Phyllis will be remembered as a fantastic, fun loving mother and grandmother. She also was very close to her brothers and sisters and loved the time she spent with them. Phyllis enjoyed working outside in her yard and garden. The family has many memories of her picking up sticks and acorns. She loved owls, was fascinated by the insects she would find and was enamored with Monarchs. Though the family is terribly sad, they are also grateful that she is at peace. She is now with her son Tyler walking in a field full of flowers, surrounded by beautiful butterflies.
Services will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial donation to Harbor House Hospice of Michigan in Phyllis’s name.

I am missing everything about you. Mainly before the sad started kicking you down. I’m still not good with words. I just want you to know I am safe. Love you

Before my Mother passed, I sat next to her holding her hand. Looking down, I realized that my hand was so much like hers in size, skin and lines. My Mother's hands were now mine. Within those hands lie a lifetime of loving, working and caring.
From the first caress she gave me to that moment where I was suddenly caring for her, my Mother's hands were filled with a vitality that ebbed from a heart overflowing with love. Though she has passed on, her strength and love remains through the hands and hearts of her children. We are her greatest legacy. My Mother held us close and yet pushed us to be our own selves. She taught us that family is more important than things and dreams are worth leaving home for because home will always be in our hearts.
I am grateful to have had Phyllis Booth as my Mother and I honor her life with joy in my heart because that is what she wants for each of her children; to remember the laughter, smiles and love. Thank you Mom for these amazing hands and all the lessons in life that have allowed me to walk through each day with a heart filled with positivity and love.

Mom because of you I’m the man I am today. Your responsible for bringing many into this world from your children to your great grandchildren. You passed your craziness and love for life onto all of us. Although your no longer a phone call away I’ll still reach out to you. I love you more than I could ever express.
