Mary Phyllis Gaigher passed away suddenly on February 14, 2013 in Houston. Phyllis was born September 21, 1953 in Corpus Christi to Harry and Mary Alice Erkert. She is survived by her husband of 30 years and the love of her life, Dr. Luciano (Lou) Gaigher; son, John Erkert of Poteau, OK; sister, Catherine Selix and husband John of Boerne, TX; niece, Sarah Selix of San Antonio; and nephew, Kyle Selix of Boerne, TX.
Phyllis worked as the office manager with her husband's chiropractic practice in the Nassau Bay area. She loved cats and throughout her married life, there were always cats in her house. She would never turn her back on a hungry stray that wandered to her home. She had a big heart and strong convictions about right and wrong and she lived her life accordingly. She was eager to help family and friends in times of need. She and Lou especially enjoyed traveling and going on cruises with their dear friends. She will be greatly missed and she will be forever in our hearts and thoughts.
