Phyllis Leone Aeby
December 12, 1936 – November 21, 2019
November 21, 2019 the world lost an angel as the heavens gained one. Phyllis Leone Aeby passed at Novant Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte while surrounded and comforted by her loving family.
She was 82 years old and was born December 12, 1936 in Flint, Michigan to her parents Vivian L. and Marvin C. Summitt. In January 1955 Phyllis graduated early from Flint Technical High School. During her senior year she met her loving and devoted husband of 62 years Charles F. Aeby. They were married on June 22, 1957. Phyllis enjoyed her career as the only drafts woman at the Flint engineering office of Michigan Bell after high school. They moved in 1958 while Charles was attending the University of Michigan.
Her passions were cooking, sewing, knitting, crafting and most of all spending time with her family and teaching them her passions. In Michigan she was a Boy Scout and Girl Scout leader, PTA member, and a church youth leader. Phyllis was always a devout and active member of the United Methodist Church. She attended Bible Studies, Questers, and volunteered where ever needed. She loved life and nature and was close to her Heavenly Father.
Phyllis was the loving and attentive matriarch of her family. She is survived by her husband Charles and their children Paul F. Aeby, Martha L. Aeby Shumate (Henry), David M. Aeby, Mary J. Aeby Shoemaker (Roger), John A. Aeby (Precious), and their twenty one grandchildren and twenty two great grandchildren. She loved her family and friends so dearly that even friends became family. She had a beautifully contagious smile for anyone.
She was preceded in death by her parents and only sibling Jean Ann Summitt Eavy Arms.

I met Phyllis at Questers. A historical group, that met in the Matthews Area several years ago. She was so lovely. I enjoyed her immensely. Her and Chuck's devotion to each other was awe inspiring. She will be missed. Chuck, you and all the family are in my heart, thoughts and prayers. She was a devote Christian and I know she is no longer in pain , she is whole again and she is with her Heavenly Father. Please put your faith in God and you will be able to be with her again.
