Phyllis was my mother Selika's, first cousin. She was around when we were kids, keuka lake trips, holiday dinners, etc. I remember playing with her kids and just a warm woman whom I hadn't seen now in at least 40-45 years. I'm sorry for the family and I have hazy but fond memories!

Jeff, Dawn, Ian & Jenna, Our thoughts and prayers are with and your families at this difficult time. It was pleasure to know your mother. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you.

Phyllis and I were friends and classmates at Southside High School. We enjoyed sharing old memories at our class reunions. We are so sorry for your loss. Duane and Catherine Padgett
