Joan J Phillips passed away peacefully May 14, 2019 in her home in Tucson, AZ surrounded by friends and family, after bravely battling an aggressive cancer. She was a beloved wife, mother, sister, friend, & grandmother.
She delivered well over 1000 children in Arizona. She was a pioneer, developing home birth options for Northern AZ and starting Women Care Midwifery in Flagstaff, AZ.
Joan touched many lives with her strength, generosity, wonderful sense of humor, beautiful smile, timeless wisdom, loyalty and loving friendships. She was survived by her husband Terry Barkacs, her children Jared, Chelsea and Laurel, grand baby Journie DayStar & her sisters Jonna Ferguson, Barbara Wanlass and many other sister-friends and extended family! She will be missed by all.
