Phyllis Byrd, 1940 - 2013

Phyllis A. Stanley, the daughter of Phillip and Dolores Byrd, passed away peacefully in her home on December 29, 2013 at the age of 73. She was born on July 10, 1940 in Hawthorne, California and had been a long time resident of Torrance.

Phyllis was a devoted and loving mother and grandmother. She always worked very hard at any job she ever had while raising her children with her ex-husband Don Stanley. She worked at State Farm Insurance as an Office Manager for 25 years before she retired.

She loved to spend time with her son and his family including all of her grandchildren in California. She also loved to take trips to Las Vegas to visit her daughter and her family and her best friend. They also spent countless hours talking on the phone which she really enjoyed.

Phyllis is survived by her loving children, Mike (Kelly) Stanley and Shelly (Lori) Stanley; grandchildren, Caitlin, Jeffrey Jr., Christopher, Cameron and Ashley; sister-in-laws, Linda and Donna and nieces, Joann and Debbie. She is preceded in death by her daughter, Lisa Stanley.

We will all miss her immensely but, she will always have a special place in our hearts and in our fondest memories.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 11, 2014 at 11am at Green Hills Memorial Chapel followed by interment in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.
