We are all so sad to hear about Phyllis. I enjoyed working with her and loved her irreverent sense of humor. She was missed when she retired and will be missed even more now. Wishing peace of heart to all of her family. She was a special lady and we will keep her in our hearts.

Phyllis was a dedicated volunteer at DML. She always made us smile with her special sense of humor. At OLof C church Phyllis could be found in the same pew singing with a sweet voice. I am blessed to have had her as a friend. My condolences to her family. May Phyllis now rest in peace. Barbara Kelliher

Dear Linda, Paul and Glen.
I am heartbroken over the loss of your dear mother Phyllis....we first met when we both worked at Boston Edison well over 50 years ago and have kept that friendship ever since ....Phyllis was great company and a joy to be around....The one thing I remember about her was, no matter where we were, or just talking on the phone, she had that great ability to make me laugh....I am going to miss that.

My deepest sympathy to Phyllis' family. For many years she checked in books at the library and made the calls for those who had a book on request. She had a fun sense of humor and she and I shared the same hairdresser. We all miss seeing her on Tuesday mornings.

I had the pleasure of working with Phyllis when our IFAW Headquarters was on Route 6A in Yarmouth Port. She always had a smile on her face, and a piece of chicken for my blind senior dachshund Heinrich who accompanied me to work every day. We all missed her so much after she retired. My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this very sad time.

You were and are loved very much. A piece of my heart died with you when you passed on. I will miss you more than you know.

I am very grateful to your 3 wonderful children for being there for you while you were sick. The three of them are a tribute to You and Uncle Paul.

God Bless!
