Phyllis Hardin DeBord
Wednesday 21st of May 1941 - Wednesday 13th of October 2021
Phyllis Hardin DeBord, age 80, passed away 10/13/21, at the Willows at Fritz Farm, Lexington, Ky where she was cared for with love, dignity and respect for the past 1 ½ years. She was born to the late Arless and Alma Hardin on May 21, 1941 in Rogersville, TN. Phyllis graduated from Clinch Valley High School and continued to Business School. She became a Bookkeeper by trade. She married her high school sweetheart, the late Truman DeBord, on 9/20/1961. They lived in East Tennessee for several years and after many years in the Ministry, retired in Middlesboro, KY.
Phyllis was preceded in death by her parents, Arless (Alma) Hardin, her infant sister, Jeanette, her husband, Truman and her Grandson, Justin Younce. Phyllis is survived by her daughter, Elaine (Rick) Younce of Nicholasville, KY, Grandson, Austin (Morgan) Younce, and two beautiful Great Granddaughters Blake and Rowan.
Phyllis was very proud of her family and left behind nothing but wonderful memories of her kindness and never-failing love. She lived her life in support of others. She enjoyed cooking for others and serving as a caretaker for her parents and husband. As her husband served in the Ministry, she was always by his side, visiting families with him or preparing and serving meals. She embodied the compassion of a Pastor’s wife. If you entered her home, you weren’t going to leave empty handed.
We had the pleasure of spending a wonderful thanksgiving with this beautiful lady , She was so loving towards her great granddaughter Blake . My prayer go out to Elaine and Austin knowing how they will certainly miss her . I could tell the love that came from her towards her family , truly beautiful. Now she’s in the arms of Jesus and home .
