Andrea Lea Phillips, April 22, 1969~January 27, 2017
Andrea Lea Phillips, age 47, passed away peacefully Friday, January 27, 2017, at Willard Walker Hospice Home in Fayetteville, Arkansas. She was born April 22, 1969 at Washington Regional in Fayetteville, Arkansas to Jarrett Ray Eaton and Barbara Ann Johnson.
Andrea was preceded in death by her beloved father, Jarrett Ray Eaton along with grandparents, Frank & Irene Eaton on her father’s side and Johnny & Angie Hawkins on her mother’s.
Andrea loved people and even more so taking care of them, which was reflected in her life-long career of serving at restaurants. Andrea was also quite the cook, whether it was for her immediate family or for a cookout (which were a current event). No one ever went hungry around Andrea. It brought joy to her heart being able to make food so plentiful that everyone could eat, and so good that everyone would end up eating too much. Holidays were Andrea’s favorite times of the year as one of her hobbies was decorating, which she did extremely well blessing numerous people besides herself. The holidays also presented her the opportunity for giving which she did so eagerly every chance she got.
Many in the community of Northwest Arkansas have been touched by the kindness of Andrea as she had an uncanny ability to touch those around her in a deep and positive way.
She is survived by her children, Brandy Coleman and Jarod (Scotty) Eaton; brother, Mark Eaton; mother, Barbara Johnston; as well as many loving aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces and cousins.
Funeral services will be 10:00 A.M. Tuesday, January 31, 2017 at Beard’s Funeral Chapel with Pat Manning officiating. Interment will follow in Boston Cemetery in Pettigrew under the direction of Beard’s Chapel.
There is no scheduled visitation.
