Due to the Executive Order from Governor Roy Cooper and guidance from the Center for Disease Control and local Health Departments we are now only able to offer private family services, private graveside services, or private visitations until further notice.
We are encouraging the public to share condolences through our website and will be offering extended hours for individuals to come by the funeral home and pay condolences outside of normal visitation hours.
The Phillips Funeral Home’ s highest priority is always the safety of our client families, community and employees.

Our staff is taking extra steps to maintain this level of care for the families we serve, our community and employees during this heightened time of awareness as a result of COVID-19.
We apologize for any inconvenience these measures cause, but by working together we can mitigate the impact this virus may have on our communities.

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
