Elizabeth M. (Huber) Phillips
1932 - 2019

Elizabeth Mae Phillips passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Friday, September 13, 2019.

Betty was born November 8, 1932 in Pittsburgh, PA to Leo and Bertha (Letzelter) Huber. She moved to Waterbury and graduated from Waterbury Catholic High School in 1950. She met the love of her life, Gene, first on a bus, and then at a high school dance.

Betty and Gene were married on December 4, 1954 and were blessed with the kind of love only a few can find in a lifetime. After nine months of being apart from the love of her life, Gene, her broken heart could no longer bare the loss. Her family finds comfort in knowing they are now reunited together forever. She was a devoted wife, mom, grandma, mimi, and great grandmother (GG). Her greatest love in life was her family and celebrating happy times together, especially Christmas. Betty enjoyed vacationing at the RI beaches, family reunions in Lancaster, PA, traveling the world with Gene, history, playing mahjong, shopping, knitting, and a great lobster dinner. She will be missed more than words can express.

Elizabeth is survived by a son Paul J. Phillips and his wife Lisa of Middlebury, and daughters Beth Ann Phillips and her partner Tom Calvocoressi of Berlin, Lugene Kulpa and her husband Dominick of Tolland, and Donna Boucher and her husband Drew of Tolland. She is also survived by 11 grandchildren who loved her dearly and whom she was so proud of: Sara (Joe) Martocci, Stephen (Nicole) Kulpa, Marissa (Ray) Culver, Jamison Boucher, Olivia Boucher, Erica Schwab, Amanda Schwab, Marissa (Chris) Frois, Paris Phillips, Rupa (Charles) Grummon, Anand (Christy) Agrawal. Her nine great grandchildren held a special place in her heart: Jackson and Mason Martocci, Chase Kulpa, Chloe Culver, Sophie and Xander Grummon, Anika, Aidan and Abigail Agrawal, and future great grandson (Frois) due in November, 2019. She was predeceased by a son, Dennis Michael (1955).

The family would like to express their gratitude to the Manchester Memorial Hospital ICU staff, Dr. Gandhi, and Dr. Camrye. A special thank you to Jamie and Mary from Companions and Homemakers for their kindness and compassion. You all hold a special place in our hearts and we will never forget.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Wednesday, September 18, 2019 at 11:00am at St. John of the Cross Church, 1263 West Street, Middlebury, CT. Burial will follow in Lake Elise Cemetery, Middlebury, CT. There are no calling hours and arrangements are entrusted to Buckmiller Thurston Mengacci Funeral Home, 82 Fairview Avenue, Naugatuck, CT.
