I knew Mrs Varner as a student of her husband (Mr Cbarles Varner) in the W&M Band. They were so supportive of current and former students, and I found visits with them as an alum to be a great delight. They were both sweet people, both role models, and both had wide ranging musical interests. She will be much missed, but greatly appreciated in memory. Blessings to the family!

I still have fond memories of Phyllis from way back when I was in 8th grade at Queen's Lake and had the fortune to play trumpet in the Williamsburg Youth Orchestra. Little did I know then that the whole Varner fmily would end up having such a major impact on my life. When I went to W&M in the fall of 1976, Chuck would end up being a man who guided me through a period of my life when I was in serious need of some guidance... and Phyllis was right there through all of the band camps and such. They are both missed here, but I know that they are together in a much better place.

I'm so sorry! Phyllis was such a delight. I remember her gentle, sweet nature. She was always learning something interesting:)

I regret that I will be unable to attend the funeral service due to a conflict. I knew Phyllis primarily through her late husband as a result first of my being a member of the William & Mary Band, and subsequently as a member and even officer of the W&M Alumni Band, but always found her to be delightful company.
