Community leader Phyllis Clingner died Wednesday afternoon after a lengthy illness. She may be best remembered as a driving force for helping to improve the quality of life here in Campbell County. Though she was not a native, she loved this community as if she was.
She served in many leadership roles around the county but spent years with Community Health of East Tennessee (CHET). CHET CEO Teresa Dabney said last evening, “Phyllis cared deeply about CHET and our mission to serve Campbell County, and it was shown through the many programs she orchestrated while at CHET.” Dabney goes on to say that she touched many lives. Young and old.
“She will be missed greatly by each of us and the community. We are all heart broken tonight,” said Dabney.
Funeral arrangements are incomplete and will be announced when available by WLAF. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 08/16/2018-6AM)
