Phyllis was born September 4, 1939, in Rosebud, Texas to William and Dessie McBride. Phyllis grew up in Hobbs, NM and then graduated high school from Southwestern Assembly of God in Waxahachie, Texas. Following school, she started her family. Phyllis was a faithful member of the First Assembly of God Church. She loved God, and shared His love with others. She had a great sense of humor, and always made others laugh.

She will be dearly missed and never forgotten.
