Phyllis was one of the sweetest people ever to grace this earth, and I was fortunate enough to have known her when we both were enjoying life! She and Leonard were neighbors of mine and my late husband when “The Gardens” were newly built. Our small group of neighbors shared some wonderful times together.
As we each moved forward as widows and faced the other changes that life and aging bring, we often chatted at our mailboxes or by phone, encouraging one another. My daughter took me once to visit her after she moved to assisted living. I’m not sure she truly recognized me then, but you wouldn’t have guessed as she was her same sweet and gracious self, and still beautiful. I pray she is at eternal rest and joyfully reunited with Leonard and all those she loved.

My dear Aunt Phyllis, I remember when you came to Indiana to meet us and how beautiful you were. I remember how sweet you and Uncle Leonard were together. I remember your singing. I remember fun times at your house on Windsor. I remember you getting on to me for parking at work, red solo cups in the Southwest office and closing the elevator door on me, too. 🤪 But one of my most cherished memories was sitting with you alone by Uncle Leonard after he passed and seeing the deep love you had for him. I’ll miss you Aunt Phyllis. I love you!

Sweet Aunt Phyllis, You and Uncle Leonard taught me so much! Not just about oil and gas properties, how to do research everywhere! But also how to be a loving and kind, and patient family!!
(My husband Dave worshipped you for your beef brisket, too!)
