Governor Cooper in Executive Order 125 dated May 14, 2021 lifted the face mask requirement for most situations. The order states “it remains critical that North Carolinians exercise personal responsibility to protect themselves and their friends and neighbors from the spread of COVID-19, and the undersigned (The Governor) and the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services continue to identify Face Coverings, social distancing, and washing hands as best practices.”
The safety of our client families, guests, and employees is of upmost importance to us at Phillips Funeral Home, so we ask that unvaccinated persons continue to wear facemasks while in our facilities. And we encourage all to continue to follow the three “W” safety practices of: wear a mask, wait six feet apart, and wash hands frequently.

Phillips Funeral Home was established in 1907. Hayes Downing Phillips became the founder in an era when wagons served as hearses and caskets were handmade by R. R. Riddle of High Falls. His son, Melvin, took over the operation of the funeral home in 1945 and proved to be an asset to the town of Star by managing the business, operating an emergency ambulance service, and giving back to his community through civic affairs. After Melvin's untimely death in 1967, his wife and son, Mitchell and Riley, continued the operation.
In 1968, Riley became the third generation owner and manager. In 1976, his wife, Marilyn, joined him as funeral director and office manager. They, along with a compassionate staff, strive to stay abreast of changes in the funeral industry while continuing to offer personal service to those in need.
In early 2017 Riley and Marilyn Phillips contacted Pugh Funeral Home, and we joined operations in March 2017.
The death of someone we care about can be one of the most difficult experiences of life. Words seem inadequate to describe how painful the grief we feel can be. It is often much more challenging than we expect and than others seem to think. Read More
