Description

The name, "Phillips", is written on the glass plate of this image of two young children posed together.

After further research, we believe these are the two oldest children of Charles Harry (1902-1972) and Florence Lorraine (Mumaw) (1904-1989) Phillips, of Mt. Jackson. They are tentatively identified as: Douglas E. Phillips (left) and his older sister, Ruby Juanita (Phillips) Rosenberger. Two additional children, Eva M. and Joanne M. Phillips, were born to this couple after this photograph was taken.

Douglas served during WWII as a Corporal in the U.S. Marines. After the war, he married Ruby Mae (Frye) in 1948. Together, they raised four children: Alicia A., Patricia L., Mary E., and Charles D. Phillips. The couple remained in the Mt. Jackson area. Douglas worked for the U.S. Post Office for thirty years before he retired.

Ruby Juanita Phillips married Richard Wayne Rosenberger in 1944. Richard was a metal worker and lived in Edinburg. His parents were Arthur Edgar and Annie May (Good) Rosenberger. At the time of their marriage, Ruby worked for the Blue Bell Company, however, the couple later moved to Charlottesville where they operated a successful prosthetic and orthotic business for 35 years. Her obituary appeared in the Daily Progress newspaper in Charlottesville and included a photograph of her in her later years.
