Obituary for Phyllis Lapsley
On September 2, 1977, a star was born named Phyllis Saroya Lapsley to Thomas and Wanda Lapsley. Phyllis accepted Christ at an early age as a member of Johnson Temple Church of God and Christ. She was free-spirited, witty, and compassionate. She always knew how to make those around her laugh. After being diagnosed in 2007 with stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Phyllis made it a point to witness to others fighting the fight against cancer. She, being the fighter that she was, did not let her diagnosis defeat her. Phyllis went on to obtain a Bachelors of Science degree in Social Science and a minor in Psychology.
