January 26, 1958 ~ April 27, 2021 (age 63)


Phyllis Anne Williams, loving wife, mother, Nana, daughter, sister and friend passed away to join her Heavenly Father at the age of 63 on April 27, 2021. Phyllis was born on January 26, 1958 in Longview, Texas to Leon and Betty Wilson. She stole David Williams' heart and married him on May 27, 1978. They raised their family together both in Gilmer and Longview, Texas. Family was the focal point of her life and she considered her greatest accomplishment to be being a loving mother and grandmother. As a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, she was a pillar of strength and spiritual light to all that knew her. Phyllis strongly believed her family would be together forever. She will live in our hearts and be our forever angel.
