Phyllis Buckley, 71, peacefully passed on Monday, October 19th, 2020 in the care of Hospice of Savannah.
She was born in Ridgeland, South Carolina to Shuford and Dorothy Malphrus. After graduating from Beaufort High School, she attended College of Charleston before marrying Robert Buckley and welcoming two daughters.
An avid reader, Phyllis’s love of books led her to her job with the Beaufort County Library until her retirement. She was a “keeper of things”, somehow always having whatever you needed. She enjoyed falling asleep to the sound of rain, read every book about winter ever published, and preferred the night sky to the morning sun. Most importantly, she had immense love for her grandchildren.
She will be greatly missed by two daughters, Erin Bower (Brian), and Shannon Cooper (Scott); four grandchildren, Hallie, Ian, Ava, and Emma; three sisters, Darlene Bollack, Lynn Westbury, and Susan Kopanski, and one brother, Eddie Malphrus.Print This Obituary & Condolences
