One of the beauties from Ginter Park during my youth has passed this year leaving a loving family much to soon. Obituary in comments.
PHILLIPS, Terry Una Lee, 55, a psychiatric nurse, formerly of Richmond, died January 27, 2011 of cancer at her home on Vancouver Island, Canada, with her former husband, Ronald Phillips, at her bedside. She leaves her beloved children, Alina and Sastun; beloved stepdaughter, Cybele (Alan); her mother, Rose Morningstar of Sylva, N.C.; father, Ron Lee of Asheville, N.C.; stepfather, Forrest Clapp (Betty); brother, Mitchell Lee (Raidah) of Richmond; sisters, Tina Lee (Dan Page) of Camden, Maine and Marie Lee of Sylva, N.C.; her much-loved nieces, nephews, and other extended family. Terry earned her B.S. and M.S. degrees at VCU, and had lived in Niger, Poland, Zambia, Namibia, and South Africa while her husband was a consultant in economic development. Family and friends will remember Terry’s passion for parenting, gardening, dancing, and land conservation. Canadian friends acclaimed her leadership in saving for perpetuity the Chase Woods property on Mt. Tzuhalem, B.C. She is appreciated, too, for her uncanny ability in creating various social networks that brought people together for common joys and concerns. A talented artist, singer, activist, feminist, friend to many around the world, and a sort of “Renaissance Woman,” Terry will be sorely missed. A Celebration of Life Memorial will be held Saturday, March 5, 2 p.m., at the Richmond Friends Meeting House, 4500 Kensington Avenue. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Tricycle Gardens, 2107 Jefferson Avenue, Richmond, Va. 23223, or http://www.tricyclegardens.org.
