The couple lived in Luxemburg all their married life. She was a member of St. Wendelin's Catholic Church, Christian Mothers, Women of the Moose
, and the Catholic Aide Association. Phyllis was kind, fair, and enjoyed a good laugh. She was a very social person who enjoyed visiting with neighbors and her Monday Coffee Club. A very good cook, Phyllis liked canning tomatoes, making pickles, and baking homemade bread. She loved gambling, playing cards, dice and going to the casino. Phyllis also loved to travel and wintered in California for the last 9 years. She loved and cared for everyone she met and worried about everyone except herself. Most of all, Phyllis adored her family and her grandchildren. She will be dearly missed.
