Jo Ann Phillips-Anderson Obituary

On the spring morning of March 26, 1958, Blanche and Clayton Phillips welcomed their
beautiful daughter Jo Ann into their Caryville, Florida household. She was the youngest of four
girls, who lived a full life until May 26, 2023, when she transitioned to the heavenly home.
Growing up in Caryville, Jo Ann attended St. Mary’s Elementary School and Vernon High
School. After graduating from Vernon in 1976, she received an associate degree from Chipola
Junior College and then attended University of South Florida in Tampa.

In Tampa she met her former husband, Warren Anderson, Sr. and they welcomed their
three children, Warren Edwin Anderson, Jr. (predeceased), Clayton Phillip Anderson, and Andrea
Larissa-Shantel Anderson.

During adulthood, Jo Ann resided in Tampa, Florida; Satellite Beach, Florida; Sacramento,
California; St Paul, Minnesota; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Dallas, Texas. She worked for
FedEx for more than thirty years before retiring.

In each city Jo Ann lived, she always found a church home and became an active member
from ushering to teaching children’s classes, leading the single’s ministry, to becoming a licensed

ordained minister. That commitment to Christ and to living a Christian life began at the Spirit-
Filled Church of God in Christ in Caryville under the leadership of Elder Gene Banks.

Jo Ann leaves to mourn her parents Clayton and Blanche Phillips of Wimauma and
Caryville, her children: Phillip & Charity Anderson of Shreveport, Louisiana, Larissa Anderson of
Dallas, Texas, Janelle Anderson (Widow) of Columbus, Ohio. Through her children’s marriages,
she became a grandmother, known only as “Gigi.” Her grandchildren are Jasiya Maranne
Anderson, Jourdan Edwin Anderson, Jaxon Lamar Anderson from Janelle and Edwin’s marriage.
Phillip and Charity Anderson gave her Amaryse Yelena Anderson and Camden Josiah Anderson.
They all filled her life with joy.

She also leaves to mourn her siblings: Bettye Davis of Caryville, Florida; Brenda
“BJ” (Celestin) Biandudi of Wimauma; Evelyn Newman Phillips of New Britain, Connecticut; her
aunts and uncle: Ernestine Works; Athalene Tolden (Robert predeceased); and Leamon Phillips
(Elosie). Plus, many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

She is a descendant of Columbus “Bud” and Ella Phillips, her paternal grandparents of
Caryville and Carrie Newman Roberts, her maternal grandmother of Caryville, (all predeceased).

In her spare time, she enjoyed photography, collecting dolls and crystal glassware.
