Phyllis, age 82, was called home by our Lord on March 17, 2022, in Mustang Oklahoma from natural causes. Phyllis was born on July 12, 1939, in New Orleans, Louisiana and graduated from Southeastern Lab High School Class of 1957. She attended Southeastern University and was a Lionette. She worked for the State Dept. of Revenue until she met her love and surviving husband Charles “Sonny” Newsom Sr. of Baton Rouge. They were married on July 7, 1959. She and Sonny have three children. She worked as a teacher’s aide at Glen Oaks, River Oaks, Tara and Central for several years. Her passion and love centered around family and especially the annual Morrison Thanksgiving gathering of all families and friends. These gatherings were a treasure that she looked forward to every year. They made their home in Central until the flood of 2016, which unfortunately took their home. They relocated in 2016 to Mustang, Oklahoma to be closer to their daughter and son in law.
