Mildred Phillips Justice, 92, of Hardy, KY passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 1, 2022 at the Tug Valley ARH Regional Medical Center in South Williamson, KY. Born June 19, 1929 at Grapevine, KY, she was the daughter of the late William Kerry Phillips and the late Gracie Williamson Phillips.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband of 58 years, Ray Justice, two sons, Stephen Justice and Rodney Justice. Rodney and his beautiful wife Tina both passed away from Covid19 one month apart in 2021. She was also preceded by several brothers and sisters.
Mildred had a lifetime of hard work. At the age of 15 she had to raise her small siblings after her mother suddenly passed away. Even having this responsibility thrust upon her as a young teenager, she still attended and graduated from high school. She was dedicated homemaker and an avid organic gardener. Mildred obeyed the Gospel as a teenager and remained a faithful member of the Church of Christ. She was a current member of the Caney Church of Christ. With a vast knowledge of the scriptures, she always tried to spread the Gospel to anyone she spoke with.
Survivors include her six children, Jane (Victor) Madero, Cheryl (Tilden) Staton, Sheila (Ted) Simpkins, David Justice, Ronald Justice, and Philip (Kelly) Justice, one brother, Edgar Gene Phillips, ten grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.
In honoring Mildred’s wishes, only a graveside service will be held Saturday, March 5, 2022 at 2:00 pm at the Family Cemetery at Hardy, KY with Minister Dennis Ooten speaking and burial to follow.
