Donald D. Phillips, of Yelm, passed away peacefully at his home on April 17, 2019. He met his lovely wife, Lavina, in Manson, Washington, and they were married Sept. 21, 1963. They lived most of their married life in Yelm while raising their three children, Kelli, David and Bryan. Don had two careers that he loved — as a logger for Weyerhaeuser and as a custodian at Southworth Elementary. In his retirement, he enjoyed having his family visit, home projects, watching the news, baking and spending time with his wife. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
A small open house memorial will be held at his home from 1 to 5 p.m. on May 25, 2019. If you would like to attend, please contact the Phillips family at 360-894-7852 for directions.
