My deepest sympathy to Mrs. Venable's family. She was such a sweet lady and truly lived the Christian life. She was a member of the Fidelis Sunday School Class at Wesley UMC and did so much volunteer work for the church. Mrs. Venable was one of my mother's dearest friends. May she rest in peace!

Phyllis was a wonderful & kind soul. She was always so helpful for many years when I sold Avon. During those years, we always remembered each's birthday that we shared on the same day in December. RIP Phyllis.

I first met Phyllis when I moved across the street from them many, many years ago. We became instant friends. Ralph was still alive then and we had tons of fun during football season. I was a Steelers fan. I do not need to tell you the fun I had teasing them when my team beat the Cowboys. Sandra, Ralph, Phyllis, my then husband David and I played penny poker almost every weekend.. Phyllis would win and Ralph would accuse her of cheating. What fun we all had. I remember when Phyllis was in the back yard and a parrot flew into her hair. do you know, she bought a cage and had that bird for long time.. Phyllis loved dogs and was so sad when Trixie died.. when I had surgery, Phyllis came and brought me soup and her famous baked spaghetti. Due to health, moving, I lost contact except for an cards at Christmas and her birthday. I loved that silly woman. She had a chuckle that made you laugh. Need I forget Avon. She fell into that with a passion. I am proud to say, I have many Christmas broaches she sent me. Several are real my current Avon person says. Phyllis gave me a few of her costume jewelry from the 40-50 era. I wore them many times and thought of her when I wore the pieces. Sandra really is the daughter Phyllis wanted. She and Ralph lost a daughter and Sandra was the angel that came into her life. I have many stories that Phyllis told, when shee and Ralph met, living inn the mountains back east and Ralph delivering bread. and how they came to Texas. So, all this is just to say I will miss her. God Bless you Phyllis. Take care of Ralph, I am certain God has had his hands full waiting for your help.

Miss Phyllis is and will always be my favorite grandma. She was always smiling and laughing and she was part of my extended family. My heart has been heavy with sadness of her passing. But know that GOD has her in his arms. She is laughing and cutting up with all those that have gone before her. May GOD bring peace to her family here; Guy, Sandra and David and the rest. Much love Miss Phyllis!

What impressed me about Phyllis was the fact that she would beat the Pastors and sometimes Mike to the Church on Sunday mornings. We would arrive at church at different times in the morning and Phyllis would be there waiting with her lovely smile and a kind word. She was always bubbly no matter how she felt. I truly believe she will be one of the many greeters in God’s house welcoming all who enter. With that same sweet smile and kind word. What a privilege to have known such a saint.

Sandra and Family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. You will be in our hearts and prayers as you travel this most difficult road. May God bless and comfort you all.

Mom and Dad, I finally bought Joe the baseball Dad didn't buy, the day I was born. It took 64 years. We are even now.

So sorry for the family of Phyllis Venable. Sweetest lady to have known at Wesley. As Lloyd Betar mentioned - first to arrive at Wesley on Sunday morning. To add to the story, she did this to miss all the traffic in the morning. She always said if you are in a wreck and older person, she would be at fault. What a life this precious lady lived - 97 years.. God is good and we were blessed to have known her. Prays to all, what sweet memories you must have.
