Obituary for Barbara D. Philipsen

Barbara Diane Philipsen (McGee) died peacefully on Sunday, March 8, 2020 in Nashua, NH.

She was born December 25, 1944 in Rutland, Vermont, to Bertha McGee (Leavitt) and Homer McGee. Growing up in Chittenden, VT she loved to play outside and slide in the snow. After graduating Otter Valley Senior High School, she married the love of her life, William Philipsen on May 6, 1967. They lived in Milford, NH for many years where they raised their two sons, Christopher and Kevin. On May 12, 1984, she was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and lived up to that dedication until her final moments. Her faith in the Bible helped her to endure the death of William on October 10, 1995.

Barbara enjoyed various crafts and was an expert at them. Family and friends have benefitted from her kindness and handmade blankets, sweaters and hats.

Barbara is survived by her two sons, Christopher (Jenn, Nick Drake) and Kevin (Joanna); her sister, Muriel Soulia (Harley); and her brother, Bernard McGee (Jeanette); as well as nieces and nephews and many dear friends who were by her side thru her illness. In addition, we wish to express our appreciation to her oncologist, Dr. Ivy Wilkinson-Ryan, Home Health & Hospice Care as well as Aynsley Place and all the staff who provided such excellent care during the final stages of her illness.

A Memorial Service will be held on Sunday, March 15, 2020 at 3 PM, 282 Broad Street, Hollis, NH 03049.
