Phyllis is my Aunt, and I LOVE HER VERY MUCH! I have so many memories of when I was growing up. I stayed all night at her place a lot, and we would go strawberry picking in May. I just always had a good time when I was with her! My husband said she was always nice to us. I loved being around her girls, we all got along so well and enjoyed being together! I am sorry I didn't get to see her over the past few years, but I am sick myself and I live out of state. She will be missed! My prayers are with Kelly and the rest of the family during this time, I LOVE YOU!

Phyllis was my childhood bus driver, she was so kind and loved all of us on her bus. Her smiling face was always the first one I'd see. She has always had a special place in my heart.

Phyllis was not my bus driver, but she was the one we all wanted! We all knew who she was and loved any minute that she spent with us or spoke to us! She was such a special part of so many lives! I remember meeting her as an adult and as soon as I saw her I knew exactly who she was! The hair was the same! Love and prayers to her family and friends, she touched so many hearts and gave us all special memories to store in our hearts.
