Phipps, Margaret Elizabeth* - Lucasville  
During the afternoon of April 29, Margaret ""Moo"" (Compliment) Phipps passed away peacefully surrounded by family and friends. She was 88 years old. Margaret was born on June 14, 1926 in the town of Portsmouth, Ohio. She was the first child of Mary Elizabeth and Fredrick Earl Compliment. Margaret had many fond memories of her childhood. She spent her summer days at Roosevelt Lake, playing and having picnic lunches with her sister, Dorothy. In 3rd grade, Margaret met her lifelong best friend, Joan Bates. At a young age, Margaret started attending church with her grandmother. Her faith was an important part of her life, and she taught her grandchildren the importance of always keeping a dollar bill and a stick of gum in their bible. Margaret was a proud member of Pleasant Hill Church, and later in life, Hope Lutheran Church. Margaret was fortunate enough to have met two loves during her lifetime. Margaret married Nate in 1953. They settled down in McDermott, Ohio and raised four children, Sue, Margie, Bruce, and Max. Nate and Margaret enjoyed traveling the United States in their RV. Some of their favorite vacations included Hawaii and cruising the Caribbean. In 1990, Nate passed away. Margaret spent her time gardening, playing with her grandchildren, finding bargains at the thrift store, and collecting hundreds of bells. In 2004 she moved to Sheffield Lake, and this is when she met her second love, Roy Clark. Margaret and Roy spent their evenings watching Wheel of Fortune and going to dinner with friends. Margaret spent the last year of her life at Towne Center Community Campus. Her family is eternally grateful for the wonderful care and support provided by the nursing home staff. Margaret was preceded in death by her father, Fredrick Compliment; mother, Mary Compliment; sister, Dorothy Compliment; husband, Nathaniel Phipps; brother-in-law, Oliver Collins; and son, Bruce Phipps.
