Not sure what to say?

Phyllis was always busy: volunteering, church, crafts, sewing,, and other crafts. She was always with her daughter by her side. I can't remember if we met through churches, crafts, 4-H, or rabbit showing, but our paths continued to cross

Condolences to Phyllis' family.from a member of her school family. HCHS Class of 1962 mourns the loss of another classmate and friend. She is missed.

Phyllis, you were such an inspiration to so many. When i was a child, i looked up to you as a second mother.
But we grow as adults... and you STILL kept me in your thoughts. Sending banana bread to Vegas isn't cheap. Either are the many catnip toys you sewed for my cats. I'm so sorry i wasn't there for you AND Marcia, when you met your Lord. You are part of our family. You've been there for every major family event. You will be missed immensely.


I'm so sorry about the loss of your mom. She was loving, sweet, and just a genuinely good person. My heart is with you during this difficult time.

So very sorry, Marcia, for your loss. I will always remember your mom leading the services at 1st Christian when Kingery and Laura were away and I filled in on the piano. She always was so cheerful and you were always such a big help to her.

Phyllis I am so lost for words, thank you so much for welcoming in to the church family and being a wonderdul kids corner to Camille. I have so many wonderful memories that I will forever cherish, and the Nascar talks, I am going to miss them. RIH my dear friend

You are loved and dearly missed
