WATERLOO — Laura Jane Kennedy Phillips, 71, passed away June 27, 2017. Jane had an exceptional zest for life with seemingly boundless energy for her church, craft projects, lawn care, hospitality, and especially her family. She laughed easily and loved deeply. She was generous and kind, and to know her was to love her. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
Visitation will be today from 10 a.m. to noon at Cross Point Church of Christ. The funeral service will begin at noon at the church with Wayne Gean officiating. Burial will follow in Greenview Memorial Park.
