Beverly A. Phillips

April 30, 1956 — September 22, 2022

Beverly A. Phillips, 66, passed away on September 22, 2022, at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia. She was born on April 30, 1956, in Bethlehem, to the late David Koch, Sr. and Rosemarie T. (Kirka) Koch. Beverly was the devoted wife of Joseph Phillips of Allentown.

Beverly will be lovingly remembered as a unique, kind, and special woman. She genuinely cared about the people in her life. Beverly was most proud of her children; they were her life. She took great pride in keeping them out of trouble. Beverly adored her family.

In her free time, Beverly enjoyed creating crafts, especially holiday wreaths. She also found great peace in listening to the music of the 80s, Motown, Oldies, and Country.

She worked as an assembler for the Allen Organ Company prior to taking medical leave. Since that time, she graciously and courageously battled cancer for over 20 years. Beverly never complained or felt sorry about her ailments. In her desire to care for others, she never wanted to be a burden to her family. Beverly lived her life was dignity.

She will be dearly missed by her husband, Joseph; sons, Jason Phillips, and spouse, Maryann Cancel, and Michael Phillips; brothers, Brian, and David Koch; sister, Debbie Blank; six grandchildren; three great grandchildren; her shih tzu, Teddy; as well as her extended family and friends.
