Greer resident Tina Marie Phillips, 56, died May 16, 2019. She was born March 23, 1963 in Oakland, California, to Richard and Isabel [Falcato] Hall.
Tina met Kenneth W. Phillips in 1984 in California, and the two were later married Feb. 15, 1990 in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, during their Valentine’s Day vacation. While in California, she worked as the office manager at the ambulance service owned and operated by her family. Shortly after their marriage, Tina and Ken relocated to Chandler, where she worked as a billing specialist for Ahwatukee Family Physicians for five years. She then went on to work as a 9-1-1 operator for eight years until landing a job with the Chandler Police as administrative specialist for another seven years.
Tina was a very giving person and would help anyone she could. She was very active in and was always the leader of the benevolent and charitable organizations such as “Team 905,” a dedicated support group for Chandler Police employees, named after the police code for “back-up”. Tina and Ken later retired to Greer, while there, Tina still donated her time by volunteering as president of the Greer Library Club, in charge of gaining donations and supplies for the library.
Tina is survived by her loving husband of 29 1/2 years, Ken Phillips; her son and daughter-in-law, Ryan and Michelle of Chandler; grandson Jaxon, 7; mother Isabel Hall of Arizona; brothers Anthony Hall of Arizona and Gary Hall of Alabama as well as her sister, Carol Beare of California.
