Description

We invite you to join in celebrating the life of our friend and colleague Phyllis Burnett.

Phyllis was born on October 14, 1955 in Bryson City, North Carolina, and lived a life characterized by hard work, dedication, and community service. After graduating from Meredith College in Raleigh, North Carolina, Phyllis began working for the STD Division at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 1976. Her career with the CDC spanned four decades, and included work throughout the United States, including Florida, Atlanta, New York City, Arizona, and Baltimore. Phyllis spent the past 15 years serving as the Assistant STD Program Manager at the Baltimore City Health Department, where she worked tirelessly to create a healthier Baltimore.

Surrounded by her brother and good friends, Phyllis passed away on November 30, 2017 following surgical complications. She will be missed greatly and remembered as a champion and advocate of the communities she served in Baltimore and across the United States.

A GoFundMe has been set up at https://www.gofundme.com/phyllis-burnett-memorial to provide an opportunity for those touched by her life and legacy to contribute to her memorial service. Any additional funds will be donated to causes important to Phyllis, including the Gettysburg Historical Society (of which Phyllis was a member), and to establish a scholarship at Meredith College.

We will be setting up a website for those who would like to share their remembrances of Phyllis. Please check back for additional updates regarding the website, as well as any updates on the service, within the next few days.

Update: There will be parking available for $5 at the Fayette Street garage directly across the street from the Helping Up Mission.
