**In Loving Memory: Phyllis Myers, A Beacon of Love and Strength**
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Phyllis Myers, a woman whose indomitable spirit and unwavering love for her family and community left an indelible mark on all who were fortunate to cross her path. Phyllis, 67, of Cartersville, Georgia, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, October 25, 2023.
Born in the bustling city of Atlanta, Georgia, on January 23, 1956, to Robert Harkins and Lottie Pearl White Harkins, Phyllis was a woman who emanated warmth and vitality from her earliest days. She was the epitome of strength, wrapped in kindness, sealed with an effervescent feistiness that defined her unique character.
Phyllis is preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Lottie Pearl Harkins; her beloved grandson, Mason; her cherished granddaughter, Cashlynn Charlotte; her brothers, Richard White, Boby Harkins, Eddie Harkins, and George Harkins; and her sisters, Linda Sullivan and Rosland Harkins. Yet, her spirit and her legacy live on through her devoted daughters, Tabitha Bell, Linda Cabrena, and Crystal Bell, and her adoring grandchildren, among others.
This matriarch is survived by her grandchildren—Cody Snipes, III, Kira Elliot, Michael Baty, Charisma Sysun, Cheyenne Verdin, Matt Stewart, Dakota Grace Robinson, Katie Robinson, Hayden Cabrera, Alexis Cabrera, and Brilynn Stewart—each of whom she adored as if they were her very own treasures. Her love also extends to her surviving sisters, Jackie Davis and Carolyn Moulder, and her brother, Gene Harkins, all of whom will carry a part of her within them forever.
Phyllis was many things to many people—a doting mother, a dedicated sister, a cherished daughter, an adored aunt, a loving cousin, a treasured grandmother, a proud great-grandmother, and a dependable friend. She was a firecracker of a woman who never hesitated to speak her mind, yet her words were often the stitches that sewed broken hearts back together. She was the first responder in moments of crisis, not because she had to be, but because she couldn't be any other way.
To honor this extraordinary woman, a Celebration of Life for Phyllis will be held on Saturday, November 4, 2023. The visitation is scheduled from 5:00 PM until 6:00 PM, followed by the service at 6:00 PM. The arrangements have been entrusted to Parnick Jennings Good Shepherd Funeral Home.
