MOLINE — Nancy A. Phillips, 75, of Moline, formerly of Buda, died Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012, at Trinity Hospital in Rock Island, with her loving husband and family by her side.

She was born Aug. 25, 1937. She married Robert J. Phillips of Peoria on March 18, 1967. She was a graduate of Sterling Beauty School and was a licensed beautician for over 50 years. In those years, she touched so many lives with her talents and friendship. Nancy was always there when someone needed her and she will be missed by many.

Survivors include her husband, Robert; daughter, Julie (Jerry) Tonet of Moline, and son, Brian Phillips of Davenport, Iowa; her brother, Neil (Sandra) Bitting of Corpus Christi, Texas, and sister-in-law, Mary Lu (Boyd) Bitting of Buda; and five grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Clarence and Margaret Bitting; and a brother, Boyd Bitting.

A memorial and celebration of her life will be from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Community Hall in Buda.
