    We will miss our sister loved her dearly

    • Barb F says:

      Phyllis became a dear friend to many in our sm grp Bible study in Gilbert Az. Always made us laugh, but she loved learning what God’s word said. We were sad when she moved. But her health was not good and we understood.

  2. Paul and Janice Godwin says:

    A major part of my life was my sisterhood friendship with Phyllis. She was more than a friend to me. She was my voice of wisdom and life’s unexpected journeys. As I look back on the years, she was there for me, even through my darkest times.

    She was a woman of God. Her faith never wavered. She was an inspiration to all who knew her. I use to tell her that when life threw me off course, I always asked “What would Phyllis do?” I will continue to ask that question for the rest of my life.

    You will be missed by many, my friend. Hey…save a seat for me at the table.

  3. Jo White says:

    The picture above captures my memory of a Phyllis, her big smile, bigger laugh, and biggest heart. My family and I have been blessed to know Phyllis, her daughter, Annette, and granddaughter, Kasey.

    “Jesus said to her, ‘I Am the resurrection and the life, whoever believes in Me, though he die, yet shall he live……Do you believe this?’”
    John 11:25-26

    Phyllis believed and it is counted to her as righteousness.
    Love and prayers,
    Bob and Jo White

  4. Curt says:

    Mom passed away peacefully October 10, 2019 at 6:48PM with the people she requested and loved, myself (her son Curtus Reynolds) daughter-in-law Missy Reynolds and niece Crystal Keathley by her side. She was surrounded by a lot of love and happiness during her passing.

    She lived life to the fullest enjoying a career as a truck driver, riding her Gold Wing and Silver Wing motorcycles, her dog Pugsley (passed), dog Bandit, quilting, sewing, spending time with family, friends and going to church. She loved reading the bible and romance novels as well.

    I am so thankful that mom asked for Missy and myself to be there and was able to share how much she loved us and appreciated everything we had done for her. We love and miss her immensely.

    I would like to thank the beautiful ladies from Cleveland Hospice for not only making sure mom was comfortable in her last weeks but also for trying to get her the proper round the clock care, knowing when that care arrived (my beautiful wife Missy) and thanking Missy for making sure that mom had the care she needed and the love she deserved. We both appreciate everything you did.

    In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Westside Baptist Church (address above).

    ***I find it sad that certain family members have to purposely misprint mom’s obituary and show such disrespect to their mom just to try to hurt other family members. Robin was extremely disrespectful to mom and has not been a part of this families nor mom’s life in many many years.
