Phyllis Jane Searcy Warren, 73, of Old Fort, North Carolina, passed away Saturday, May 15, 2021 at the Memorial Campus of Mission Hospital in Asheville.

A member of Gethsemane Free Will Baptist Church, Phyllis was a great singer who loved listening to gospel music. She was a loving mother, and she enjoyed making precious memories with her family. Phyllis retired from Walmart following 21 years of service.

Phyllis is also survived by seven grandchildren; nine great grandchildren and one on the way; and many loving nieces and nephews.

Just like Glenn, Phyllis was so sweet to me and so welcoming. Spent alot of time with Lisa and her family. They became my own. Phyllis was funny and always tried to embarrass Lisa, it seemed, when I was there. Remember that time they invited me on an awesome trip to see John Schneider . I was so touched they thought to bring me. That trip will forever be such a part of me. Fond memories with the Warren family! Lisa, I love you dearly. Continued prayers for strength

I worked with Phyliss many years at Walmart. She was a sweet kind person. She had a beautiful voice and shared her love for Lord with others. May she Rest In Peace and sing in the big heavenly choir forever and ever.
