October 25, 1963 - March 22, 2021
Phyllis Jo Kelley Carter Liberty, South Carolina Phyllis Jo Kelley Carter, 57, gained her wings on Monday March 22, 2021. Her death was the result of an accidental overdose which has left her family devastated. We will honor Phyllis’ life at a service at 11:00am on Saturday, March 27, 2021 at Emmanuel Full Gospel Tabernacle, 10 North Circle Drive, Piedmont, SC 29673. She was born October 25, 1963 as the first child of Maurice and Jo Kelley. Phyllis never wanted to be defined by her mistakes or addiction. She was once a beautiful, loving, fun, free-spirited, smart lady who fell into the grips of addiction for many years. She was outspoken, very feisty, loved to talk, loved music and was an avid Clemson Tiger football fan. Her sense of humor, was unique, but those who knew and understood her loved her wit. She loved her family and friends deeply. As her family, we chose to speak about her addiction and recovery. Phyllis had found recovery; her life had changed for almost two years. March 2021 (a few weeks ago) she chose to use again and this time it took her life. She does not want this for others. She wants people to know there is hope, faith and recovery. Our prayer is that this honest obituary will help save at least one person. Please do whatever you can to fight it so that another family does not have to feel what every one of us, who has lost a loved one to overdose, is feeling right now. She leaves behind her parents: Maurice and Jo Kelley; a daughter Briana Plyler; a granddaughter Gabrielle; a sister Melissa “Sissy” Henderson (John); brother Tony Kelley. Along with nieces: Jamie Broome (Monty), Jessie Bryant and Erin Kelley; nephews Zak Bryant and Kase Kelley; four great-nieces and a great-nephew expected in May 2021. The family will be at the home of her parents in Easley, SC. Mountain View Funeral Home is serving the Kelley family.
