Telling Her Story….

Phyllis Ann Wilson Lacy was born November 9, 1955 to the late William “Buddy” Wilson and Norma Jean Sizemore.

Phyllis Ann Wilson Lacy is survived by her estranged husband, Thomas I. Lacy; children Richard Wilson (Yolanda), Deangela Wilson (Victor), and Brandi Lacy; siblings Norman Sizemore (Donna), Donna Wilson, Damon Wilson (Vickie), and Angie Johnson, and numerous grandchildren, family and friends.


Phyllis loved to tell stories and loved people. She observed life and formed opinions but she wasn’t very interested in politics and world events. Phyllis had a very personal relationship with Jesus. The granddaughter of a preacher, she loved to serve and sing as a young child.

As the years went by Phyllis was baptized as an adult, but struggled to find a church home as she joined several churches throughout her life. But she was not shy to tell anyone that she knew

Jesus and what you didn’t hear her say you witnessed in the way she treated people.


As a child of less than a year Phyllis survived thyroid cancer and it was believed that she would never be able to have children. She had her first child at the age of eighteen(a son), her second at the age of 22(a daughter), and her third right after her marriage to Thomas Lacy(a daughter).

Marriage proved difficult and after over a decade together they were estranged until her death.

Even through a very difficult marriage there was no denying Phyllis’ love of life, her children, and people. She always had a smile and a listening ear. And if there was any way that she could help, she would do what she could from helping countless people during sickness and surgery as they recovered to feeding someone hungry. In the Bible James says, “But someone will say, “you have Faith and I have works.” Show me your Faith without works, and I will show you Faith by my works.”

Anyone who had the opportunity to know Phyllis and be around her can attest to the truth of that.
