Phyllis Sullivan

We are sad to announce the passing of Phyllis Young Sullivan(Age 80).

The Lord called her home on August 10, 2022.  She was a beautiful person who always brought joy and happiness to everyone. She was like a mother to so many especially those whose own mother had passed away. At the request of Phyllis, no funeral nor memorial service will be held.

Phyllis was born to William Henry Young and Thelma E. Adams in Philadelphia, PA on July 24, 1942, she was raised in North Philadelphia and spent her entire life in the City of Brotherly Love.

God called her parents and siblings Edith, Sherry, and William Henry Young, Jr home years ago and she was the last member of the family to be called home. Phyllis was educated in the School District of Philadelphia and worked for many as a seamstress. She also worked as Philadelphia School Crossing Guard for many years until she retired in 2004.

Phyllis was wed in holy matrimony to Wille James Sullivan in 1959 and they had one child a daughter Elease, Wille James passed away in 1987. Phyllis is survived by her only child Elease, granddaughter Skye, niece Stacy, nephews Cliff, Anthony, and Shawn, and hosts of cousins, family, friends, and her beloved cat Barry.


“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”

Revelation 21:4


With Sorrow and Blessings,
