Phyllis was born, Sunday, August 11, 1940 at home in Prague, Oklahoma to Orville B. and Velma Huff Morris and died Friday, January 27, 2023 in Marietta, Oklahoma at the age of 82 years, 5 months and 16 days. There were many facets to Phyllis’s life and the following is just a snippet of what she was all about. She adored animals, not only would she take care of her own pets, but she took care of many strays. She would donate resources and money to local shelters and organizations like the ASPCA. One of her many passions was yard work and tending to her big garden. She loved the feel of dirt between her fingers. She volunteered her time at Mercy Hospital in Healdton. She enjoyed doing word search puzzles. She had a big heart and showed compassion and love to all. She never met a stranger…she could and would talk to anyone and by the time the conversation was over, she would know them as a long-time friend. She had a beautiful smile and a laugh that would light up a room. Because of her short stature, sometime the only way to find her in a store was to hear her laugh! She loved her family and friends. She always looked out for them and was there when she was needed. You always see her with her sister Gwen (they were known as Thelma and Louise) running around town and causing trouble.
