Phyllis Ann Wood, of Conway, passed away peacefully after her courageous battle with cancer on July 29, 2019 at the age of 72.

Phyllis was born on November 3, 1946 in Roanoke, Virginia to William and Sylvia (Hall) Bernard. She retired after 28 years from the Conway Human Development Center. She was a Christian, she loved animals and was a faithful contributor to A.S.P.C.A. She always found humor in everything, and was an expert at making everyone laugh.
