February 23, 1957 - September 23, 2018
Phyllis Ann Marshall was transformed with peace and grace, in the serenity of the midnight hour, on Sunday, September 23rd, 2018. To say she was loved by many is an understatement. The love story begins with her birth on Saturday, February 23rd, 1957, in Fort Worth, Texas, to proud parents Katie Mae Jones and Ralph Coleman. Phyllis attended Fort Worth ISD Schools where she was known for her outgoing and larger than life personality. She is a Paul Lawrence Dunbar Alumni; class of 1975. It was in school that she began friendships that lasted her entire life. She was known to many as a loving and trusted friend. Phyllis worked for many years in customer service, which came naturally to her because she loved people and was always helping others. Her hobbies included a love for cooking, which she discovered at an early age, as well as, singing and most of all shopping! Phyllis sang beautiful soprano with many choirs including the Fort Worth City Wide Choir, These are They Choir and the Young Adult Choir at Highland Park Baptist Church. Her favorite activities involved her church life. She was a member of Greater Friendship Baptist Church, Highland Park Baptist Church, First Saint John Cathedral and Jericho Road Baptist Church. She was a faithful member who was always working with the choir and the youth departments. Phyllis was a spiritual woman, with a deep love for Christ. Her walk God goes back to her childhood. Anyone who knew her knows she was strongly connected to our Heavenly Father and was always speaking of His goodness. She encouraged others in their walk with God as well. Her faith in God was unshakeable. Phyllis loved children. She always had someone’s baby or child with her. On July 28, 1989, God blessed her with her very own beautiful daughter, Kirsten Nyonne Bosilikwa, whom she nicked named “Kyonne”. Kyonne was her mother’s passion, her pride and joy, and her LIFE. Kyonne is a faithful and loving daughter who took care of her mother until she transitioned. For 29 years, Phyllis’s life was centered around her daughter, whom she raised to be a strong, loving, respectful and most of all God fearing young lady. Her pride in Kyonne was very evident as she was often the topic of Phyllis’s conversations. Their relationship is an example of unconditional love between a mother and daughter. Phyllis is preceded in death by her father, Ralph Coleman, her brother Lucius Earl McCuin, as well as, many other beloved family members. She leaves a legacy of love thru those survived by her: daughter Kirsten Nyonne Bosilikwa (Tony), mother Katie Mae Jones; brother Larry Darnell Marshall, sister Linda Bernell Williams, and brother Lester Bernard Marshall. On her father’s side (Coleman/McDonald) Phyllis shared a loving relationship with 16 living brothers and sisters as well. Phyllis leaves behind very special aunts, uncles and close cousins who loved and cared for her from birth. Phyllis will be tremendously missed by a host of nieces and nephews, who affectionately called her “Aunt Phi Phi” and whom she showered with so much love and cared for of as her own. Last but not least, her legacy of love will continue thru very special lifelong friendships with Kelvin, Sherri, Sonceria, Bessie, Leonard, Alma, Lori and Thomas, just to name a few. She is remembered with love and adoration by so many. Phyllis Ann, may your transition into perfection be beautiful and peaceful. You have left an imprint of love on our lives and you will live in our hearts forever!
