Phyllis Ann "Phyl" Prentice Saugey

of Alexander, AR

September 27, 1955 - November 15, 2020

Phyllis Ann ''Phyl'' Prentice Saugey, age 65, went to walk with our Lord on Sunday evening November 15, 2020 at home after suffering a massive heart attack.

Phyllis was born in Sacramento, California on September 27, 1955 and raised in the Air Force family of Maj. Robert and Mildred Prentice. Phyllis became a ''free spirit'' at an early age and was quite a handful. She classified herself as an ''Airforce brat'' and has lived in Batesville, Arkansas, Bradenton Florida and Little Rock, and earned a Bachelor's degree from UCA. She loved to teach children and could teach you how to swim in a snap. She was known for her big heart, compassion and love for animals, kids and people in need. She was also one of the ''Villa Girls'' from the Italian restaurant in Little Rock where she made life-long friendships that endure to this day.

Phyllis was married on Oct. 2, 1999 to John W. Saugey of Little Rock, where she found her calling in the Estate and Auction Industry with John who is an Auctioneer. Phyllis found the business rewarding by helping folks in their time of need work through the process of liquidating an estate. Her compassion and caring helped many folks through a tough time. Phyl also became a licensed Auctioneer, and together they would conduct Estate Auctions and fundraiser events for many organizations and families over the next 23 years. She called an auction Sunday afternoon and loved every minute of it.

Phyllis was preceded in death by her father, Maj. Robert ''Bob'' Prentice, USAF Ret. and Stephen Smith, her older brother. Phyl is survived by her husband, John of Alexander (Lake Norrell Community); mother, Mildred Prentice of N. Little Rock; sister, Sonia Graham (Roger, Sarah and Olivia) also of Alexander; brother, Marc Prentice (Lori, Patricia, Tori and Patrick) of Ocala Florida and other loved ones in California and Florida.

Phyllis helped people all that she could right up to the end as an approved and successful tissue and organ donor. Hopefully a little of her compassion, personality and stubbornness will also transfer. Lord help the recipients.
