Obituary of Pearl Maxine Duvall Phillips
Pearl Maxine Duvall Phillips passed away on June 25, 2022, at an assisted living facility in Boise, Idaho.
Pearl was born in Kingston, Arkansas on July 16, 1925. She was the third of six daughters born to Emmett (Judge) Duvall and Sinda Burk Duvall. When she was fifteen, she moved with her family to a farm near Kuna, Idaho. Pearl went to Mora High School and graduated from Kuna High School. She married Carol (Swede) Phillips in June of 1946. They lived in the Meridian area where they farmed until 1955, when they moved to Longview, Washington. Swede worked for Reynolds Aluminum and always worked rotating shifts. Pearl was a housewife, so on most of their long weekends and holidays they went to their beach property. They also traveled many miles in their RV seeing a lot of the USA and Canada. They raised miniature ponies and enjoyed many adventures associated with them. They moved back to the Boise area in 1990 to be closer to family. Pearl loved going to the Kuna Senior Center where she had many friends, and never met a stranger.
Pearl was preceded in death by her husband Swede, her parents, and 3 sisters: Frankie Barker, Dorothy Grigg and Hazel Duvall. She is survived by two sisters: Minnie Hutchinson of Meridian, and Alice (Monty) Leinberger of Boise. Along with many nieces and nephews and many friends.
