Title Lucy A Phillips-Teacher-Friend
Description Much had been said and written of her generosity in helping students to get an education, giving freely of her resources so that anyone who had the desire might study and learn She reached out to many during the depression years, especially, so education might be available. During my second year at Snow, I had the rare privilege of living with Miss Phillips and two other girls while doing my student teaching. It was during this time I learned to appreciate her wisdom, her sense of humor, her fun-loving disposition, and her deep religious convictions. It was a time I teamed food tastes better on a warm plate on a cold night. I learned that we shared common likes--"If there aren't tomatoes and popcorn in heaven, it won't be heaven," she said. An Easter vacation at her home in Springville, a night she spent at our home in Mount Pleasant, and weiner roasts with students across the street gave such an insight to her ability to mingle with the students, share their fun while also sharing her wisdom, and teaching-whether in the school room or mingling socially with others. As school days ended and I married and began raising my family, soon I had children going to Snow College and coming under the influence of Miss Phillips. She showed the same concern for them, helping, encouraging, disciplining, praising, teaching. At last came a time when the chapters of her book at Snow College were closed-a time to leave her books, her familiar office, the halls, the classes-a difficult time with eyes growing dim, looking to a future of dependency on others. Miss Phillips had often said that she wanted to live to be old just to know what it was like. Her wish was granted: 89 fruitful years. Perhaps those last years were not the best of life, but she continued to do what she could, to think of others, and to write letters of comfort, encouragement, and praise for accomplish-ment. 150
