After graduating high school, Phyllis moved to Denver where she spent most of her life working in real estate. Over the years, she enjoyed working at Ridgewood Realty and ReMax 100 Realty and managing numerous rental properties. If it had been possible, she would have worked up to her passing.

She is survived by her daughter Patricia (Pattie) Jean Stermole, her son Gary David Edelen, her granddaughter Lindsey (Stermole) Pederson (Andy Pederson), her grandsons Nicholas Edelen, Jesse Edelen, Seth Edelen, Alex Edelen and four great-grandchildren.
