Mrs. Phyllis was always so kind, and full of love with a huge SMILE. She loved Jesus and children so much. Such a sweet memory for me as a young kid and young adult at PABC. My daughter Meagan remembers how kind she was as her Mission Friends teacher. God made Mrs. Phyllis very special. Our Lord has received one more sweet angel.

Oh, my. I had no idea. I loved her so. I worked with her for years in the nursery at Portland Avenue. How she loved my Lindsey. She was born on Hank's birthday. Plyllis always called her "our baby".

Hank, Linda and Steve,
Phyllis was such a great lady. She touched so many lives and was loved by so many. She was always proud of "her Bluebirds" and cared for my children in the nursery at Portland Ave. She was a true friend to my parents.
I know the struggle she endured for so long is finally over and she is now experiencing great joy. In your grief, I pray that you think of her in perfect peace and you can rest in God's comforting arms.
Love and prayers, Jeanne Prince and Debbie Lasater (Allen)
