I got to know Anne as a secondary school pupil in 1958. She was the wife of our school principal – James Welch Grammar School Emevor in Southern Nigerian. She taught us Biology and Algebra. I was one of her Sunday School teachers. She prepared us and provided bicycles for us to go and teach in the village churches Sunday school. She played the piano during our worship in the school. This was a great excitement to us students. The Christian influence from her and husband contributed to my taking to the church ministry.
Her medical care was a great blessing to our school population and the community around the school. Her clinic days in the community was teeming with patients. Her name is still very much revered in the homes in the community. I was very intimate to her as I was the medical prefect under her for over three years.
We are consoled that she chose to be laid to rest beside her husband’s grave. A spot I visited with my wife in 1998. Mrs. Dr. Anne Philips was a mother to all her students. May her soul rest in peace with the Lord Jesus Christ – Amen!
