Phyllis Collier Obituary

     Phyllis Collier, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully on November 13, 2023, in Valley, Alabama. Born on June 13, 1940, in Langdale, Alabama, Phyllis was a beacon of love, kindness, and gentleness, whose life was marked by her unwavering dedication to her family and community.

     Phyllis was the cherished wife of Henry Collier, with whom she shared a beautiful journey of love and companionship. She was the proud mother of three daughters, Whitney McElvy (Joe), Joan Hussey (Randy), and Jerri Miles (Tim), who will forever remember her nurturing spirit and unconditional love. Phyllis's legacy also extends to her grandchildren, Joseph McElvy (Tracy), Erin Cotney (Jacob), Meg Hudmon (Dustin), Lacee Andrews, Brandon Hussey, Colton Hussey, Halee Johnson (Michael), and Zach Miles (Bailie), as well as her nine great-grandchildren, who were the joy of her life. Phyllis was the dear sister of James "Bud" Williams (Patsy), and their bond was a testament to the deep-rooted family values that Phyllis held dear. Her family was her world, and she was theirs. Her love and care extended beyond her immediate family, touching the lives of everyone she met.

     She was preceded in death by her parents, James “Jack” Williams and Marie Williams.

     Phyllis was a dedicated member of the Lanett Congregational Christian Church, where she served her community with grace and humility. Her faith was a guiding light in her life, and she lived her beliefs through her actions, always ready to lend a helping hand to those in need.

     Phyllis had a passion for sewing, a skill she honed over the years, creating beautiful pieces that were a reflection of her creativity and attention to detail. She also loved working outside, finding joy in the simple pleasures of nature. Her love for travel was another facet of her vibrant personality. She cherished the memories created on family trips, exploring new places, and experiencing different cultures.

     Phyllis's life was a tapestry of love, kindness, and gentleness. She was a woman of strength, resilience, and grace, whose spirit will continue to live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved her. Her memory will be cherished by her family, friends, and all those whose lives were touched by her kindness. As we remember Phyllis, we celebrate a life beautifully lived and a soul that touched so many. She will be deeply missed, but her spirit will live on in the hearts of her loved ones.
