Lily Renee Phillips passed away at 101

Here's some news by Trina Robbins on Facebook I'd only noticed being spoken about recently by the press, about a female Golden Age comics artist whom I'd spoken about in the past year or so, Lily Renee Phillips, who's now deceased at 101, having lived over a century old. Her son sent the sad news:
It’s with great sadness that my sister and I regret to inform you of the passing of our mother. She died peacefully at home, as was her wish, yesterday after living a full life of more than 101 years. There is a time for all of us and her death comes on the heels of the birth of her third great grandchild earlier this year. Thank you all for being part of her life in her twilight years. We plan on holding a Celebration of Life in September.
I'd written about Phillips before, and she's one of a number of women from 20th century history of cartooning and writing who'll never gain the respect she deserves from today's PC crowd, sadly enough. At least we, who honor history, can do what the PC crowd who pretend such ladies were never around, can acknowledge Phillips as a notable contributor from a time when quality was far better.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
