Bob and Bebe Phillips of Hemet, California, celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary Feb. 14, 2017 — Valentine's Day.
They were married Feb. 14, 1952, at St. Peters Lutheran Church in Medford and have three children — David (and Barbara) Phillips of Bend, Debra Phillips, and Darcy Phillips of Hemet — five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
Bob met Bebe Millsaps at Southern Oregon College, and he started teaching at Washington School when E.H. Hedrick was superintendent. He later served as principal at Oak Grove, West Side and Jefferson schools in Medford.
Bebe, born in Medford, worked as a real estate agent at Hight Real Estate and later, at Greater Oregon Real Estate. Being ardent golfers, they memorialized the day by playing a round of golf and dining out at the Anchor Club in Hemet with their daughter, Darcy Phillips.
