Shirley Elizabeth Phillips, co-founder and matriarch of the Phillips Seafood empire that stretched from Dorchester County to Southeast Asia, died Monday at a family home in Princess Anne. She was 95. No cause of death was available.

“She was a a fine lady, a working lady and an honest lady,” said former Ocean City Mayor Roland “Fish” Powell. “She did everything to promote Ocean City as a family resort — and she gave freely. She was one in a million.”

Phillips Seafood posted on its company Facebook page that Mrs. Phillips was “the heart and soul of our company…. She lived an extraordinary life and taught us all so much about leadership, loyalty, friendship and love.”
