Born November 30, 1937 in Harrison County to the late Raphael & Gertrude Beckett Patrick, she was a retired teacher for Harrison County Schools, having taught at Northside & Southside Elementary Schools for 30 years. Phyllis was a true prayer warrior, encouraging and giving comfort to anyone in need.

She served as church treasurer for 15 years, was on several committees and evangelism teams, such as Bereavement Hospitality Committee, United Methodist Women, Berean Sunday School Class, the Women’s Discipleship Study and the Wednesday Prayer Breakfast.

When not immersed in church activities, Phyllis loved to spend time outdoors walking, working in her flower garden and watching the hummingbirds. She also enjoyed painting, knitting and working puzzles.
