Patricia A. Phillips of Laguna Niguel passed away peacefully on 11/15/21 comforted by her children, Lori Robillard and James “Jim” Phillips. Patricia is survived by her two sisters Margaret “Marge” Foley and Dolores Foley and her beloved four grandchildren: Spencer and Parker Robillard, and Roman and Lola Phillips. She is also survived by Lori’s wife Kate Singer and Jim’s wife Jacqueline
Patricia first moved to Laguna Beach in 1964 where she found her artistic side and exhibited in the Sawdust Festival in its early years and volunteered in Laguna’s Free Clinic. Art was a thread throughout her life and she studied with Roger Armstrong (1918-2007) and was a member of the Quorum Gallery in North Laguna. She was also a medical office nurse that was proficient at front and back office management.
Patricia loved to travel and enjoyed good food. She considered herself very fortunate to have seen much of the world over her lifetime. Her favorites were Italy and Ireland. She was an avid reader of books, an expert crossword puzzler, loved going to the movies, and had a natural green thumb. She was loved by many friends at the Dana West Yacht club and the cardiac rehabilitation gym at Mission Hospital.
She will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
