Janice Phillips Larrick
Much has been written and said about Janice Phillips Larrick – her love of family and community, her generosity, and significant support of so many worthy causes such as The Butler Symphony Orchestra, Butler County Community College, the YMCA, The Butler Library, The Musical Theater Guild, the Butler County Community Kindergarten and her ever-present binding faith underlying all.
We, at The Maridon, had a unique and special relationship with Janice Larrick starting even before the museum was a thought in the universe. You see, Janice and Mary Hulton Phillps, Founder of The Maridon Museum, were sisters-in-law as well as good friends. Each of them shared an incredible sense of humor as well as devotion to family and community. We like to think of them as laughing together and sharing their stories again.
Janice and her husband Harold were Founding Members of the museum and continued to embrace and support Mrs. Phillips’ Legacy throughout the years. Harold was one of our first Docent Tour Guides, and we are happy to say, continues in that role with us to this day. Janice and Harold also gave that gift most precious to all, their time.
What a magnificent team.
