I had the pleasure of knowing Phyllis for quite a few years. Her son Randy, was married to my sister in law Debbie (Smith) Brown. Phyllis was always happy and upbeat. She enjoyed life to the fullest and was so very supportive of her children and their families. Whenever I'd see Phyllis, she had a wonderful smile and welcoming. loving attitude. She was very strong and determined. She was well loved by many and will be sorely missed. My condolences to the entire extended family.

What a lovely woman Aunt Phyllis was. She was always smiling, and her love for her family was always evident in everything she did. She had a special joy for living and, even through the many sadnesses and losses in her life , she managed to show her strength and spirit and she kept her joy for living. She will be missed.
My condolences to her children Jeanie, Jackie, and Allison and to her extended family. I’ll always remember how thoughtful Phyllis was. She was my last living aunt.
With deepest sympathy,
Brenda ( Bouthot ) Owen
