Dallas – Phyllis Ballard Warnock, 84, entered into heaven on May 6, 2023. She passed peacefully at Robin Johnson House with her family by her side.

She was a member of the First Assembly of God, Gastonia, where she was active for many years. She and Ed were married in Mt. Holly, and raised their family at Little Rock Pentecostal Holiness Church, Lowell, NC.

Mary Ann Shope Burris (James); her grandchildren, Hannah Hicks Braddock (Austen), Rebekah Harrington, Colin Harrington (Haley), Claire Hicks Gouch (Trey), Trey Burris, Trevor Burris (Marissa); great grandchildren, Barron Lee Braddock, Charlotte Rose Braddock and Zoe James Gouch; her siblings, David Ballard (Sarah), Reggie Ballard (Clarise), Delores Ballard Gill (Ronnie)as well as many dear nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

The family will receive friends at Parkwood Baptist Church on Saturday, May 13th from 2:00 until 3:00 p.m. prior to the service at 3:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary with Pastor Mike Rice officiating.
