Rochele Lee (Shelly Piper) Phillips, 64, passed away early Saturday morning, June 5th, 2021, in her home, after a relentless battle with Multiple Myeloma.

     Shelly was born on January 9th, 1957, in Gary, Indiana. She was preceded in death by her father, John Piper and her mother and stepfather, Penny and Gene Millspaugh. She was a graduate of Montezuma High School in Indiana in 1975.

Shelly is survived by her loving husband of nineteen years, Wayne Phillips, 71, of Clinton, Indiana, and her devoted daughter, Amy Michelle Hale, 43, of Brazil, Indiana.

     Shelly is also survived by her sisters, Ronda (Rob) Zimmerman, Cohnnie (David) Craig, Mary (Joe) Millspaugh, sister-in-law Cindi (Dave) Weddle, and a brother, Steve (Kim) Millspaugh, as well as her stepchildren, Tina (Chris) Willis, Robert Phillips and Dan Phillips, two fur-babies, Jake and Joey, and numerous nieces, nephews, and grandchildren.

     Shelly had a smile that would light up even the darkest room. Her laughter was infectious, whether she was singing with Wayne’s World Karaoke, or playing pool with The Pocket Raddlers. For many years she dressed up as a clown or the Easter Bunny, spreading her joy to so many others, by following in her mother, Penny’s, footsteps. All through her fight with Multiple Myeloma her smile never dimmed. She left us far too soon, but the imprint she left on our hearts will never fade.
At Shelly’s request, she will be cremated. There will be no viewing or graveside services; but a Celebration of Life gathering is being planned for family and close friends.
