Phyllis K. Bollinger, 75, of Hayes, joined her mother and father, Eck and Jane Kingery of Chesapeake, West Virginia, in heaven on March 19, 2017.
She is survived by her husband, Jerry; daughters, Alisa Johnson (David) of Gloucester, and Amy Prillaman of Newport News; son, Tony Shields of Atlanta, Georgia; stepson, Lance Pridgen of Germany; grandsons, Tyler Johnson (Jessica), Alex Johnson and Coleman Johnson, all of Gloucester; great-grandson, Brody Johnson; niece, Kim Love of Chelyan, West Virginia; a nephew, Blair Bossie of Texas. Phyllis is also stepmother, grandmother, great-grandmother to Ralph Bollinger (Rene), Cindy Davis (Scott), Brian Bollinger, Adam Bollinger, Jake Bollinger, Justin Bollinger, and Olivia Phaup (Hunter, Hudson and Monroe).
Phyllis possessed a zest for life and never encountered a stranger. She was a caring and compassionate care giver for anyone in need and was truly loved by all who knew her. Her family members were the loves of her life and she would sacrifice everything to support them in any way possible. Her greatest joy came from spending time with her family and friends. She loved traveling the world with her husband Jerry and experienced so many wonderful adventures.
She was an avid athlete who was active with her friend Louise until her diagnosis. The loss of Phyllis will leave an indelible hole in every heart of her loved ones and her many friends. We take comfort in knowing she is no longer in pain and in the arms of the Lord. Phyllis was one of God’s angels on earth and now she is soaring in heaven.
Phyllis enjoyed working at John J. McMullen from 1984-2000. She was a member of Grace Episcopal Church, Yorktown.
A memorial service conducted by the Rev. Carleton Bakkum will be at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 26, 2017, at Grace Episcopal Church. Inurnment will be private.
