Such a beautiful soul has been taken from us far to soon! Heaven has gained another Angel...

Phyllis, Rest In Peace my Friend. Many memories were made our senior year and after. South "D" Street at the Trhlin's as well as South "B" street at the Buckley's sure were some great free spirited fun memories.
Your love for life and all that it had to offer was one of the things in life that I envied about you. God has received an angel who will have her hands full being the guardian for all left behind. I'm sure when you arrived there was loving arms and hugs just waiting for you. Our Love and Prayers to John and your family. Until we meet again. Keep the Gardens growing and Sunshine glowing upon your beautiful smile.
Love you, Valerie and Butch Buckley

Phyllis was such a sweetheart. When you saw her, she was smiling. She will be missed. God’s gardens will be well cared for by Sweet Phyllis. Rest In Peace.

Phyllis you will be missed. From 1972 when we met at LW High to our years working at JFK. You have always been such a warm and wonderful friend. I know that your family will miss your wonderful spirit and loving nature. I know that when ever we sat down to visit we somehow wound up in fits of laughter. I will miss that laugh. God speed Phyllis .
