Phyllis ended her own life on May 24, 2005. Her obituary is from the May 9, 2005, Salt Lake Tribune.
Phyllis Marie Morley Gilson "Philly" Our Mommy, Gwama, Wife, Aunt Sister and Friend decided on May 24, 2005 to write the ending to her own life story. Philly enjoyed laughing and joking. She had a great sense of humor which allowed her to laugh at herself and others. Anyone who knew and loved her couldn't get enough of her infectious laugh. She loved spending time with her family and has 2 beautiful daughters that love her more than anything and will miss her very much. She always made sure "All her ducks were in a Row" and never hesitated when it came to "common sense." Gwama Thursdays were the highlight of her life, Shelby and Gwama would watch vivor, have nacks, take a tubby, put yotion on and nuggle in there blankdets. She was quite the scrabble player and was a blanket makin fool. She loved to wrap her homemade blankets around the people she loved. She loved nothing more than "hanging out" camping, going to Moab with her family, and getting herself a "sunburn." No one in this world could put a "lil' outfit" together better than Philly.
