Obituary for Phyllis I. Schropp

Phyllis Ilene Schropp, age 90, of South Lyon, Michigan, passed away September 3, 2020 at her home, with her daughter Lora by her side. She was born May 9, 1930 in Detroit, Michigan, daughter of the late David and M. Vivien McWhinnie. Phyllis had several career paths including clerical, caring for young children in her home, and retail sales in a Bible and book store. She loved to prepare dinners for her family and friends with the presentation being just as important as the meal. She was a gracious host to all who entered her home. She loved to visit her children and their families at their homes as well as when they came home to spend time with her. She always looked forward to visits and phone calls from family and friends. She also enjoyed walks and visiting with her neighbors along the way. Phyllis loved Christ and walked faithfully in his Word. Phyllis and Gilbert were longtime, faithful members of Brighton Assembly of God. After Gilbert's passing she attended Cornerstone EPC, with her daughter Lora and son-in-law Rick, and was active in the Prime Timers senior group and Bible study there. She was a loving and devoted wife to her husband, Gilbert for 66 years when he passed away. As a mother, she was a blessing, always loving, kind, gentle and giving. To her family, her church families, and her friends, she will always be remembered for her abiding faith, generosity and gentle spirit. To our sweet mom, we will forever hold you in our hearts. Phyllis is survived by her children: Lora (Rick) Pherson, Bob (Diana) Schropp, Nancy (Wayne) Lenig, and Connie (Larry) Mobley. She is also survived by her grandchildren: Michael (Guin) Pherson, Melanie Pherson, Brent (Elizabeth) Lenig, Kristin (Brandon) Layton, Matthew (Morgan) Mobley, Joshua Mobley and Daniel Mobley; and her great-grandchildren: Samantha, Abby, Sean, Mary Kate, and Caroline. She was preceded in death by her husband, Gilbert; her brothers: Byron McWhinnie, David (Joyce) McWhinnie, and her sister, Audrey (Jim) Fischer. Phyllis will be laid to rest beside her husband in Grandlawn Cemetery in Detroit. In lieu of flowers, donations in her honor may be made to Brighton Assembly of God, 7770 Whitmore Lake Rd., Brighton, MI 48116.
