LOCAL FUNERALS AND VISITATIONS
Nov. 8 — Carol Phillips, memorial service, 2 p.m., Wallowa Christian Church
She was born Feb. 24, 1946, in Pendleton to Majorlee Doris Sawyer and Jamus Richard Grove.
Carol lived in numerous towns in Eastern Oregon and Southeast Washington for most of her childhood. Carol’s family left Oregon to pursue opportunities in Southern California, San Diego in 1952. After returning to Wallowa in 1999, Carol pursued her passions — knitting and beading — while working in various restaurants and stores in customer service-related positions, and ultimately providing care to Wallowa’s elderly. She had said she enjoyed the work.
Carol attended Wallowa Christian Church and had said she was grateful for the friendships she developed while learning God’s word and through fellowship with others. She was known for helping others and for her sharp wit.
Carol is survived by her four children, Tommy Lee Beals, Anna Jannette Beals-Radar, Dwayne Glen Beals and Trent Alan Beals; as well as her sister, Judy Sawyer; seven grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

Those who knew Mary say she was a woman of deep personal faith, prayer and devotion. Bible-reading was one of her favorite habits. Family members say her happiest moments were at family gatherings where her children and grandchildren were all together.
