In Memory of Carol Posby 


“There are special people in our lives 
that never leave us even 
after they are gone.” 

Carol Posby worked with Cheryl Phillips for 25 + years and was an integral part of the GG Foundation. Her impressive career includes earning a Master’s Degree in Communication and Public Address from Eastern Michigan University. After teaching at EMU for two years, Carol became a stockbroker for Merrill Lynch, and was the second female stockbroker with ML. Her career in telecommunications began in 1979 in marketing with Michigan Bell Telephone, and transitioned to AT&T at divestiture.   


After 30 years, Carol was able to take an early retirement, and began her career in volunteerism that she had always desired.  She was co-chair of the Farmington Hills Beautification Commission, chair of the Farmington Hills Spring Clean-Up, on the Board and Treasurer of the Farmington branch of American Association of University Women (a national organization dedicated to empowerment, education, and equity for women), President of her condo association, and enjoyed being a performer and supporter of the Beyond Belief Senior Performance group.  Carol continued her life-long passion for dancing, especially tapping. 


In Carol’s Own Words: 

I have had the pleasure and privilege of knowing Cheryl Phillips for more than 30 years. Our long-time friendship began as a business relationship when I was a manager with AT&T and she was Director of Purchasing at Masco Corporation. I have always been impressed by Cheryl’s energy, passion, and integrity. These qualities have never wavered and have always been the hallmark of her life, and they are the foundation of her commitment to improving the lives of animals in Michigan. I have learned from Cheryl that you should never pass up an opportunity to “do the right thing” - and always do it with passion. 


We will miss you!
