I used to work with Phyllis at NAR. I would go downstairs and tell the girls good morning and she was always dressed so nice, beautiful hair, such a sweet voice,always so nice and never had a bad word to say about anyone. What a lovely lady she was. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

For all of the family, I regret your loss and its occurrence so close to her birthday and at the start of the holiday season. As hurtful as the loss is, it is reason for thanks that her battle is over. I will always remember her as the charming, petite, immaculate little lady doing her utmost to keep the world around her properly organized while never failing to be current on all of the details of the grandchildren. May her charming smile always be the memory that comes to mind as the future holiday seasons come along. She was a family treasure.
Ray, your care-giving of Phyllis is like your efforts in all else in your life, dedicated and unswerving. Rest well, knowing that her place is now one of rest and peace.
