Death: 9/25/2015, Moab, Utah
Service: 09/29/2015, 11:00 am, Moab Baptist Church on Kane Creek

Margie Faye LaBranch Phillips passed away after a battle with cancer on Friday, September 25, 2015 with several of her family by her side.

Born Nov. 30, 1936 in Clamath Falls, OR, Marge was the only child of Lowell “Butch” and Dorothy LaBranch. She grew up in Silt and New Castle, Colorado and moved to Moab in 1952 at the age of 16. In 1956, Margie met and married Billy Wayne Phillips and they had three children, Dana, Kirk and Kari.

Margie retired from Texasgulf in 1999 and in 2000 began working for the Texasgulf Credit Union, which later merged with the Grand County Credit Union, where she continued working until her untimely death. Marge loved her co-workers and looked forward to going to work and seeing the people.

Margie will be remembered for her love of her special tv shows (heaven forbid she received a call during one of her shows!), crafting, sports, her lifelong love of reading, bingo, vegas shows, traveling, her sense of humour, her unending courage and strength and her incredible and unwavering love and support of her family.

Margie is survived by her children, Dana Palza of Logan, UT, Kirk (Cindy) of Ignacio, CO and Kari (Mike) Huts of Moab, UT. Her eight grandchildren, Erik Murphy, Matt Murphy, Heather (Dean) Murphy Dalton, all of Moab, UT, Misha (Roger) Palza Ochsenbein, Logan, UT, Christopher (Shonda) Phillips, Kimberli (Nick) Phillips Naranajo, all of Ignacio, CO, Cassie Palza, Logan, UT and Kevin Murphy, Salt Lake City, UT. Her nine great grandchildren, Shaley Larsen, Katelyn Murphy, Josalyn Murphy, Gracelyn Faye Naranajo, Kira Hansen, Kendal Dalton, Colt Phillips, and Lillian Dalton.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Bill, both of her parents and her son-in-law Dennis Palza.

Margie will be sorely missed by all who knew her, and loved by so many.

A memorial service will be held at the Moab Baptist Church September 29, 2015, at 11:00 am.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
