Phyllis Ann Edwards 66, of Early, formally of Midland, went to be with her Lord and Savior on December 26, 2020 while surrounded by family.
To plant a memorial tree in honor of Phyllis Edwards, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
Phyllis was born on February 25, 1954 to the parentage of Gerald and Dorothy Guthrie in Odessa Texas. From an early age she expressed herself through music. Although an accomplished pianist, Phyllis’s greatest passion was to bless others with her voice. Over the years, her beautiful singing touched many people from church pews to grand auditoriums. If you heard her sing you would never forget it.
A devout Christian, Phyllis and her husband Brian dedicated their time to serving others. Together they taught and gave to those in need and supported those who could go where they were not able to go. Her spiritual legacy extends from infants to the elderly.
Phyllis drew great strength from the beauty of God’s creation. Mountains, oceans, sunsets to moonlight, all gave her joy. It was her desire and blessing to pass from their home in Central Texas where she found great peace and tranquility into the presence of Jesus. She was surrounded by her husband and children. Phyllis gave of herself sacrificially with great love and always a warm smile. Everyone she met felt the love of God in her heart and the glow of God’s light in her eyes. She was and is still, uniquely created. Blessed with amazing musical talent, creative abilities, intelligent witty and always with wonderful humor.
Not only did she make an impact in the lives of many, she also brought hope and much encouragement to those who were hurting.
Mrs. Edwards is survived by her husband of best friend of 24 years, Brian Edwards, her brother Billy Guthrie, son Colin Carter, daughter Serette Smith; and twin grandsons Nathan and Zachary Smith.
A virtual Celebration of Life memorial will be set up in the next several weeks to include anyone who would like to share and contribute their thoughts and feelings and stories to honor an incredible woman. She will be greatly missed.
