Judy Ann (Inman) Phillips, of Peppertown, passed away January 19, 2021 battling a variety of non-COVID health issues over the last several years. She was 74 years old. Born May 31, 1946 in Cincinnati, Ohio, she is the daughter of Sylvia (Nee: Gibson) and Robert (Bob) Inman Jr. and was a member of the Moores Hills Baptist Church.
Judy loved to cook, work in her flower gardens and sit on her front porch swing but most of all, she loved being with all of her family. She was known as Nan to any and all children. Never did you go to Nan’s house without getting cookies out of her endless supply of cookie jars.
She married Chester Phillips March 14, 1965 in Sunman. They were married 55 years. Nan will be dearly missed by Chester and son Matthew (Gretchen) and their children Tess, Wilson, Ryanna, Paige, Leigh, Samson and Evelyn of Batesville. She loved all of her nieces and nephews, but there were three she took under her wing as her own: Mike (Jennifer) Reed and their five children of Peppertown, Tabitha (JT) Thompson and their four children of Peppertown, Theresa (Greg) Baker and their two children of Metamora; sisters Sylvia (Bob) McDaniel of Peppertown, Maggie (Larry) Kunze of Sunman, Linda (Roy) Coyle of Batesville and brothers Bobby (Deb) Inman of Morris, Fred Inman of Harrison, Ohio, Mark Inman of New Castle, Indiana as well as numerous nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, she is also preceded in death by her niece Kimmy Jo Neeley.
