Irene was born on April 19, 1934, in Jersey, Georgia, to Mamie Peters Allgood and to Roy Allgood.

Irene was a loving wife to her husband of 65 years, Joseph Donald Phillips. She was a homemaker, mother, master seamstress and decorator of her home, and she groomed animals until her retirement.

She is survived by her husband, Joseph Donald Phillips; daughter and son-in-law, Jan and David Tyner, of Hull; grandchildren, Wade and Jaclyn Tyner, Andrew Tyner and Mimi Tyner; great-grandchildren, Aubrey, Oliver, Laylah, Caroline, Violet, James, Elizabeth “Ellie,” Samantha and Holly; brother and sister-in-law, Johnny and Lana Allgood; beloved niece, Faye Allgood Barnes; numerous nieces and nephews; brother-in-law Robert and Barbara Phillips; and sister-in-law Nette Phillips Yancey.

Burial was at the New Hope United Methodist Church cemetery in Between.

The family wishes to express a special thank you to her loving caregivers of Great Oaks Senior Living and Abbey Hospice, Sherry and Veronica. Your support was wonderful during our journey with Mom’s Parkinson’s and dementia. She is now into her eternal life with a new body and mind.
