Malinda Jane Allison-Phillips was born on June 9th, 1981, in Tulsa, OK, the daughter of Herbert Eugene and Ada Marie (Cruse) Allison. She was raised in a household with three sisters, Tonya, Bridgett, and Malissa and her four brothers, Gilford, Timothy, Herb, and Eddie. She attended high school in Catoosa and graduated in 1999, then completed her Bachelors Degree in Applied Science. She took a position as Intake Specialist at GLMHC. She married her best friend, soulmate and constant companion, Scott Phillips on August 11th, 2001 in Claremore, OK. This union was blessed with 16 years of happiness and memories and two adored daughters, Maggie Lee and Allison Lynn. Malinda was a wonderful daughter, wife, mother and friend. She always gave of her best to any undertaking. Her patients were always treated like family and she went out of her way to make sure they received the treatment they needed. There was nothing she treasured more in this life than her family, from being her Daddys little girl to her husbands best friend and her daughters constant companion in every activity they ever tried. Malinda was always there to offer support, advice, love and that famous smile that lit up an entire room. She was blessed with the funniest sense of humor, and could always make those around her happy. There were no strangers in her life, just loads of friends and soon to be new friends. Her daughters knew they had a friend in Mom, their friends were always welcome to the house to enjoy some of her good home cooking and the pep talk to keep playing the game with all they had to give. When she was at home, she loved to spend time loving on her furbabies. Every day to Malinda was a gift from God and she packed as much life and love into each moment that she had to give. Even though she had so much to give and so many things left to do, Malinda was taken all too soon from those who loved her so dearly and needed her so badly in their lives on January 26th, 2018 in Tahlequah ,OK. Our hearts are broken but we feel so very blessed to have the absolute best daughter, sister, wife, mother and friend ever in our lives for as long as we had her. She has left a terrible void that can never be filled, but her memory in one we will hold dear all the days of our lives.
She is preceded in death by her grandparents, and one sister, Alissa Mears.
Those left to cherish her memory include her husband Scott of the home, and her wonderful daughters, Maggie Lee and Allison Lynn Phillips also of the home. She leaves her mother and father of Vian, OK. Her brothers and sisters include Gilford Ray Brown and wife Misty Renee of Vian, OK, Timothy DesChamp of Broken Arrow, OK, Herb Allison Jr. and wife Kimberly of Keefton, OK, and Eddie Allison and wife Laurie of Massachusetts, Tonya Austin of broken Arrow, and Bridgett Denton of Sapulpa, OK. She also leaves many nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of friend and loved ones too numerous to mention. We love you and miss you and hope you know how much your love has meant to all of us.
