Phyllis Katherine Scarberry

May 30, 1943 - November 6, 2023

05/30/1943 - 11/06/2023

Phyllis Katherine Scarberry, a beloved wife, friend, and inspiration to all who knew her, passed away on November 6, 2023, in Virginia Beach, Virginia surrounded by her family and friends. She was born on May 30, 1943, in Norfolk, Virginia, to the late Wallace and Ruby Barry. She was blessed with a life full of love, joy, and cherished memories.

Throughout her life, Phyllis dedicated herself to her work as a business office supervisor for Verizon. Her strong work ethic and determination left a lasting impact on those she worked with, earning her the admiration and respect of her colleagues.

Beyond her professional achievements, Phyllis had a passion for spending time with her family and friends. She found immense happiness in their company, cherishing every moment shared together. Whether it was organizing family gatherings or simply enjoying lazy days at the beach, her warm presence and kind-hearted nature touched the lives of those around her.

Phyllis is survived by her loving husband, Dennis Scarberry, who stood by her side through the various seasons of life. Their enduring love and unwavering support for each other served as an inspiration to all who witnessed their bond. Brothers, Wallace “skip” C. Barry & wife Debra and Frederick “Freddy” o. Barry & wife Connie; many more extended family members and friends.

Her departure leaves a void in the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to know her. However, her legacy of love, kindness, and resilience serves as a beacon of hope, encouraging us all to embrace life’s challenges with grace and determination.

Though we mourn the loss of Phyllis Katherine Scarberry, we also celebrate the incredible life she lived and the impact she had on everyone she encountered. May her memory continue to inspire us to treasure the moments we share with our loved ones and to approach the world with compassion and love.

Rest in peace, dear Phyllis. You will be forever missed, but your spirit will live on in our hearts and in the memories we hold dear.

Dear Dennis,
I am so sorry to hear of Phyllis’ passing. I remember attending one of your wonderful Christmas parties, as well as Super Bowl Sunday lunch with the “Ford gang”.
My hubby Paul had told me so many stories of karaoke, fishing and other gatherings with you and Phyllis – your kindness and generosity were always so appreciated.
May the days ahead be filled with love and comfort by those that loved her.
Many Blessings,
Jackie Harris (widow of Paul Harris)
