She was Elbert County's first female medical doctor and practiced there for 50 years. A native of Bowman, Mrs. O'Neal was a daughter of Dr. Walton A. Johnson and Ruth Teasley Johnson.

She was a graduate of Agnes Scott College and The Medical College of Georgia, where she was one of two women in her class, graduating at the age of 23.
She began her medical practice as an internist but switched to anesthesiology when she began practicing in Elberton. She and her husband, Dr. John B.

She served on the staff of Elbert County Memorial Hospital, was Medical Director for Elbert County's three nursing homes and a member of the American Medical Association.
A strong believer in education, she testified in front of the Sibley Commission during the 1950's, when there was a movement to close the public schools rather than integrate. Despite the risk of financial and social repercussions, she took the then controversial stand of keeping the public schools open.

In the 1970's, she and her husband served as medical missionaries to Montero, Bolivia through the United Methodist Church. They provided medical equipment, vaccines and medical training to students. They also raised funds to build an emergency wing at the Montero Community Hospital.
Dr. Phyllis also served her community as an active member of the Elberton Civic League and President of the Elbert County Chapter of the Council on Child Abuse. She was involved in the founding of the Spring Valley Corporation, a non-profit group that built and governed Spring Valley Convalescent Center and Petersburg Towers.

O'Neal III., M.D. and is survived by her children, Patricia O'Neal Paterson of Morrow, Ga., Pamela O'Neal, M.D. of Resaca, Ga., John B.
