How do I turn off Microsoft account contact list?

I'm personalizing my mom's phone and her contact list is all messed up. We've got it pulling information from her Google account (which is what she wants/needs) but it's also pulling from the "Microsoft Account" which has incorrect information.

Her last phone went screwy I believe the people at Verizon (in trying to salvage information on her phone) pulled in the contact list incorrectly and all the numbers got messed up. Funny, and annoying, since she didn't need her contact list imported since it was all on the cloud anyway.

Tap on the People tile. Tap on the Menu (three dots) and then on Settings.
Tap on Filter my contact list and uncheck your Microsoft Account.
You will now only see contacts and information from your Google account.
