the history of our state and region. Not a week went by that she did not share that knowledge to make the historic areas more accurate and inviting to tourists.  Elizabeth lived a life rich in friends and family, always ready with a pot of homemade soup or flowers for anyone needing their spirits lifted. Thanks for your donation!
