Phyllis Gibbs

November 24, 1950 ~ January 24, 2023 (age 72) 72 Years Old



Mrs. Phyllis Dianne Butt Gibbs passed away on January 24, 2023 from complications associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

Phyllis was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, and sister who will be missed dearly by all of her family and friends.  She was born in Norfolk, VA, the daughter of Thomas and Mary Butt.  Her father was a Quaker preacher, and the family lived in a number of locations during Phyllis’s childhood years.  In 1965, they moved to Centre Friends Meeting in Greensboro, NC, where she met her future husband, Tom Gibbs, Jr.  Phyllis and Tom married in 1972, and over the next 51 years raised two children together and were proud to have ten grandchildren.  She was active in the Quaker ministry, including her work with the United Society of Friends Women.  She also loved crafting, and many of her reed baskets, stuffed snowmen, and other handmade items decorate the homes of countless family members and friends.

Phyllis is survived by her loving husband, Tom Gibbs; son, Ike Gibbs (Kimberly); daughter, Jennifer Thompson (Carl); mother, Mary Butt; sister, Anne Caudle (Scott); and her grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 29, in the chapel of Cumby Family Funeral Service in Archdale with Rev. Terry Venable and Rev. Wallace Sills officiating.  The family will receive friends immediately following the service at the funeral home.

The family would like to thank the amazing staff at Pennybyrn for the love and care they gave her over the past year.  Phyllis always loved music/dancing and the Pennybyrn staff used dancing as a way to keep her active.  She will be dancing with them always.  In lieu of flowers, Phyllis’s family asks that you consider a memorial contribution to Pennybyrn at Maryfield (pennybyrnliving.com) or to the Alzheimer’s Association.
