Phyllis was a family extraordinaire. She may not have been famous to the world but to her family she was. She touched every heart that was lucky enough to be in her presence. Every family event was filled with laughter and joy. A favorite experience of her grandchildren was an early morning phone call of her singing happy birthday.
Phyllis enjoyed square-dancing, cooking and canning, traveling, flower gardening, and fishing with Fred. She enjoyed watching sports and attending sporting events. She loved playing games, especially beating her grandchildren at poker. She loved God, she loved people, and she absolutely loved her family.
