  1. So sorry to hear about the death of Phyllis Mack, I had the pleasure of working with Phyllis for several years at Bath County Community Hospital and enjoyed every minute we were able to chat and talk when time permitted. My most fondest memories of Phyllis was her kind smile and her God given talent of cake baking and decorating.
    Family please lean on the scripture of Matthew 5:4- Blessed are those that mourn, for they shall be comforted.

    Heaven has definitely gained another Angel and let’s rejoice in the presence of the Lord for accepting another loved one into His heavenly home.

  2. Donald & Family:
    Eddie and I and Gail send our deepest sympathy in the loss of Phyllis.
    She was always such a sweet person. We know she will be greatly missed.
    Peggy, Eddie Ryder & Gail
