It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Laurie Anne Philips at
her home in Midland on May 9. Born in Sioux Lookout, Ontario, Laurie is survived
by her parents John and Carol Philips of Midland, brother Andrew (Lise Turcotte)
of Midland, nieces Josee, Carmelle and Mathilde Philips, many other relatives at
home and abroad and her loving Auntie Do Philips of Toronto. She was predeceased
by her brother Christian and her loving grandparents Rich and Dorothy Philips of
Brockville and Jack and Margaret Dowell of Brockville.
Following high school
in Midland and Elmvale, Laurie went to Georgian College where she learned her
craft of stained glass and jewelry making. A strong believer in the Family of
Man, Laurie made friends easily and had lifetime friends both locally and far
away. She also had a great love of music and movies and would entertain friends
and family with remembered musical moments and comedy sketches. We cherished her
wonderful sense of humour, her inner gentleness, kindness and sweetness and love
of animals. Three of her closest companions were her cats Peanut, Rex and

Arrangements have been entrusted to LeClair Cremation Centre. A
memorial service will be held at a later date. Donations in Laurie’s memory may
be made to the Midland & District branch of the Ontario SPCA
