I will always treasure my time with Phyllis. My sweet neighbor. I saw her almost everyday unless they had company. We loved to talk and share our life memories together. My husband John and I played cards with her and Gene every week. Gene loved it, Phyllis loved more what I would come up with for goodies to eat. She loved my You Tube videos Gluten Free Victorian Woman. She was proud I was her neighbor. She had a way to always make anyone feel happy to be with her. I miss her all the time but I am so happy she was my friend.

Phyllis was very kind, she had a big heart, and I loved spending time with her and chit chatting on the evenings Gene was playing cards. Caring for Phyllis and Gene was truly a pleasure. May she rest in peace. Sending prayers and well wishes to her family during this difficult time.

My father married my mother at the beginning of my teenage years so I have known her 40+ years and I consider all her family even though not “blood “ relatives to be family and grieve greatly also at her loss . My father whom I think the world of told me that she made him happy and that she was a wonderful person and wife also the when she made a friend that they were friends for life. I can also say that she never had an unkind word to say about anyone in life and that she had faith in God . I believe that one day on the other side of this life that I will see Dad and mom again .💔🙏🏻☮️✝️

Our Deepest condolence to the family. Just know she is home now and I am sure Gene was waiting for her. We at Lake Stockton Elks Lodge loved them very much. We always enjoyed when Gene would sing to Phyliss. They were such a joy. Gene would even help cook at times. He had to teach me how to fix his favorite drink. They are missed. Thank-you to all the family for sharing them with us.

Grandma you are truly missed. I am so blessed and so extremely beyond lucky to have you as my grandma. As second oldest grandchild, we have so many memories! As a kid I remember being so proud at the pepper valley pool with you as my grandma, you looked just like Barbie with your floppy hat and yellow sexy swimsuit:)
Every Christmas we had huge parties at the house. Although we were not financially wealthy by any means, you always made everyone feel rich with love, acceptance and kindness... and THIS I will cherish forever and ever. I aspire to be just like you and just pray I will one day have your grace and abundance of love to share with everyone I meet, just like you. I love and miss you forever.
