On Wednesday, December 25, 2019 Phyllis Ann Dunning passed away peacefully at Christwood Retirement Home Community in Covington, Louisiana. Phyllis is preceded in death by her parents, Arthur and Anne Dunning. Phyllis is survived by her sister and brother in law, Linda and Cliff Hughes, and three nieces. Born in Asheville, NC. Phyllis was employed as an administrator for Social and Rehab Services for the state of Kansas for 19 years. A valued member for Stephens Ministry for 12 years and was active with the Christwood Singers. Phyllis retired to Mandeville and joined St. Timothy UMC on the Northshore. She treasured her many friends at Christwood as well as her pet cat “Bart”. Honorable mention to the late Phil Fischer for his friendship during her last years at Christwood. Phyllis was diagnosed with multiple Sclerosis 35 years ago; she did not let that define her. Phyllis took numerous trips and vacations while helping others the best she could. The family wishes to thank the staff at Christwood and St. Tammany Hospice for their care and help during her last few months. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Christwood Atrium on January 3, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers contributions can be made to the Northshore Humane Society.
