Sharon Caldwell Phillips

Sharon Caldwell Phillips, beloved mother, grandmother, sister, and friend passed away to the hands of the Lord from complications of Alzheimer’s. She left this wonderful world on July 14, 2019 in the city of Syracuse, Utah. She was born in Los Angeles, California on October 30, 1946, the daughter of David and Mary Caldwell.

Sharon was educated and raised in the Los Angeles area and finished High School at Bonneville High in Ogden, Utah. She married Thomas Phillips on February 14, 1964 and were later divorced. Together they had two wonderful sons that were very special in her life and always in her heart.

She was employed at Hill Air Force Base and retired after 37 years. She had many great and exciting experiences traveling to many foreign countries in her job and enjoyed the time spent meeting the people, becoming their friend and seeing how they lived in their countries.

She was a member of the Presbyterian Church and when she was younger, sang her heart out in the choirs in Los Angeles, California.

Sharon’s greatest joys and accomplishments were here sons. She taught them and in turn they taught her a lot of things in life. Her favorite things to do were spending time with her wonderful sons, daughters-in-law, and grandchildren. Her passions were golfing with her friends, crafting, decorating, traveling - especially to Hawaii, and cruising with her special friends. Sharon knows those whom are left behind will remember her kindness and thoughtfulness, and her wish is for them to pass it on to others.

Survivors include her two sons, Kent (Patti) Phillips of Laguna Nigel, California and Kim (Debbie) Phillips of Syracuse, Utah; seven grandchildren, Brianna (Andrew), Stephanie, Jacob, Savannah, Summer, Tyler John, and Joey; and one great-grandchild, Justin. She is also survived by one brother, Alan (Debbie) Caldwell of South Jordan, Utah.

She is preceded in death by her grandparents; father, David; mother, Mary; and sister, Adele Fulmer.

The family wishes to express our deepest gratitude to Visiting Angels, Fairfield Village Staff and Encompass Hospice Staff.

Friends may visit with the family from 10:00 – 10:45 am at Leavitt’s Mortuary, 836 36th Street, Ogden, UT. Graveside Services will be held at 11:00 am on Thursday, July 18, 2019, at the Washington Heights Memorial Park, 4500 Washington Blvd, Ogden, UT.

Kent and Kim- I got to know your Mom at our GI office. She was always so sweet and we visited about you two and how much she adored her grand kids. She always had such a sweetheart to me and I enjoyed our talks. You had a great Mom. Sorry for your loss!

I loved spending time with Sharon. I am so sorry for your loss. What an amazing woman.

I met your mom 6 1/2 years ago when I moved into Trailside HOA. She lived 2 houses from me and immediately came to meet me and took me under her wing, helping me to understand Trailside and the surrounding Syracuse/Layton area. She, Bernie, Kris, and I spent many good times together, going to lunch, boutiques, and shopping. Ive missed her a lot and will continue to miss her. She was a great friend. Rest In Peace, Dear Sharon....your suffering is now over. Know that we love you. Lynn Miller

I'm thankful I was able to visit and take her to lunch every time I was up there to see my family. I'm especially grateful that I visited her about a month ago. My sincerest sorrow for your loss. She was my dearest friend when we met in 1966 when we both were hired at HAFB. We remained BFF long after retirement. May she Rest In Peace.
