Phyllis M. Jarrett


Phyllis M. Jarrett, 84, of Dewey, Okla., and previously of Edmond, Okla., passed away Saturday, Sept. 1, 2018 in Dewey. Memorial services are scheduled for 1 p.m., Friday, Sept. 14, 2018 at the First Christian Church in Edmond with Reverend Chris Shorow officiating.

Phyllis was born July 8, 1934 in Holdenville, Okla., to Ralph and Evelyn Tucker McLean. She was a lifelong learner and teaching was her passion. During her career, Phyllis taught Junior High English and reading, was an elementary school principal, as well as becoming a reading specialist for the State Department of Education in Oklahoma. Before she retired, she was a reading instructor and a student teacher advisor for the University of Central Oklahoma.
Phyllis loved to travel and took beautiful photographs of the people and places she visited. Her daddy loved St. Louis Cardinal baseball and so did Phyllis, remaining a devoted fan throughout her life. She was an avid reader, both for pleasure and to stay informed of local, national and world events. She was delighted to spend time with her family and large circle of close friends and was a fierce advocate of anyone and anything she loved and believed in.
She is survived by her companion, Gladys Dronberger of the home, a daughter, Linda and her husband Jim Moore of Bartlesville, Okla., along with their son, Jarrett, and daughter, Cara; a son, Robert and his wife Jill Laney Jarrett of Portland, Ore.; son-in-law, Chris Cauthon of Tulsa, Okla.; and a host of treasured friends.
Phyllis was preceded in death by her parents, Ralph and Evelyn Tucker McLean, a son, John Jarrett, and her daughters, Lisa Jarrett and Carol Jarrett.
