Phyllis Provence McMullanDecember 1, 1933 ~ March 31, 2017 (age 83)
Phyllis Provence McMullan, age 83, of Franklin, NC, passed away Friday, March 31, 2017. She was born in Johnson County, Kentucky, the daughter of the late Sherman and Hattie VanHoose Lemaster. In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband, George B. McMullan, II, her former husband Joe K. Provence and four sisters, and five brothers.
Phyllis was the youngest of 10 children and was always proud of the fact that she was the baby of her family. She had a 45 year career of being a hairdresser and that was her passion. She owned her own salon "Plaza Hairstyling" for many years and only because of health reasons did she lay down her shears at 75 years old. She loved making women beautiful.
She truly loved life to the fullest, thru sewing, bowling, golfing, dancing and traveling the world.
She is survived by two daughters, Debra Ann Miller and Jocelyn "Jody" Provence both of Franklin, NC; step‑granddaughter, Ashley Miller Burnett (Teddy), four step‑great‑granddaughters, Lexi, Layla, Mya and Sophie Burnett; step‑children, Debi McMullan Oliva (Winston) and George "Tripp"McMullan, III, and three step‑grandchildren, Kristen, Ryan and Lauren of Florida.
The family invites all of Phyllis's family and friends to come and celebrate her life with them Saturday, April 22nd at 2:00 pm in the Chapel of Bryant‑Grant Funeral Home and Crematory with visitation from 1:00 until 2:00 pm.
