Grace Lee Knight Phillips


Grace Lee Knight Phillips, age 70 of Wilmington NC passed away Monday January 17, 2022 at Azalea Health and Rehab Center in Wilmington, NC.

Grace was born on March 23, 1951 to the late Raymond E. Knight and Sarah I. Rose in Richmond, Virginia. Her late husband was Harold Phillips.

She is survived by many friends whom were family to her and a cousin Ken Knight. Grace previously resided in Calabash, NC but had made Wilmington her present home.

Grace enjoyed her volunteer work at New Hanover County Arboretum and New Hanover County Senior Center. She especially enjoyed spending time with her friends at Fancy Flea Antique Mall in Shallotte NC where she sold antiques. Her love of travel, gardening, collecting antiques, sewing and crafting enriched her love of being friends with many.

A special thank you is extended to Azalea Health and Rehab Center for their dedicated care of Grace.

A memorial gathering is pending.

    Ric and I will truly miss our Sunday conversations at the Flea! We always enjoyed the Sundays when you came by to work your spaces. You always made us smile! Until we meet again dear friend!

    I'll never forget chatting all those times in the driveways and finding Easter eggs that you've planted in my garden, and all the little things that you did to bring a smile to our faces in the neighborhood. You had such spunk and energy, a smile always on your face. You are in a better place now and laughing once again. We will all miss you until we meet again!
